Did You Know?


Halfway through the episode, after Ryan (Kevin Bacon) discovers the manuscript, there is a stand off between Ryan and Mike (Shawn Ashmore) when Ryan wants to proceed alone. Mike insists he is coming, and Ryan holds him off at gunpoint, finally firing a warning shot. After the shot is fired, the slide on the gun stays locked back, signaling that the last shot has been fired and the gun is now empty. Ryan continues to brandish the empty gun, and Mike continues to react to the 'empty' threat. See more »

1.15 ***1/2 Is There Really Finality Here?
29 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A good episode depicting the need for a continuation of this next year? Where is Emma? Are dental charts and DNA definitive for Joe's fate? Only, another season of this very grueling and eerie story can tell us more.

When Ryan finally meets up with Joe, he is able to pick him apart, and despite his so called brilliance, Joe falls for when Ryan refers to him as a pathetic person, as he was about to gouge out Clare's eyes.

Debra's fate is a cruel one, and as we could predict, there is vigilante justice shown on the part of Ryan. The latter takes matters into his own hands when he strands a fellow agent to complete his objective.

Looking forward to next season.
