When President Luchenko is giving her speech, before Sheridan sits down at the start, he has nobody on his left or right. During her speech, there are two people - on his left, a grey haired man, and on his right, someone who looks just like Luchenko - same clothes and earrings and hairstyle - even though she is really at the podium talking. When he gets up to speak, the woman on his right is clearly gone, and Luchenko sits down in that place, where her "continuity double" had been sitting while she was speaking. The man on his left is either absent, or the camera angle makes him appear further away. See more »

End but not really
26 September 2017 | by wilvis-93963See all my reviews

This should have been the last episode.Almost everything that comes after this episode is just cause they wanted a 5 year run so desperately.I would have reconsidered.Did not like the change from Ivanova to Lochley.The main story-line seemed forced cause well it was not really ever concluded.The really last episode of this season even felt it was cause they wanted 22 episodes each season.I liked the episode but as i said after it was clear things were going to change in a bad way they should have called it quits.
