Yes, “The Unusuals” is back after a two week break. Did you miss it? I sure did, in fact, between NBA playoffs and getting as many rides as possible on Manta, I forgot that it was on last night. Luckily my DVR worked and so I bring you the recap, slightly delayed.

This weeks episode starts with the end of a foot chase, in which Dets. Shraeger and Walsh run down a small child wearing a backpack and then flashes back to the previous day. Where we see that Dets. Banks and Delahoy interview and eighty-seven year old man who attempted to rob an armored truck unarmed.

Welcome back to another edition of “The Unusual(s) Recap”! If you missed last nights episode, check it out at ABC’s “The Unusuals” page! If you missed any of my prior recaps, check them out here.

This weeks episode starts off with a couple big bangs before the first commercial break! First a Det. Powell shows up asking Det. Walsh for help. Powell is from a different precinct but used to work with Walsh. His knuckles and shirt are bloody and he says “I may have killed someone.” If that wasn’t enough Det. Delahoya was sitting in a restaurant when the Sgt. comes in and tells him “Son, your partner, Leo Banks, is dead.”

Welcome back to another week of “The Unusual(s) Recap.” This week’s episode is entitled “42” and when I saw that in my cable guide I immediately knew that this episode would have something major to do with the 42-year old Det. Banks.

As we have learned in the previous episodes, Det. Banks is obsessed with his own mortality and his own belief that he will die at the age of 42. He wears his bullet proof vest everywhere and even has covered his desk in foam padding, just in case. However, the episode started out with another of our favorite detectives taking a bullet…

I first want to apologize for the tardiness of my recap. Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Orlando Magic playoff game with the intention of watching “The Unusuals” when I got home. Unfortunately, my Bright House Networks DVR did not have the same intentions. It decided to ignore my series settings and didn’t record last night’s episode. Thank goodness for ABC’s website, where you can watch full episodes!

This week’s episode starts out at Det. Walsh’s house where Det. Beaumont is paying him an adult visit when she receives a phone call that obviously upsets her. We don’t hear the other side of the conversation, but it is very obvious that she needs to come up with $2,200 by the afternoon or something bad will happen. While she rushes to get ready, and lies to Walsh about where she is going, she cannot find her watch. Walsh quickly lets her borrow his, pointing out that it was his grandfathers. This watch leads to some bad decisions made by Beaumont during the rest of the episode.

Thanks for checking back for my second edition of The Unusual(s) Recap. You can check out last weeks recap here. This week ABC has blessed us with two brand new episodes of “The Unusuals”, so check back tomorrow morning for another recap.

This weeks episode starts out with Det. Delahoya and Det. Banks chasing a one man band, hence the title of the episode. You know, one of these guys. Even with the multiple instruments and bass drum on his back he managed to out run the detectives until Delahoya threw an apple and knocked him out. Not very realistic, but effective.
