  • This episode sums up the Season 2 issues...

    The influx of Chuck people like Matt Miller turned Human Target season two from a James Bond-type action thriller, into... well, a Chuck-type romantic spy drama. Instead of Chuck becoming the newbie that eventually becomes a slomewhat proficient spy, we had Ilsa as the newbie who eventually becomes a somewhat proficient spy. Like Casey on Chuck, Guerrero went from a badass, to a guy with a kid so he had a tender moment and the audience could empathize with him. except we don't want to empathize with Guerrero. Winston is the Morgan fill-in, now providing romantic advice. And Ames is the wacky Buy More employees and occasional sister-figure.

    HT Season 2 never quite turned into Chuck, but it certainly became more, or less, than season 1.

    As for this episode, Jake Weber didn't have much to do and although his team was initially impressive, they quickly faded into incompetence, letting Chance and Guerrero easily get the drop on them. Having an "anti-agency" of specific CIA counterparts might have helped, like the 2LiveCrew Job episode of Leverage.

    Overall, this was a solid season 2 episode, but it didn't compare to the season 1 finale which told us everything about "Christopher Chance."
