More of Christopher Chance’s back story will be revealed this week on “The Wife’s Tale” on Human Target when we begin to realize the reasons he uses his body for target practice to protect other people. The guilt he feels from his past drives him and in this episode perhaps he’ll get a chance to redeem himself. In “The Wife’s Tale” Chance (Mark Valley) has the chance to save the wife of a man he himself killed. This will be Ilsa’s first time to work Chance so she’ll be learning more about exactly what she’s gotten herself into. The audience will also get to learn more about their new sidekick Ames (Janet Montgomery) that has joined the team. This sassy young thief reminds me of ‘Parker’ (Beth Riesgraf) on TNT’s “Leverage” and that’s a good thing!
Official Synopsis: Chance must protect the wife (guest star Parker) of a man he killed seven years ago as his conscience eats at him for his past misdeeds. Meanwhile, Ames hopes Guerrero will take her under his wing, and Ilsa is shocked at what she discovers about the business.
“The Wife’s Tale” episode of HUMAN TARGET airs Wednesday, Nov. 24 (7p.m.C/MST) on FOX 13/31 in Denver Colorado (TV-14 L, V).
If you missed last week here’s a quick recap of “Ilsa Pucci”.
Human Target hit it out of the park last week with it’s season 2 opener “Ilsa Pucci”. The TV audience was reintroduced to our hero’s Christopher Chance (Mark Valley) as he and Guerrero (Jackie Earl Haley) team up to rescue Winston (Chi McBride) from his kidnappers. The beautiful mysterious Ilsa Pucci (Indira Varma) traveled all the way to an Indian Ashram to employ Chance to protect her after her husband is killed. He and his team accept the job and Pucci soon learns that she has to trust Chance completely if she plans to live.
During a party that Chance stages to bring out the killers, a thief enters who was hired to switch rings with Pucci with one that has a tracking device in it. The team had their eye on the thief but she was so skilled they didn’t know what she had done until after she was caught with the ring. Winston recognizes Ames (Janet Montgomery) as a troublesome teenager from his days on the police force. Ames didn’t realize that the job she was hired for was going to involve kidnapping and possible murder so she volunteers to help in any way she can to rescue.
The team successful rescues the billionairess Ilsa Pucci from her kidnappers and she is so grateful and impressed that she offers to be a silent partner and bankroll their financially struggling operation. Winston and Guererro begin to drool when she talks about private jets and buying them a tank. There are some great chase scenes, gun battles, hand to hand combat and some snappy dialogue so if you missed the season premiere go to FOX and watch it in it’s entirety online.
