I thought it was good, if a little slow and pretty bleak.

Much better this episode IMO, actually feels like it's going somewhere

Plus no Dana gooseberry fool

Not a good episode with all the Dana rubbish but saved by the twist at the end. Unclear whether this was the plan from the start or less likely when Sol visited her at the hospital.

That was one of the show's worst episodes saved only by a decent final few minutes. The Dana stuff was unbearable this week. Hopefully the plot will heat up now after the revelation at the end 'cos it's been a really strawberry floating boring season so far. Not nearly enough Quinn and no Brody again this week, nor next week judging by the preview.

I knew this week's episode would be a tough one for you Chalky. :lol:

As a defender of Dana this week's was too much for me. But apart from that, zero complaints. Brody doesn't need to be in the show every week.

He doesn't need to be but at least his story is interesting and entertaining. The alternative is more Dana gooseberry fool. I have a feeling Quinn will be sent to Caracas and bump into him.

I never do this but I'm getting tempted to actually fast-forward through the Dana plots.

Is it just me or did the Dana plot in this episode make absolutely no sense?

I thought it seemed her Mum accepted her reasons for wanting to be with psycho boy and it was a new start with the family. Then she goes batshit crazy, gets drunk at a graveyard, sells the car and puts her mother's name down as the contact on her phone?

I can't believe how far this has fallen. My girlfriend and I watched the whole of the first season in two sittings as it was so gripping. Whereas I feel no urgency at all to watch the new episodes this season as it is maintaining no sense of tension or excitement at all.

If this was a new show, no one would be watching.

The ending was interesting , the rest was just big meh.

Dana has turned this into a twilight stuff.

Going to watch this week's episode for the twist, but may wait to finish the season off once it's over. It's pretty horrible right now.

Fast-forwarding through Dana does make the episode better and because the plot is so disconnected from everything else you don't lose anything.

I thought everyone fast forwarded through her stuff. I just want her to top her self.

Surprisingly good episode this week. More Quinn is always good. And some actual spy/thriller stuff. Yet more Dana garbage though but at least it's finally over I hope.

So true. :lol:

This season has gone so slowly but it finally feels like its getting somewhere.

Glad all the Dana stuff seems to be at an end. We can hope

I'm hoping they had to get all the Dana stuff out of the way early due to

There's still that selfie out there though.

The crying face of Dana had me in stitches . She looked hilarious .
