  • Brilliant episode.

    I loved the season premiere, but I have to say this one was a fraction better. The scenes in Maracaibo were highly fascinating, and I love it when the show goes to places off the beaten track, and this one fulfilled that criteria and then some.



    McQuaid is an interesting character, but I have to say that I like him more than I liked Calder this time last year, and he turned out to be alright, so hopefully I will say the same about McQuaid come the end of this season.



    Very interested to see how they'll get themselves out and where the story goes from here. It was a really good hour and plenty of action!moreless

    I think Amy Jo Johnson could be a good addition to the show, but having her instantly sleep with Auggie felt like a forced attempt for the show to get younger.



    Solid episode overall, but this was more about setting the stage for the rest of the year than giving us an incredible show tonight.

    Que absurdo: mostraram o mercado Modelo e o elevador Lacerda de Salvador na Bahia como se fosse Maracaibo. Ridculo demais. Everybody knows that. Totally disgusting.

    So. Annie has a serious illness if not treated properly. How she got it? How will this affect her work? And now that McQuaid knows, will he use that against her or the agency? He said he doesn't care but I don't trust this guy and, if Eyal is not returning (I'm not saying he's not at all), he could 'replace' him as Annie's 'partner'. Besides, he is so yummy. And now that Arthur is working for him it could be a good thing for the CIA as an 'intel provider'.moreless
