The trend of every episode in season 5 is getting worse continued with this episode as it had nothing in it that I found even close to being significant to the plotline. Renee opens the box to find out that it was her father - only the later find out it isnt her father. The "Helix" excuse to double a person is something that the show has run out of. They have done it four times now and each time it has gotten less and less monemental to the overall plotline.
All of the scenes with Renee/Thomas/Sydney/"Renees Father" felt very forced and pointless. Even Dixon/Marshall/Rachels trip into the valut to get information was boring to watch. Arvin Sloane blackmailing the woman he needed to get into APO was the only big thing of note in this episode. Hopefully he will get the season back on track in the next episode with some lying and backstabbing. Overall, one of the worst episodes of the series and the worst episode of the season.
