"Great Aussie Television."

What an excellent surprise that reminds us of what Australian Drama should be. Underbelly is hitting all the marks. Parts of this episode were a little predictable but that is in no way the fault of the writers. Gangsters as it would be are some what predictable when it comes to looking out for their own.

This episode focused on Tracey and her child who try and escape the Moran family. I am frustrated that Tracey put more value on having her child "surrounded by family" than his own life. She had been a part of that network of gangsters for long enough to know what they are capable of and the lengths they will go to. Leaving the state would have been the common sense solution.

The montage of Mother and Son leading up to the killing was a little tacky and also made it more obvious about what was about to happen. Apart from this its Great Aussie Television.
