Best episode this season!
28 April 2013 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

The Oath is the best episode this season. The first question for the series is : will the K G B spies be caught in a sting operation or is the military colonel real? Will the F B I agent be played by his Russian lover? The double lives part of the show was accentuated by one spy playing a F B I husband while his fake wife plays the spy's sister. The marriage oath, fake family is all a sham for the KGB spies, just like his second fake family. Do they know who they really are? Are they just brainwashed fanatics? Can they return to a normal life after their operation? The Oath will divulge that the series is based on lies, counter intelligence, mis-information
