  • Absolutely spectacular.

    This was one of the most enjoyable episodes of the season, as we deal with the aftermath of the drama with Mueller, and subsequently the actions of many of our main characters are called into question, setting up some interesting confrontations, not least of which was between Annie and Joan.



    The Auggie/Haley scenes were interesting too, as were the events with Roger and everything that went down on that front.



    And then to put the cherry on top of the sundae, we got a monumental conclusion to the episode, which really leaves me wondering about a lot of things!



    Can't wait to see what happens next - McQuaid is definitely hiding something, but the extent to which his secrets go is up for debate. Very exciting things coming!moreless

    A bit uneven at times, and it still feels odd that the show has nothing to do with Annie, its central character, but overall it was an enjoyable episode.

    I think he is in the wrong place and knows the wrong people too many times. I don't think Annie is falling for it, but we will see.
  • Ok episode but

    6.0
    I dont get Annie's logic. Just because you "sacrificed" your self for the agency and country doesnt mean to can run the operation your own way and hide from your superiors.

    Wow once again I was totally blown away by this episode!



    To see Annie's position within the CIA so securitized was pretty horrible, especially given all that she has endured these past few years, I liked how angry she became and then consequentially turned that anger into resolve, pretty awesome.



    Eric Barber first congratulating Annie and then enthusiastically introducing her to her 'newish' desk was a major highlight for me and much needed comic relief in this quite dark episode!



    I loved how Auggie continued without fail to give his support to Annie, I really wanna see a romantic reconciliation between them, but I regardless I did enjoy their moments this week, I especially loved how Annie went straight to the Berlin Wall Memorial after she had gotten the news, it was a pretty amazing mirror of the couple's scene from Season 4's premiere, I thought it was awesome to see them come somewhat full circle.



    I REALLY DO NOT, want McQuaid to be in on the Chicago attack, I mean I really adore his and Annie's friendship, particularly, this week, while I was kinda annoyed at the last scene between them, I have loved their rapport so far!



    I was sad to see Roger's fate, I liked how he and Annie finally seemed to connect, that girl really is the 'kiss of death' LOL!



    I guess Roger wasn't as paranoid as everyone thought, if the last scene is any indication, I hope Annie & Auggie are able to piece together the mastermind behind Chicago!



    Only two episodes left this Summer I am so psyched to see how this chapter in Season 5 will end!moreless
