| Father and Son Reunion
I loved all the references to fantasy fiction and the twists and turns of symbols at play. The story writers were having a field day with plot puns, misdirection, and innuendo. Lewis is typically resistant to entering the imaginary worlds of his killers but with Hathaway's literary reflections and some bumpy reading by Lewis, they solve the mystery of classical dimensions. But for me the cherry on the cake of this episode was the meta-story of seeing father and son, James and Laurence Fox, working together. I bed they had as much fun acting in this one as I did watching them together.
