Is Gina Bellman pregnant again? Some of the clothing they had her wear was ... suspicious.

When these episodes were filmed she was just months after giving birth, so I think she just hadn't lost the baby weight yet.

Haven't seen the second ep yet, but loved Elliott's over the top John-Woo/Transporter style gun fight in the warehouse in the first. "I said I didn't like guns, I never said I didn't know how to use one." BLAM! How Quigley.

I've still got a few minutes left 'til the end of the 2nd episode but am surprised we haven't seen any pretzel payoff yet? And Gina's definitely preggers, that's a baby bump for sure (that white suit dress was like waving a flag) - baby weight would still be in her face and a little more 'all over'.

Eliot's Equilibrium moment was pretty badass.

I love how Elliot just walks out and stands there for a second before shooting at everyone. All I could think of is "Why aren't these guys shooting him right now?"

Decent episodes. I'm glad that whole arc is over with though and I hope we never see what's her name ever again.

This show (in it's first season) was about the art of the con. They have stepped so far out of reality it's hard to watch now.

The scene with Sophie explaining the psychology of a handshake was fantastic, they need to focus more on that, and not leaving so many plot holes. The shootout with Elliot was ok, but there were 30 better ways to get out of that situation without an over the top shootout.

I did enjoy Damien yelling "Who are you people!!" and Nate never answered him.

Thank god Hustle is still on in the UK!!!

I hope the deaf sounding Italian chick is gone for good.

What a disappointing ending to the "Moreau is a super-badass" build up. There wasn't a single moment in either episode that depicted him as even a competent criminal. The first ep was just a mess, I'm not even going to touch it. The second one just tacked him on to a slightly better than average for the season con job. The plot was a swiss cheese as the rest of the season, but at least it had a continuity that many of the recent shows have lacked.

Oh, and the Elliot shootout would have been much, much better with out the ridiculous part where he just steps out and stands there for half a minute. It wasn't badass, it was just stupid.
