The Sincerest Form of Flattery
20 July 2019 | by dreamingescapistSee all my reviews

After the mole with high-level clearance inside the Agency is revealed we go back in time and witness how the other side schools their super spies.

'The Sincerest Form of Flattery' is the first real origin story of a side character where we learn the whole character arc with one episode. It also gives the twist of turning one of the episodic characters into the main player, and an integral part of the whole story. Intense cat and mouse game that simultaneously takes place in the past and the present. It also gives many answers to the viewers while opening new problems and possibilities for the characters.

It is amazing how 'Counterpart' continues to use all the tropes of the spy genre but manages to do this somewhat refreshing way.
