The software used in the "facial identity scan" was first developed by casinos, and is now used by every government on the planet, and cannot be fooled. See more »


When Jonathan pounds on the vault window the sound and his voice are heard, muffled. Since the air has been evacuated the sound could not travel inside it. Further, when the door opens the loose paper on the floor is undisturbed by what should be air rushing in to fill the vacuum. See more »

Even better than the pilot
1 May 2018 | by luislastSee all my reviews

An excellent episode! A caper entry worthy of the original Mission Impossible series. You really have to pay attention, with all the twists and turns, false moves within feints, deception within deception. Since there was no recap or any kind of explanation of what we would be seeing, I was so confused at the beginning that I thought I had missed an intermediate episode somewhere. My only objections is that a) I find it difficult to swallow that the "Mystery Woman," or Addison Link, as she is mostly called in this episode, was such a psycho when she was an adolescent, that she held a near-lethal grudge for twenty years; and b) that Jordan could keep the phone calls from Cameron completely secret from everyone for the entirety of events (after all, Cameron only told him not to tell anyone that he was calling, not to keep it a secret forever).

A couple of points I'd like to bring up, however, since IMDB eliminated the comment forum (now if only they would get rid of those stupid User Lists, like "250 Unknown Beautiful Actresses," etc.): 1. The French guy gets a call from a French-speaking woman warning him about the police Why does he believe her? Does he recognize the voice? Who is that supposed to be? Unless Addison infiltrated his organization sometime before, there are no answers for these questions. Not that it is impossible, but they owe us an explanation for this. 2. I think Addison has her own twin! You don't always see her with the singular identifying single brown colored right eye. In fact, at the very end, if you look carefully, you will notice that a) the younger version of her has two identically colored (blue) eyes; eye color does not change as one ages; b) The last shot of her, looking into the mirror, shows her with two blue eyes, AND ABOUT TO INSERT A CONTACT LENS into her right eye; and, finally, c) In the "flashback" part of the episode, the Lance Bauer character (co-creator of the game), tells Kay Daniels that he was "just talking" to Addison, yet we see that she has apparently only just arrived, having been with the kidnapped Cameron all day. Maybe she was part of her own show once, also a secret, like Jonathan?
