That article was from October 26th. It's already November 4th and this is the day they chose to cancel it. Our best bet will be if they pull a Drop Dead Diva on us or another network picks it up (this is the better option).

Great review! I agree we have to suspend our disbelief. I didn't get the prism thing at all. It was written and a prism created, thus it worked. Huh. Sounds like witchcraft!

I'm unsure if she was angry that he got away from her without her getting Haqqani or if she was upset he was killed (even though she was ready to do it herself). The poor kid was doomed not matter which way things went down.

The difference with Saul making the decision to kill Carrie is that he would know the press wouldn't make a big deal out of it.

So what did you think? Did you enjoy the historical references and the return of known baddies? I think in the UK it's almost imperative to maintain the sense of this series dating back 50 years. Villains returning is no different than The Doctor continuing to reboot. Ah well. Here's hoping for a walloping good finale!
