Dumb episode. Why is it that in these "horrible deadly pandemic virus" stories there's always a convenient cure that works instantly?

Not to mention that this is the second time that this so-called FBI agent had a very bad person at bay with her gun on him, and didn't pull the trigger, didn't watch her back, basically failed in every respect.

In the storyline, she couldn't have shot him due to the virus being dropped and both of them being exposed. But yeah, a little silly.

Seems like Liz doesn't like following protocol

Hmmm, I find myself fast forwarding at times now, that is not a good sign. I think I will give it another couple episodes but the formula is wearing thin on me.

Why did Lizzie get infected? She was exposed to the Mossad woman who had just been infected and shouldn't have been in the contagious stage yet.

Because it's TV. Probably because the infected guy sprayed the plague into the air, not just the other agent's mouth. It was airborne.

Especially when we now know the CDC isn't even close to being competent.

yes, really a track record of sheer incompetence.

Quit failing to flip the switch

If you think they're competent after what's happened in the last 6 weeks or so with regards to Ebola in the US I don't what to tell you.

It wasn't the CDC that was incompetent so much as the Texas hospital that let the Ebola patient go, and then let a nurse who'd been treating him hop on a cruise ship. (Turns out she didn't have Ebola anyway, by the way.)

And, even despite that, there's been no sign of Ebola taking root in this country.

So, yeah, calling the CDC incompetent is a bit misinformed.

This show lost it a few weeks ago when Red sat on a bench with Berlin, then did nothing after he got his wife back. If there was the least bit of consistency, Berlin would have been hit with a hellfire missle as soon as his wife was safe. You don't mess with Red, unless the writers get lazy.

This reminds me of the lengths he went to to find out Tom's "brother's" real identity, but never tried to find out Tom's real identity.

Yes it has definitely lost a step from the first season. The Tom vs . Liz conspiracy was key as was compelling villains. It's going to get hard to maintain the momentum this season but I must say, at least we don't have to deal with the wig

I could use other, not so polite words for it. It's all part of the "government can't do anything right" narrative that's been pushed so hard for the last 30 years. This whole Ebola thing was handled quite competently and has amounted to nothing over here, just as the CDC predicted.

Meanwhile, thousands die from the flu every year and gun violence kills tens of thousands and nobody bats an eye. Just sayin'...

Find your way back to actual episode discussion and away from political commentary immediately. Some of you seem to think you're somewhere other than AVS Forum.
