The conclusion of this episode begins with agent Beeman reporting to headquarters that there is no important information regarding the Soviets in the assassination attempt. The Jennings’ are comfortably at home, watching the media portray frightening images surrounding the crisis. Elizabeth and Phillip stop by the Beeman household to see how they “made it through the day.” The Jennings’ are able to play the part of concerned Americans as they drill Beeman for information. While Beeman assuages their “fears”, he also mentions that if the Soviets were responsible, it would have triggered World War III.
I’m sensing a new plot line about to begin as the Beemans argue about their personal relationship. Beeman’s wife feels neglected and alone while Agent Beeman plays dumb until he finally admits that he may be falling out of love.
I have to say that although the overall subject matter of this episode was supposed to be exciting, the episode itself wasn’t. This episode was more rooted in role play and what lies underneath. There wasn’t much movement or development involved and it didn’t really leave me on the edge of my seat. Maybe the next episode will hold more promise.
