Hmm....I think that might be the best Flash Forward in a while (right after The Garden of Forking Paths).

I wouid give it a 'not bad', but still not enough to save the show. I am still really displeased with the way they are treating Janice being a Mole. I mean, C'mon the F on already. I admit that the switch of the Gius Balthar was pretty novel, but the problem with it comes more from how did 'They' find out to make the switch??? Did Janice/Vogel come out and say "Hey, I think me may have another mole, and we better swap Rainman with Mark???

And, In a 'hi-tech' mystery like this, what agent is going to let a guy keep on typing into a computer when they had sites on him? Wouldn't they have learned with the D.Gibbons/Utah debacle? Shoot him in the damn arm already... :cursing:

And Zoey (Besides being really, really, really annoying)... After what happened with the terriorist hot chick (Alda Hertzog??? Who came up with that name???) , why the hell would the FBI even allow her back in the building??? And especially un-escorted to sit there at Demetri's desk???? :S

And, if I have to hear Weddick's "On October 6th.. blah... blah... blahh" speech one more time, I am going to have my own version of a Flash Forward. (This one was a double whammy, because just as I was noticing that they changed the into... they burried it in the episode O.o )

There was more, but I think you get my point.

Absolutely agree. I mean Mark discovering her secret came totally out of the blue, no **** clue before that scene that Mark even knew there was another mole or something.

The episode itself wasn't bad but like I said a few times now, I'm glad when this is over and I hope they end it kind of satisfying.

I actually got to watch the episode last night, but it was all in caption because my wife and I were trying to get my 2 yr. old down to sleep.

After watching it, it ended up being a decent episode. I do have to say, though, that I'm really tired of the jumping around from US to Afghanistan, to wherever Simon is. It's all annoying more than anything else.

Also, why do they have to keep bringing in new characters like the "Big Boss" or whatever they called him? They should realize that they are about to be cancelled and they need to either bring everything to a quick close or kill everyone off. This episode would've been a perfect one to kill off Olivia, Lloyd, and Annoying Savonte Guy.

Oh, aren't we all just happy that everyone is accepting their fate? Let's see...Benford is accepting that Olivia is meant to be with Lloyd and he just wants her to be happy. Demetri is accepting that he's just gonna end up dying because Savonte told him it was supposed to be that way. Wait, didn't Demetri tell Janice that he wanted to be involved with the baby even though he accepted the fact that he's not gonna make it? Maybe he just wants to go out not being known as a deadbeat. Oh yeah, don't forget about Stark accepting the fact that he's gonna be with his daughter...and it happens.

But let's get down to the reality of the show. The producers have thrown so much at us that I really don't think that many of us care about any one storyline except for how the show is gonna end in a week or two. I just listed off three or four different storylines and left out many more like Simon's involvement and the immenent love triangle between Bryce, Nichole and Keiko. There's too much going on and that, along with the crappy acting and screenwriting, has ruined what really could've been an awesome show.

Sure, I'll keep watching this. But like some have said before, it's not for the entertainment, it's more because it's like watching a trainwreck waiting to happen. You want to look away, but you just can't. You have to see the shear carnage that's about to happen.
