Synopsis for episode 1:

Spoiler:
Annie poses as a potential recruit for smugglers in London. Elsewhere, Joan and Arthur must work with Henry Wilcox, a task that tests the chain of command.


Synopsis for episode 2:

Spoiler:
In the first-season finale, Annie and Ben work together on a mission to rescue an asset in Sri Lanka.


Gregory Itzin (24) guest stars tonight

Last week's episode was horrible IMO. Hopefully they make up for it and go out with a bang. It's been a pretty good show, but not without it's problems.

The guest star last week was so irritating, I was hoping they'd take him back to Iran and torture him.

I've enjoyed the show, though it's somewhat hit-or-miss. I hope next season they drop the "rookie agent" angle and just treat Annie as a regular spy. She's done enough fieldwork to prove herself.

Just a heads up--this two-part finale airs back-to-back tonight. Since part 1 airs earlier than the usual time-slot, I had to set my DVR to record it, even though I have a season pass on the series.

I've enjoyed this show from the start--I hope they keep things interesting tonight.

I watched hour 1 today. Compared to last week's train wreck, this was actually a pretty good episode. The mission was fun and there was a good sense of danger. Loved seeing Anna Chulumsky from My Girl as Annie's nerdy contact in London. She looked ridiculously cute, especially in the glasses.

I also enjoyed seeing Henry Wilcox and Arthur butt heads. I like Gregory Itzin in this show and hope he returns as a guest star again next season.

That's who that was! I've only also watched Part 1 and while I've liked the show overall, it's the little things that pull me out of it. Like when Annie bet the $1,000 on snake eyes and rolled the dice. There was another die on the table right where hers were rolled to. Last time I checked, you don't use a third die in craps...haha.

I dug both the eps and feel ashamed I didn't see the end scene reveal coming.

Does this get a winter/spring miniseason, or is it done until summer '11?

I think it's Summer 2011. USA already has programming to fill the gap.

You're betting the deuce to try to lose? Twice no less!? No, that's not obvious at all.

At least make it look somewhat realistic and bet the yo.

And I also noticed the third die and the goofy way the dice were being rolled.

Saw part 1; found it ridiculous of the claim that guys would not look at Anna Chulumsky.
The fake sister dovey eyed interaction continues to grind on me.

What was the "end reveal"? I don't remember anything surprising at the end for some reason. Just that Ben got shot.

Yeah, it was pretty predictable. I figured he was going to fall off the bldg and presumed dead though.

That Pres Logan is the CIA leak they've been searching for.
