I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of people who use DVR's missed part of this first episode. It didn't start at the advertised time of 10:30 EST. Rather, it started about halfway through the NFC Championship post-game show, 'The OT', which ran from 10:00 - 10:30. The only reason I caught the beginning was I had 'The OT' recorded in case the football game ran over (which they usually do, so I always record the next show). My carrier is TWC, so I guess there's a possibility it was only our EPG's that were messed up.
If this happened to you, you missed some background on Hardy and his niece, how outwardly normal his life is now, and most of the subway attack. Can't believe FOX let that happen.
