Missing Review: Suspect Zero
Becca has received a lot of leeway considering she's not a part of the CIA anymore. At the end of last week's episode, "A Busy Solitude," she and Giancarlo were finally taken into custody for all of the illegal things they have been doing in order to get Michael back on Missing.
In "A Measure of a Man," one of the head honchos at the CIA decided it was time to put a stop to this. I'm going to fully admit that for some reason I cannot for the life of me recall her name. If any of you do, feel free to toss it out in the comments. For now, I'll be referring to her as CIA lady. My apologies.
Okay, so apparently CIA lady, who I find irritating for some reason, has been doing a lot of research on Becca and her past cases. She thinks Becca not only knows who has her son, but is in on it. There is something darker at work, something more than just a missing kid from the states. There is Suspect Zero. And there is a very strong possibility that the Winstone family is connected to Suspect Zero.
Whether or not Becca had any knowledge of this, it appears that she was involved in more than she realized. Operation Songbird was supposed to be about returning a kid from his abusive father to his mother. Upon arrival, the kid pulled Paul's gun out of his pants and shot his mother in cold blood before running off and jumping into a van. Pictures show that this kid is the same sniper who favors bleach blonde locks and his been following Becca and Michael since she got to Europe.
By the way, did anyone else find is suspicious when the kid was asking Paul so much about his gun in the bathroom? I took notice of that, but initially chalked it up to childlike curiosity.
The CIA speculation is that Becca and Paul were in on the whole thing and they knew the kid was going to kill his mother and they helped facilitate this. They are unfairly using Becca's foster home upbringing as an excuse for why she might have been on the wrong side of things. Becca is obviously stunned as she realizes the truth of all of this. The father that ordered his kid to shoot the mother was Victor Azimoff, the gangster that Paul had been dealing with.
Victor Azimoff is part of the European crime ring that is run by Suspect Zero. The only reason the CIA doesn't think Azimoff is Suspect Zero is because he is too public. It would need to be someone more private, something who has been off the grid, someone like... Paul Winstone.
The lines are really blurred between good and bad at this point. Last week, Miller was on Becca's side and suddenly he thinks she could be aiding this crime ring. Then we have Violet who set up Becca's escape and murdered CIA lady. What's up with that?
At this point we know Becca can trust Giancarlo and maybe Martin. I saw some Twitter speculation that people think maybe Martin is Suspect Zero. It's an interesting theory, but I still feel like there are too many loose wires.
What do you all think? And where does Michael fit into the scheme of things? Hit the comments and don't forget to check out this week's Missing quotes!
