The basic plotline here is a recovery mission of a list of Berkut and CIA operatives and to get the man selling them. Having Jaime and Tom (the CIA op from the last mission) team up with their personal issues rated one notch above normal heart rate in the interest stakes. You can predict the romantic awkwardness they will feel in the mission. Yet both actors do pull it off without it being too cheesy.
The interagency dislike from both groups is palatable enough, if a little obvious too. But each little thing adds to the overall conflict that you will experience as Jaime tries to fulfill her mission. Dialogue still needs a lot to be desired. I dont find it as enjoyable as say an episode of House or CSI. It just feels laboured.
The setting is mainly in Paris, and Im afraid that the apparent use of picture boards and strategic locations is as bad as some of the fake french accents! Truly awful.
Jaime's bionic powers are getting worse if anything or at least the onscreen representations of them are. For instance, the running and jumping are just poor. They really needed to use cgi and not wire tech to get the job done. More so I cant believe for a second that her bionic limbs wouldnt snap bones if you even used just 1% of their capabilities. Her encounters with the baddies just dont work for me.
So the only real good thing in this episode is the drama behind the plotline, because the rest of the show is below par. The only reason this episode scores more than an 8 is because it was a times dramatic and a little exciting.
No wonder the show was dropped, Im afraid to say.
