I’m not even sure where to begin this week. There was so much that happened. I guess I’ll start with the Initiative. I knew they were very good but I didn’t know they were one step ahead of Nolan and Aiden. I did have a feeling that they would take Padma when the exchange was happening. Since when have the Initiative agreed to an exchange?
So the Initiative have a very dangerous program and two people they are probably going to kill. I mean what reason do they have to keep Padma and her father around anymore.
I think that was the Falcon in the car authenticating the program. I’m worried that the Initiative have the Falcon on their side now and he’s better than Nolan. Aiden and Emily are very good at what they do, but they seem to be out matched by the Initiative. What’s the next move?
Eli wasn’t the problem that I thought he could be. It felt something like out of Emily’s playbook when Eli got up on stage and told the truth about Mrs. Haywood. Usually Emily would use someone else to out someone, but Eli did it himself. Either way he took out someone from Emily’s past and found out where her father’s letters were. The letters may be destroyed, funny enough by Emily herself, but at least she found out something from the letters. Victoria has another son. Why doesn’t this surprise me?
Poor Daniel, he thinks that the Initiative has targeted Emily, but in reality it’s just his mother trying to scare him and break his connection with Emily. I know I shouldn’t find this funny, but I do, I really do. Only Victoria would unnecessarily scare her own son.
Jack is getting in on the game, well in and so is Declan. That was so smooth Declan steeling Kenny’s son’s phone. I think Connor Paolo had plenty of practice scheming on Gossip Girl as Eric, but this is nothing like Blair and her minors dealt with on the Upper East Side. Declan and Jack are in way over there heads. Emily has tried so hard to keep them out of it, but they’ve been sucked in anyways.
