"Lie to Me" on Fox explores body language analysis as a business in law enforcement

Episode 19 of Season 2 was called “Pied Piper” (directed by Paul McCrane) and presents the Lightman Group with the challenge of possibly having helped the Commonwealth of Virginia execute the wrong person for a crime 17 years ago. The viability of the business is challenged. Eli Loker (Brendan Hines), the “honest man”, says their reputations will be ruined and that the time to start to look for another job is when you have one.

The usual phone calls are recurring, and Lightman has to consider whether they got the wrong man or there is a copycat. A statement made in Latin at the execution (which opens the episode, as if picking up the 50s film “I Want to Live”) by the condemned contains a vital clue.

There is also a scene where Lightman shakes down a home business producing gay “adult” photographs.
