one strong episode.
25 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

One strong episode. Agent Beeman had to deal with the honey pot trap. Agent Beeman decided not to betray his country. A dream subliminally answered his question of what Nina really was. The Jennings barely survived the Navy Seal and a question is answered about the other agents' son. Why did he survive? I love how the The K G B wants the agents' children. The Jennings Phil and Liz will have a split on how to raise their children. A new sub-plot for next season! Well written and directed Echo has a mix of spy games with 80's nostalgia. I love the mix of the Golden Earring song with the episode action. A rock video/ Miami Vice cultural theme. Eight out of ten stars!
