  • Not what i expected for a finale.

    8.0
    i found it to be a great episode, but not what i was expecting for a season finale. Jonas was on a mission in london when he was forced to go against his good friend. While Bob got a promotion, and assisted his wife in recueing another military wife who tried commiting suicide while on radio with Kim. Mr. Grey fell in love with his dead best friends girlfriend Annie, who is now out of a job due to a fire at the bar. Overall a great episode, just wasnt wasnt i expected in a season finale, especially compared to last year.moreless
  • good episode...

    8.0
    This episode had a lot of character development for Jonas. Which would he choose: friend or country? He ended up choosing country and got pissed when his friend was killed because of a stupid mistake. The story was interesting, but it got slow at times. The wife of his friend was annoying in a way. It was interesting to see that she was engaged to him in the past. Ryan's old wife is starting to piss me off. She is so annoying and this episode just made her more annoying. Oh well. Overall, a good episode with a good story, slow at times, and some good character developments.moreless
  • This one not as great as it could have been.

    I don't know if it was because of the writer's strike as it looked like this episode was poorly written. To me it lacked excitement. Nice little conflict with Jonas' past and how Col. Ryan's Bi^$# wife tried to blackmail him. I hope they collectively try to screw that woman over in future episodes. The underlying moral of this episode was how far is too far. When being in a covert unit like they are, how much can you take to insure that you and you family will be taken care of financially if something happens like during the season split. There seems to be a thin line of what can be allowed before you become criminal. As the MI5 agent dealt with explaining to Jonas his reasoning, he put Jonas on the spot and asked him what he has taken. Not really too sure the specifics of what the unit has taken from prior missions, but I say there might be an episode in the future where a conflict arises that has the members second guess themselves. Hope this writer strike ends soon so I can get back to watching some exciting TV.moreless
  • Nice to see Jonas past a bit!

    8.9
    It is nice to see Jonas past before Molly. As a British intelligence agent is accused of treason. And the feds want Jonas to bring him down as he is friends with the agent. Plus, he and the agent's wife had a little love affair. While both are trying to bury the past. Meanwhile, Kim does her best to save a suicidal woman on her military talk show. Kim really has a heart for people and shows her beyond being Bob's wife. Grey and Mack go on a double date but it shows that Grey still has feelings for Annie. It shows Ryan's ex-wife of a you know what. Who wants to tell on Jonas and the agent's wife. Great acting!moreless
  • I'll never say I didn't like an episode of the unit, but this one was down there...

    9.0
    But, I loved it. I have been waiting for a good bob + kim scene for a while, and I finally got it! It was funny to see how happy bob was when he got the promotion. It was just so cute how bob came down to the radio station all mad at kim nad then realized something was wrong and helped her out using his influential skills. It was so cool to see the two of them searching the graveyard for the woman. Thats what the unit needs, more storylines like that. Where the men and women work together to solve a REAL problem. Jonas. I thought coisidence of his former fiance and col. ryan's ex wife just happening to end up in London with him was just too coincidencial for me. But hey, it's t.v. I love how the writers made me think that jonas was just going to let his friend get away, then suprising me by catching him. I always get fooled by that.

    Grey. What was wrong with him gettting together with whoever he wants to. I think they wil be fine together. he needs a wife. Over all great episoboe can't wait for more!moreless

    • Title

      The title is a reference to the Side-Angle-Side Congruence Theorem of geometry, which states that, given two triangles, if two sides and the angle between them in one triangle are equal in value to their corresponding parts in the other triangle, then both triangles are congruent and all other sides and angles are equal in value as well.
