    Pretty good episode. I didn't expect it to be an easy deal to wipe out Edward. Paula was expendable so she had to go. Still Edward/Henry is slipping. We'll see if can get a hold of this. It's funny that Henry hates Edward, yet it's Henry who keeps on messing up stuff for Edward.

    My fave part was when Jack(the son) was doing all the tae kwon do stuff. The guy who plays him was really good at it...and he's really cute lol

    i have question about this episode..
    if "termination" only means destroying the agent side of someone, how come the fake fbi agent was about to actually kill Henry?

    I think it's because Edward is a higher priority agent with more people out to kill him and the fact that Henry can't seem to keep his mouth shut about anything comprising security and so forth.With Paula/Ellen this doesnt seem to be an issue so she was easier to reprogram with less risks involved..

    Each week the 'plot thickens'. Just when you think you know who's who - the game changes. This was a really good ep. Can't figure out why more people aren't watching. It's become one of my favorites.

    Cause Edward/Henry are broke and they can't erase him. They tried in the first episode. They can't make him wakr up and go to sleep at will and when they tried to erase him it didn't work. So they are just trying to keep him alive.

    Fun episode of the few we have left..... I like were they were going with Henry's son and how Edward would become part of his life on or off purpose no matter what. The action was good and who'd a thought a positive depiction of American spy's. No murder just poof your memory is gone and your joe blow. Real funny that line about waking up next to a floozie nice.

    I am confused about this "wiping" or terminating the agent. Doesn't the chip in their brain actually give them the memories of their normal life? As in the case of Henry, he was trying to remember anything from before he was married. So if they disabled the chip wouldn't he just become Edward all the time, notHenry?
