It was predictable that Mike was working for Jericho but other than that the episode was good. Don't know if he was on previously but loved the fact that Dexter's father was in it. :thumbsup:

After the last two episodes were kinda good this one was back to the roots. In other words: It was ****.

Only good thing about it was Aaron's plot, very nice birthday present. :sneaky:
And Dem's gf really got on my nerves. :cursing:

Cannot agree enough, this was really poor. I had hoped it would not revert back to crummy so quickly. Not only predictable, but even the setup for the next few are predictable as well.

Let's see... Janice & Simon, now going to Somalia together... Right around time she desparately needs to concieve???

Humm... wonder whats gonna happen there??? (Think bad 70's porno music playing right now)

And, so this uber-general of this dark, black ops super army has no security at his house!!!! C'mon people!!!!

WTF :censored:

And, after Tracy is taken, Mike is just gonna hang around for a few hours. And then say to Aaron, "Sure, I will have a nosh with you"

And, Wow... OMG, the gun is missing?!?!?! I didn't see that coming [SAR], Very [SARC] :thumbsdown:

And, YOU NEED ELECTRICITY TO HAVE A DOOR BELL RING!!!!

I didnt think it was THAT bad. Quite a bit went on. I'm not a big fan of Aaron/Tracy's story but the character development was alright through the episode. But Simon should have been in it more if possible, he is easily the most interesting character, as last week proved.

Sry dude, but this pretty much tares it for me, This was one of the sloppiest ones yet. It's like they forgot everything they learned from 1.11 and 1.12

And, As an electrician for twenty years, I will not even begin to go into wtf was going on in that electrical cabinet that Aaron went in to before 'killing' the power to the house...

I said it on other threads, I really want this show to go the distance, but if they keep pulling clunkers like this, it ain't gonna make it...

I mean, here's Aaron, his daughter has told him how many times that 'they' are out to get her, and he roles her over that quickly? Couldn't he at least have said nothing fo the time being, and asked her first? (Kinda like "Hey huney, I realize your hiding from the world, but did you happen to take time out to crank call your OLD ARMY BUDDY?????) I mean this girl had pretended to be dead to everyone for two years, I would think I would find the coincidence a little off putting. And not to mention the super creepy way that Mike asked in the first place...

I didn't really think it was that bad of an episode. I've seen worse. And better. But I have to agree, Aaron telling Mike Tracy was alive was weak. He seemed a little smarter than that to me. I don't know about all the electrical stuff, but I'm finding it a little surprising the guy didn't have security either. And if Jericho has such a problem with her, why didn't they just kill her? Why go to all the bother to send her back to the war zone?
I did see a little chemistry going on between Janice and Simon last week but I also half-expected her and Demitri to get drunk and hit the sheets the way that conversation was going. It would be a little more interesting if Demitri slept with her in some "we might die let's have sex" scene. Not plausible. But more interesting down the line. And, frankly I can't stand his gf after this episode.
Did anyone else think it was strange that if "the formula" was so important why didn't Mark have Lloyd try and remember it and write it down?

a very centric episode on Dimitri. And if the cause of his death was in fact the obstinacy of his girlfriend trying to avoid it?

^^ I was most annoyed by those two things, I think the episode was just too obvious, Mike working for Jericho, gun's missing it was all a little bit too easy for me. And it's been freaking 12 weeks, finally someone remarks that they should ask that stupid kid what she saw exactely!

I didn't like it. I mean, the scenes with Mark and Lloyd were pretty cool, I liked the fact that Mark was able to put his personal problems with him aside for a while for the sake of the investigation. And I didn't dislike Dem and Zoey story contrary to most of you. But Aaron's story... I jus felt it was way too unnecessary and unrealistic. All of it. First of all I don't like the caracter, so that makes me suspect. But the whole thing was so far-fetched that it was actually hard to see it. Also, I felt like the flashbacks did nothing for the episode. It was perfectly possible for him to tell that he has been in prison without us actually have seen it. And the scenes with him crying after loosing his daughter were too much the old same thing. I don't know, I can't connect with that storyline so I have a problem everytime an episode is too focused around it.

Good points, IMHO it just feels like the show runners are trying to layer too much on top of itself. When they should be working on developing at least one endearing character. Right know I don't realy care about any of them...

And, A shout-out to HannaK :thumbsup:,

I am glad that someone else feels the same way about the kid. And that's a great example of what I am talking about.. not even the little kid is endearing in this show...
