*SPOILERS* Action packed, but not full of drama. At least not the type that builds up with tension. For me, this is an episode that promised so much and failed - again.
The "effects" demonstrating Jaime's bionic attributes have become pitiful. The running and jumping don't ring true in their motions. Thats the smallest of concerns though.
The plot just never has the chance to ferment and draw the viewer into the storylines. Dialogue is at times better than usual, but I still have no real connection to Jaime or any other character on the show. The only real occurance: Antonio's death is about the only redeeming aspect of this episode. The penultimate scenes are probably the best this show has had to date.
If you enjoy presidential assignment story line dont be fooled by it. There only purpose it serves is to setup the Antonio suspect/death plot. For that reason it never gets going as we chop between the primary locations where the president is threatened and Jaime going back to her flat. That really doesnt make sense - why are they on-duty then off-duty in a matter of minutes?!
The encounter with CIA agents was a bright spot. Jaimes friction with the agency could well have grown in one of the promising storylines of this show (if it had continued beyond 8).
However, all aspects: locations, scenes and dialogue just dont gel and appear bity!
A good attempt but not well made. Still worth a watch though.
