This episode is more about Auggie, about his back-story; his past life, his current mission, and the reason for his "walk of shame" in the previous episode - which turns out to be Liza Hearn, the journalist with her sights set on the CIA.

Which means there is a whole lot less of my fave heroine in this one. Piper Perabo didn't exactly have a few afternoons off, but maybe a bit of a breather.

The show is so damn good that Christopher Gorham, who I think failed in POPULAR, is even a star in my eyes. Auggie is a very likable character, and I don't often mention good male performances, so...

Liane Belaban, as Auggie's former Russian girlfriend, with the anarchic outlook, really won me over, though. I even saw a whole lot of early Julia Roberts in her.

The suspenseful train sequence (you know the whole time something's about to happen) brought to mind another spy movie, THE SPY WHO LOVED ME. I'll just bet at least someone on the set thought about that one. Maybe all?
