  • Explosive episode!

    This was a great ending to the first part of the season, with huge developments, massive changes in the storyline, and the lives of several important characters either being lost or hanging in the balance at the end of the episode.

    Loved the role Hayley played in the episode, and I loved the way Annie assisted McQuaid throughout the episode, leading to some important discoveries along the way.

    The bombing was really intense, and the ending with Caitlyn, Alex and Annie in that garage was impressive!

    Lookgin forward to what happens next - the worst s yet to come, seemingly!moreless

    A good mid-season finale for the show. The cliffhanger felt unoriginal though, so I am hoping this show finds a way to get us excited about that.

    Good episode overall though.
  • lt Was Obvious Arthur Was The Target ln The Car Bombing, But Why?

    Okay this episode was suspenseful with allegiances constantly being questioned and tested, while the truth was slowly revealed. But really, with the tracker that Caitlin put in Ryan's computer, she knew him better than anyone, did she really think he wouldn't check for a tracking device. Even if he trusted her, it was likely he'd check to make sure the CIA or FBI didn't bug the device. Or, Caitlin could have been so arrogant and self assured that her plan would work that she never considered Ryan would doubt her or the computer. I didn't think it was possible for Annie to be more determined to find those behind the Chicago bombing than she already was, she wants Belenko and nothing will stop her. By leaving the United States, he just made it easier for her to pursue him without constraints. Even though, Belenko and Caitlin were behind the Chicago bombing, the motive is still unknown and who were they targeting in the motorcade? There's no specific evidence that points to an answer, Belenko told someone on the phone the their plans for Istanbul were still on. With everything that happened in the episode, it still was Fantastic.moreless
  • A Frustratingly Awesome Summer Finale!

    OK, while I thoroughly enjoyed this 'summer' Finale I gotta admit that I am more intrigued and as irradiated as ever LOL!

    On one hand Annie weeded out the traitor, but on the other hand the 'mastermind' behind Chicago wasn't really revealed, I just hope that the show has a very brilliant plan for the 'Fall' Season.

    Despite my misgivings with this finale I gotta admit that it was one of the best mid-season finales since Season 3's Glass Spider! The tension was racketed up so high I was literally on the edge of my seat the entire time LOL!

    McQuaid & Annie's partnership both professional and personal was pretty awesome to watch,, despite my not wanting them to get any closer I have to admit that they as a couple are super cute! What happened to Ryan was so UNFAIR UGH!! I HATED it!

    In contrast to Ryan and Annie's newfound closeness I despised Auggie & Annie's rift, I really want these two 'crazy kids' to talk about their relationship, this is the most distant we've seen them since Season 3's 'Fall' Season. It's even more upsetting to me because I see both of their points of view, I understood why Annie made the decisions she made and vice versa with Auggie.

    Barber's interactions with both Annie & Hayley and Auggie in the DPD was a huge comic relief that was desperately needed in this heart- wrenchingly tension filled finale!

    I cannot wait for the Fall to see how the rest of this 5th Season plays out!

    BRING IT ON!moreless
