SPOILER FOR EPISODE "KILLER EN ROUTE" While like to think of myself and most Uber users as world -savvy, this episode brought to mind the very real possibility of accepting a ride from a stranger as we do as no different than if we had done so as children-against the rules of safety our parents and schools pounded into us and nearly all of us followed . Yet, think about this: do we really know the depth of background checks run by Uber, Lyft, or Taxi 99 on their new drivers? It IS possible for a potential killer or rapist to have a spotless driving record, and unless my basic knowledge of law is wrong, there is no rule stating a person investigated or even charged with a crime cannot have a driver's license unless the crime involved the use of a vehicle. Looking on the net, it isn't cheap or quick for a company to run a person's background through a state or federal data base searching for red flags.In this episode, a regular citizen broken by the accidental death of his only child was able to penetrate the firewall of a company like Uber and kill innocents. Likely, his background check, if he chose to go in traditionally as a registered driver and collect personal information on his victims, wouldn't have turned up anything untoward. He could've worked for the company under the radar for months before striking. The scene where the protagonist and lead cyber investigator/psychologist lowers her weapon, approaches the killer, and disarms him with heartfelt empathy for the killer's loss is thin. This man killed two innocent people and took a third hostage and all that psychotic rage melted away because one person expressed empathy? Nah. BUT, I will say for the first time in a very long time, I felt empathy for the bad guy...for a moment...I felt for him and his pain which means something about this guy grabbed my conscience...maybe the hidden alter in his closet? This is another well produced JB series. Unlike the other series by JB, most of which I love, this one seems to be more focused on the team's personal lives and I look forward to seeing how they all bond and the cases they crack. Cases where being world savvy means hunting the unknown and unknowable...the world we all worry about but as average NET users are helpless to aptly and thoroughly defend ourselves as we blindly toss out our personal info into the great unknown and accept rides from strangers because, and I speak for myself here, my friends told me it was safe.
