Episode 5 of 7
I think this show's gotten really good these last couple of episodes and this was the best one yet.

Great episode. I honestly thought they were going to find Amanda alive, so I was glad to see they had the guts to kill her off so unceremoniously.

Awesome episode. I almost teared up at the end. I questioned in the last thread whether they'd 'Michael Clayton' Amanda and I'm glad they did. Gets rid of her (always thought she had an annoying voice all the way back to Gilmore Girls) and deepens the mystery.
I'm also glad they explained Huck's backstory which gave us answers to his weird mood and personality.
This show is growing on me with every episode. I hope it comes back
I'm still not sold on Columbus Short yet. He's just too stilted with the numerous monologues. Like he's trying so hard to play it cool.

Great episode. Huck's torture scene was psychologically painful to watch but brilliantly put together. You get his backstory in a compact way and you understand what his actions are costing him mentally. That explains why Olivia was so hesitant to make her request. Well played.
What are the odds the VP or someone in her camp is the third party?
Plus renew this for next season.

So first we have a gay Republican Chief of Staff and now a Republican administration pushing for a Dream Act. Is this a Democrat's wishful GOP? :lol: And they didn't waste any time making the Veep out to be an evangelical zealot.
On top of that, I hope they are making the so-obvious evil First Lady out to be a smokescreen.
The plane disaster case played out way too fast. No way things move that quickly.
I did like the Secret Service bargaining at the end, even if it was obvious where he wanted to go. rotfl
I guess I'll be in the minority - this was the lamest episode so far.
