Human Target - Run television review

Throwback Thursday takes us back to another episode from the First Season of Human Target. In “Run,” Christopher Chance (Mark Valley) attempts to protect District Attorney Allyson Russo (Kristin Lehman) and her quest to take down of a corrupt criminal empire with the help of a confidential informant who also happens to be her father (William B. Davis). In this instance keeping his client alive means going on the run from gangsters and corrupt cops who have much to lose if the old man decides to turn his ledger over the District Attorney. Adding a challenge to the chase is a tracker unknowingly swallowed by the client, something Guerrero (Jackie Earle Haley) helps with, and her her choice to keep her familial connection with her informant secret.

Although it’s the fifth episode of the series, “Run” works well as a reintroduction of Christopher Chance, his unorthodox crew, and the types of cases (and chances) he chooses to take. The episode also offers an epilogue which tells us one more thing about Mr. Chance: he hates loose ends and will not stop until a job is finished. The episode also alludes to Chance’s past, which will be further explored in the First Season finale.
