    • Very good!

      10
      While obviously not as intriguing as the brilliant storyline that ran through the last few episodes, this episode was still very good and extremely enjoyable.



      I wonder if Eyal will ply a greater role in the series - they seem ot be building it up that way but who knows... I really nenjoyued the case with a lot of great events - especially the scene in the bank with the safety deposit box which was great.



      I would like to see more Auggie/Annie interactions too, since she just returned, so that would be nice next week! But all up, a great episode nontheless!

      . Sorry for my awful spelling! Am writing this in a real rush!moreless

      I like that this show has taken a darker turn but I have a bit of a problem believing that a spy who [SPOILER] had been shot in the chest and later captured & tortured in a Russian prison can so easily be let back into regular service and a regular life. It's going to take some real creativity to go back to typical episodes and believe that things haven't changed with Annie's psyche.moreless

      The scenes with Annie and Eyal on the run were good, but with him back in town and things back to normal at the CIA it was a little bit of a letdown. The episode was solid here, an intriguing situation, but still has not lived up to the hype and the bar set by the episodes with Annie on the run.
    • Hey Hey My My There's more to the picture than meets the eye....

      Great episode - had to watch it multiple times. Many hidden agendas. Eyal's discomfort with Rivka; Auggie's urgency to talk to Annie; MOSSAD's real mission; Joan and Seth and Arthur. Annie's push back with the CIA her (Simon) mission WAS to blur professional/personal life BECAUSE she's good at it. Now, Annie/Eyal get to rock and roll.
    • Like this show, but some things bug me

      7.5
      Really, I like this show, maybe even more because of Auggie then because of Annie. But the dynamic between them is great. And I think the story with Eyal looks promising.



      However there is one thing that bugs me. And if they don't handle that very soon (preferably by the next episode) I'm starting to loose my interest.



      I mean, as I said I like Auggie and Annie's connection. However, they needed to talk te eachother for a long time now. The, lets discuss that with a beer on the side talk. And I know they have missions and all, but the had plenty of time now to do that. It's been at least 4 if not 6 or more episodes since they brought it up.



      In this episode Annie decides to just leave the "party" without saying anything to Auggie, then leaves and rather stay with Eyal (and I have nothing against him). This has taken long enough now. Have the talk. It will improve their bound even further.moreless
