This episode was slightly better than last week’s. My suspicions were confirmed that John Donovan’s father was behind the leak. I’m still bummed that there’s no Tony Almeida yet. Jimmy Smith was able to show a little more emotion in this episode, but still being underused. The stuff at the police station got resolved a little too quickly, but that’s what happens when you have a ton of stuff to cram into 12 episodes. It doesn’t seem like 24, but it’s still a decent show. Some of the stuff is predictable if you’re a fan of Spy shows or films. It’s very telegraphed, which is a bit annoying.

I did like the action and I think Corey Hawkins is doing a great job. The actor who plays Locke seems very uninterested in what he’s doing. Most of episode seems like filler until the terrorists show up. This has been slightly disappointing to say the least. I hope that it starts to pick up steam. I don’t know how this is all going to get resolved by episode 12. I have no idea what Amira and the Teacher are doing. The Isaac storyline seems to be frivolous. I’m just going to go straight to scoring and hope next week is better. This episode gets a 70%.
