    This was another terrific episode, with some very interesting scenes in France. Absolutely loved the appearance of Natasha and everything it means for Auggie. I also really loved Annie's involvement in the mission at hand - that was some really great improvisation lol.



    Calder's storyline is alright too, and the stuff with Arthur in Iraq was very interesting and intense.



    All up, everything is moving on nicely, and I'm looking forward to seeing where the next episoed will take us.moreless

    I liked the backstory with the old flame and her return here. I would like to see Liane Balaban's Natasha appear more often on this show.



    Don't like the direction they're going with Annie though.

    Wow this episode was amazing!



    I loved seeing Auggie back in the field again I especially loved to see who the 'asset' was that he had to turn. It was pretty awesome to see these particular duo reunite again I loved their dynamic in the 1st Season and to see them together again was pretty fantastic!



    While Auggie was/is a great operative I was kinda disappointed by his actions, I mean I understand why he did what he did but still it was a pretty low move on his part.



    Despite that, I understood why Annie did what she did as well. To watch their separate spy-craft juxtaposed in this episode was both utterly compelling and sexy as well, the whole episode defiantly had a Season 1 nostalgia about it that I really adored!



    Joan offering Calder not only romantic guidance but political guidance was amazing to watch as well, I am loving his and Joan's slowly developing a real trust and camaraderie.



    Arthur's Op aboard was awesome it was so cool seeing just how of a badass he is in a dangerous situation. However I still don't trust Caitlin and McQuaid Security.





    By the end of this episode we got a valuable lead on the Chicago Incident and it looks like Annie will be back in Paris come next week, Also Auggie got a surprise visitor which is sure to cause his personal life to implode slowly I so didn't see that twist coming so I am so excited to see how our favorite blind tech-op will handle his new personal mess!



    I so hope that she and Auggie can reconcile I loathe seeing them be on bad terms.



    All in all this was another wonderfully structured episode in this thrilling 5th Season.



    Next week cannot come fast enough :)moreless
