wasn't bad at all.
It seems, Alice Vaughn has it all. A partnership in one of the best private investigation firms in Los Angeles, and an impending marriage to a successful Venture Capitalist.
She's involved in a case where someone is trying to gain info on all of her companies clients.
While staking out an art gallery for a possible thief, she catches a guy trying to steal a valuable painting. One down, but the elusive, Mister X, still seems to be one step ahead of her Team.
In her usual style, Shonda Rhimes has put together another slick series. Beautiful people, dressed as beautiful people only know how to dress. Seriously, great wardrobe designer.
Back at the firm the next morning, Val, also a partner, forces Alice to sample cakes for her impending nuptials. Alice also shows Val her wedding dress. Everything is moving toward the big day.
Later that evening, when she arrives home, we meet her fiance, Benjamin Jones taking a shower. We also learn this is the same guy involved with a heist at another firm under the auspices of Alice and Val's company.
Alice gives Benjamin a check for $1.4Mil for a house they plan on buying, "I want to be a partner in this marriage."
Of course Ben would rather buy the house himself. Yeah, right!
But something strange happens. Benjamin tries to convince Alice to run away with him, forget about the big wedding, and elope. "We can go anywhere you want. We never have to be found"
. This is real strange for a con-man to say to his mark. She tells him they can't do that. Plus, she's involved in this big case.
The next day, Benjamin Jones disappears. I mean, totally disappears. A friend of his goes through Alice's house and removes any trace of his existence. His own house, is completely gutted of furniture and belongings. She heads to his firm, and also finds it completely empty. She comes to the conclusion, her fiance, is also Mr. X.
I liked the Pilot
. Curious to see how the cat-and-mouse chase is going to continue. I'll be watching.
