In a word: wow. Answers are what we wanted and "Answers" are what we finally got on this week's dynamite installment of Missing.
The episode started with the usual BS struggle between the CIA accusing Becca of something while she was desperately just trying to find Michael.
Last week, Violet strangely set up Becca's escape and then stabbed Head CIA Lady Whose Named I've Been Informed of But I Just Don't Care Enough to Really Use. I'm still not really clear about what Violet is up to here aside from trying to screw over Becca. She seemed to know who Maksim was when she pointed him in Becca's direction but as we saw at the end of the episode, Maksim was never trying to hurt Becca.
I have to say that this episode literally had me on the edge of my seat, yelling at the TV. First of all, there was no way that Becca wasn't going to notice Giancarlo was wired. I'm so glad that was immediately settled. Moving on. Then we finally got Paul in the flesh and not a flashback! When Becca was running through the cemetery I was actually yelling at the TV "It's Paul!" Their fighting and talking sort of reminded me of Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
So Paul was working undercover against Azimoff and his cover was blown. He was trading the stock certificates to get Michael back. The struggle in the church went down. Before I continue, I wanna flash over to what's happening with Michael.
Michael gets Oksana to a hospital in the nick of time. At first I was wondering why he didn't immediately alert the American embassy the second he knew Oksana was okay but then realized he was smart and he already did that. My bad. Martin offered to retrieve him and this was the second time I was suspicious of him in the episode. The first was when he so casually admitted something sounded suspiciously like Becca in the beginning. Isn't he supposed to be on her side?
I mentioned last week that there was speculation that Martin could be Suspect Zero and lo and behold, when Maksim got the phone call on Azimoff's phone, Becca put it together and confirmed it. Her mentor, the man who walked her down the aisle, trained her in the CIA, the Godfather to her son, was running the biggest crime ring in Europe and was behind her son's kidnapping. So as I said in the beginning... wow.
