  • More 80's style A team drama.

    More 80's style, A team type drama, where Gabriel has to track down an old friend suspected of being an assassin.
  • Very interesting!

    This was a really good episode as things go international again. The last time they left the USA we goot a spectacular episode on Syria, which is probably the best one so far. This was quite good too, with a really interesting case that gets rather personal and unpredictable.



    Things were really interesting throughout and we had interesting guest characters which rounded off the story.



    The show is getting really good - I hope this continues!moreless
  • Decent episode, the show's improving.

    7.0
    I thought the episode was 'okay', I like how the protagonists are more buddy-buddy and the ending was a satisfactory conclusion.

    However I wasn't a fan of how this Lieutenant just happens to be Gabriel's "best friend" or how Gabriel kept tapping keys on the laptop of what seemed to be a TV version of a Windows blue screen when he didn't even seem to engage his chip skills. Also, Cyber Command could communicate with him and connect him to a satellite, yet he or they couldn't communicate with his partner to warn her about the situation? Sorry, you can't excuse your way out of that plot hole.

    I wish they'd get some adults writing for this show...moreless
  • Sawyers pulls it up

    8.0
    The show has its ups and downs, some episodes were good and some were lame, but only Holloway in "Sawyer" in avatar seems consistent , He might be Gabriel on the show but he still reminds you of Sawyer. The guy is natural, He can easily walk you through a 45 minute episode even with a poor script. "Delta Force" though wasn't a bad one but seemed highly impractical, though never knew Bolivians being so insecure about the Americans always thought it was only the middle eastmoreless
  • Really enjoyed this ep!

    I must point out first and foremost that unless you (the viewer) abandon real life reality - you will find flaws (many of them) will this show. I am NOT saying that as a criticism or as a bad thing - I think it's the only way to enjoy this show. If you can accept what you're seeing as the shows' reality and leave yours out of the picture - it makes it 100% enjoyable. It is what it is and exists for the show.

    I think this episode was my favorite so far. I was completely into it and liked the twists. Like all other shows, either Gabriel and Riley are going to get together, or one of them will get with someone else to cause angst. I despise when that happens -- I'd rather they just evolve and end up together and not make it a big deal!

    • Tetazoo: Without trust, you and I have nothing.
      Lillian: We've shared a lot of things, Jeff. Trust has never been one of them.

    • Norris: I'd shake your hand, but, uh, you shot me.
      Riley: Yeah, well, I'd shake your hand, but I'd rather just shoot you again.
      Norris: Nice meeting you, too.

    • Riley: Gabriel, look. (referring to Norris) I know he's your friend.
      Gabriel: Was my friend.
      Riley: What happened between you two?
      Gabriel: He used to say I was his conscience.
      Riley: That doesn't sound so bad.
      Gabriel: He didn't want a conscience.

    • Riley: So, how does a... special-forces soldier like Norris, that kind of résumé, become a hired mercenary for a crazed despot in South America?
      Gabriel: Combat's addictive. No other rush like it. A lot of guys start jonesing the minute they leave the battlefield.
      Riley: But to become an assassin? Were there any warning signs with Norris? Psychological spikes, morally questionable behavior?
      Gabriel: Morally questionable behavior. Yeah. It's called war.
