'The Cape' finds its stride ... too late?


The two-part story that concluded Monday (Feb. 21) on "The Cape" was maybe the show's strongest to date. We just wonder if it's going to matter in a couple months' time."The Lich" story, which concluded in Monday's episode, did a lot of things you would want from a first-year show at this stage: It broadened the scope of the action by incorporating some Palm City history.
