nice camera work
Mr Pickles. ;D
Ohh, Jacob Starkey is played by the guy who played Ben. He cleans up good.
Phew, Jeffrey Donovan/Michael's finally brushed his hair back. Looks a lot better.
More contacts from the military days. More touching on the trauma of war and the lingering effects in peacetime. I'm not always a fan of PSAs but I really like that the show is dealing with this issue since we've got so many returning veterans who are not getting the care that they need.
ENIC. extremist nutbag in charge.
OMG, Jacob is the worst liar ever.
Another chin joke. *snerk*
Tying everything back to Michael's dad, who never got the help that he needed. Yep.

5.11 Better Halves
I love how Fi always overpacks.
Michael's relationship impairments rear their ugly heads.
This whole dance scene was hilarious. Gun? Smart phone!
Hmm. what is going on with Michael? This is more than just obsession with spy games or relationship impairments. He's subconsciously trying to sabotage his relationship with Fiona. Ah. Is he afraid he's going to get caught and trying to scare off Fi so she'll be less hurt?
OMG, it's Charisma Carpenter!!!
Mmm, sauna room fight.
Aww...nothing like a gunfight to solve a few relationship problems.
Oy, caught by Pearce when he was just about to meet the real killer!

5.12 Dead to Rights
Oh, OK. the blue car is Fi's. I've been wondering that.
Love Sam's back seat driving during the car chase
Tavian lets Michael off the hook...and then commits suicide. Interesting.
I like that Pearce is one adversary that doesn't become friends with Michael.
Michael's put down roots.
Larry: Unfriendly Ghost.
Anson: Useful kidnappee.
Ah, a psychiatrist. I'd be happy for Michael, except for the fact that Larry was the one who brought him.
That's fascinating, Michael. Feel free to keep me informed about your feelings.
Yep, Anson's up to no good. Huh.
Is Larry recording this conversation? Trying to get Michael on record admitting guilt? He could already potentially manipulate the video footage.
I want you to choose. You're either a civilian or you're an operator. And until you choose, you're just pathetic. Hmm...
Fi takes matters into her own hands. OK, that image of the exploding building is a little too much like the twin towers and Oklahoma City for me A second bomb? Was this a set up and that was the goal all along?
Trying to make sense of things.
Ah ha!! Anson was behind the whole thing. Leverage.
Anson is the man behind the curtain!!!!
Well, if nothing else. This justifies Michael's paranoia.
Pearce partaking in the yogurt.
Using burned spies to carry out the missions that legitimate agencies wouldn't touch.
OMG, he was Madeleine's therapist?! But wait, can we really believe that? This guy's manipulated everything else. Hmm.
Also, are we sure that Larry is really dead this time?

5.16 depth perception
Great scenes between Madelaine and Michael in this episode. Michael is so hurt when she slaps him. Hurt more than all the times he's taken a punch in his line of work, hurt more probably than being hit by his dad as a kid.
And interesting how the relationship between Michael and Anson is developing. We see where Anson's blind spots are.
More info about Daddy! And yeah, the only way Michael is getting out of this debacle is finally facing his Daddy issues.
And...what is up with Anson's forehead and eyebrows? Botox gone bad? Whether that's the actor or a make up job, it really helps make him look freaky.
Leto II: We're about to go through the crucible, but we'll come out the other side. We always arise from our own ashes. Everything returns later in its... changed form.

5.18 fail safe
Poor Michael. As much as he thinks he still wants it, he's clearly no longer CIA material.
And in the end, Fi does the right thing and turns herself in, as she should have done right after the incident. Lots of melodrama between Michael and Fiona, a little annoying but still somewhat compelling. Kind of like a reverse Donnie Brasco.
I wonder what blond chick's story is, how anson got his claws into her.
