So why the heck isn't the show over? Because perhaps Gold drove this girl into terrible sex with terrible men who look like her father. In comes Enzo Cook (Ryan Kelley), A.J.'s friend and A.S.P. co-patient. Instead of oppositional defiance, his plight happens to be heroin. And not only did he see the murder take place, he claims to have seen Gold statutorily rape A.J. prior to her murder, which might've helped facilitate the romantic encounter that led to her death. Remember though the truly damning evidence: Martin Gold looks extremely creepy. But Enzo's credibility goes south when the police discover his thirst for needles.
The second half of the show is where Dr. Huang gets to shine. I guess the way it works is each minor character gets an episode like this to flourish. Huang can cure Enzo of his heroin addiction by administering ibogaine, which is supposed to magically cure the addiction. There's only one problem; it's illegal in the United States. So will Huang write up a prescription ... FOR BREAKING THE LAW?
Well, yes. Yes he does. And I love how they actually give a reason why he won't be on the show for a while, other than the truth, which is "the cast is pretty crowded."
Twist Factor — Hell, I already ruined it for you. So let's just agree on a 2 out of 10 and move on with it.
The Verdict — We the people find this episode, "Users," guilty of glorifying the use of pink iPhones. We were impressed how the murder was "solved" midway through but continued to surround the creepy A Sheltered Place therapist. We'll give a gold star to Dr. Huang, and recommend the next one goes to Detective Munch. And please: no more Internet starlets. We don't want people to get the impression that we're not hip enough when we admit never hearing of them.
