I imagine that will play out at some point. From the FBI to the wife there seems to be a large amount of shame in regards to what their relationship was.

And since this show clearly demonstrates a 'nobody is safe' philosophy is it that ridiculous to think he kills the kid under suspicion of parentage? For a network show...this one really seems to be intent on shaking up things.

so I still can't decide, is Debra Parker legit or part of the cult. She lied to Raines about being able to see Carroll to get info, and seemed pretty upset about not being able to see through Maggie. Yet there's still that smirk she gives when seeing and talking to Carroll. Something about "cults are my specialty" doesn't seem right, and seemingly anyone on this show can be a bad guy..

OOOOH this show is starting to frustrate me. Sooooo they adopt the cable model and pare down the episode count to allow for more condensed storytelling and less filler. Well, nice try...but that only works if the content of your show cannot be sketched onto a cocktail napkin. So much potential squandered. What happened to Hardy's clear substance abuse problems? And the long wait for Claire to finally end back up with Joe...for ****s sake...give her something to do in the meantime. Once again...Hardy is the worst FBI agent. Kills the GPS/cell phone sim card...but doesn't realize she has been tagged with some Batman like tracking device. Where in the Christ do the JOEsephes get all the damned money for all their equipment and housing? This show has had a few good moments, but network is network...and thin writing shows through. And Weston being absent for two episodes hasn't helped. He was doing a lot of heavy lifting although he suffered from the all too familiar 'magic computer can do everything' syndrome too. What a waste...of my time...Kevin Bacon/James Purefoy...and a decent idea. OH, and the last minute addition of 'Molly' was handled soooo poorly. She is mentioned by David Zayas' character in a 'oh, let's establish story thru recitation instead of writing' heavy guest shot, and...all of a sudden...she is a JOEsephe. Wow...that had NO emotional impact whatsoever no matter how much you do the 'let's play some heavy music over the last 4 minutes while we introduce a stinger to the plot' moment. Ugh...frustrating.
