  • Jamie takes a vacation with Becca, and it turned to assassinate a man, during her apparent time off. Starring Michelle Ryan, Miguel Ferrer, Molly Price, Lucy Kate Hale, Will Yun Lee, Chris Bowers, and Mark Shepard.moreless

    9.0
    This was one of the best shows that came to the 2007 television schedule. I really enjoyed the episode, and the series while it lasted. Meanwhile, this was a cleverly plotted episode, with Jamie (Michelle Ryan) and Becca (Lucy Kate Hale) going on a vacation. This was a really good idea, and a way to show that no matter what happens Jamie will always be working, and really neve have a break. The show kept getting better and better, and i think this was the best jumjp the shark episodes that was filled with the best action that could've been asked for.moreless
  • Premature finale - Its good...

    8.4
    but could have been so much better! Given the disjointed nature of the last 7 episodes, its no surprise that the same afflicts this one. The plot has a good premise, even if its out of character. It provides suitable setting for an exciting if flawed plot full of intrigue (Jonas mystery job, and his ultimely death), action (Jaime's attempt to kill the traitor scientist and then switch to helping him escape his goons) to an action packed ending that unfornately doesnt leave you satisfied.



    The change in location is good, if purely functional. A lack of special effects doesnt really convey Jaime is bionic - just not enough to make you overlook the numerous production flaws. Admitedly though I love Michelle Ryan, she doesnt make this role her own, and it probably came too early in her career. Her onscreen sister however was a bundle of much needed enery and liven's up what is a times dull and morose episode/series.



    Given that that this is the last episdoe of the show, I can see why it was canned. That isnt to say it could have become a great show, but given the competition you need to get it right near enough from day one! The fact that after 8 shows there is no standardised pace, format and style - its probably a good thing that this was cancelled. Maybe if theyd kept Sarah Corvus for the last 4 episodes, it may have had the kind of arc to allow them a platform to build from. As it is I only hope we see more of Ryan and Lucy Hale in other productions!



    Thanks for the brief glimpse of what could have been.moreless

    After Pope's death, Jonas makes Jaime go on vacation. There, she and Becca meet Nick and his father Vincent. Vincent must be killed, but Jaime can't do it. Jonas tells Jaime that if she wants, she can tell Becca about her job. From coming home, Jaime decides not to tell Becca about her work. Jae teaches Nathan how to fight.



    This was a really great episode! I was sad to know that it was the last one and they didn't finish the story. I really liked this show! I wanted Jaime to tell Becca. This episode gets a 10 out of 10 from me!moreless
  • Coming along OK but a little fine tuning. And ripping cars doors of is getting old.

    9.4
    The series is coming along OK. There seems to be something missing to make it a great show. And the old gage of riping the door off a car is getting old, and not realistic. I have tried to ripe car doors open in the past and the only thing that gets riped of the car is the door handle.



    I had to get into my cars a few time in the winter stuck out in a blizzard, doors frosen shut banging ice off around the door pulling as hard as I could and only to fall on my but and the door handle still in my hand. Thats when I learned to get into a frozen car door from the passanger side first, that way the driver door will still work.







    P.A.R.T(People Against Reality Television) I am starting this movment to get TV stations to stop making any more reality TV programs. They need to get They're thinking caps and there pocket books out, and stop making generic programs and start making quality televisionmoreless
  • great episode

    Jaime deals with the death of antonio. She's ordered to go on a vacation, but the vacation turns into a mission when an assassin commits suicide. Jaime needs to take his place and she needs to shield her sister from witnessing anything she's doing. It's an exciting episode. Jaime's got herself into a middle of a mess that she's not supposed to be a part of. The writers came up with another great episode. It's fast paced, each scene was shot and edited properly. The running effect is the big draw of every episode. They used it again on this one, it's a great one.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • Goof: When Jamie borrows the valet's phone to call Jonah, she only presses one key. The valet would not have Jonah's number on speed dial.

    • Goof: In the scene where Jaime takes the rifle to go kill Nick's dad, the bottom of the suitcase where the gun is hidden is open (we can see the bullets), immediately after the camera shoots from a closer angle and she's removing clothes and opening the bottom of the suitcase again.

    • When Jaime calls Jonas on her cell phone, a bunch of information about her pops up on his computer, made available to him by a program he installed. Information about Jaime includes:

      SSN: 987-65-4327
      Height 5'7"
      Date of birth: Feb. 23, 1983
      Mother: deceased
      Father: resides in Des Moines

    • Jaime: You know what, I'm getting used to it.
      Nitpick:  About two minutes into the episode Michelle Ryan (Jaime) clearly slips while speaking and forgets to hide her British accent during this line. The British accent is most clear when she says "what".

    • Jaime and Becca stay at room 108 and this episode is 1x08 (season 1, episode 8).

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Jaime: Are you mad at me?
      Becca: No.
      Jaime: It seems like you got something on your mind.
      Becca: That's the most you've said for the past two days.

    • Nathan: I can tell when you're rolling your eyes.
      Jaime: Can you tell when I don't care?
      Nathan: Touche!

    • Jaime: Jonas, he's dead. He's lying right in front of me and he's dead.
      Jonas: How?
      Jaime: Maybe it has something to do with a hypodermic needle sticking out of his arm.

    • Jonas: The way I see it you've got two options. Number one I kill you. The other one is you talk, and by talk I mean you tell me everything I need to know to keep this technology out of North Korea. Which would you prefer it doesn't matter to me, I just need to know whether or not to wear gloves.

    • Nathan: I wanna learn how to fight.
      Jae: Aren't you supposed to be at a Star Trek convention or somethin'?

    • Jonas: It's just a briefcase.
      Jaime: Antonio used to say a briefcase is never just a briefcase.
      Jonas: Yeah well, Antonio's dead.

    • Jaime: You have no idea do you?
      Nathan: What about sex? No, none, zero. I do know that women cry a lot afterwards.

    • Jae: (making a cheer) To Antonio Pope. It was an honor to know him, to work with him ... and I miss you pal.
      Jonas: Yep. (everyone cheers)

    • Becca: (about Nick) Isn't he cute?
      Jaime: Super cute.
      Becca: And we hate all the same things...

    • Nathan: Why aren't you, uh, asking me who this guy is and why we're following him? Why aren't you peppering me with questions?
      Jaime: Fine, who is he?
      Nathan: He's a bad guy.
      Jaime: Why is he a bad guy?
      Nathan: 'Cause he does bad things. This is starting to sound like phone sex.
      Jaime: If this is what phone sex sounds like to you you're doing it wrong.

    • Ruth: (about Antonio) I slept with him once. He was amazing!
