"For your recommended daily allowance of SDI"
25 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

(Look up "Brilliant Pebbles" on Wikipedia.)

I can't be the only viewer who screamed in frustration at the end of that episode. Nina is smart, Martha is dumb, and Caspar Weinberger's maid doesn't want to burn in hell. Stan demonstrates how he is too close to the trees to see the forest of Elizabeths on the projector screen.

Will Nina be sent home to be executed, or will she get a chance to take revenge on Stan for Vlad? Will Martha see the sketch of Phillip and recognise her new husband? Is another agency, maybe defense intelligence, behind the SDI microfilm?

The dominos are falling, and our antiheroes the Jennings are at the end of the row. Now that they're finally looking in the same relationship direction, just like we always wanted, they're lined up as targets of circumstance and coincidence.

One episode left. How can the writers tie up all the plot lines and still leave enough for another season?

I can't wait to find out!
