One step behind
As the team is directed to the girls location a group of men enters the café where they come up to Verina stating to be a friend of her father’s and while placing a hand on her neck that injects her with something to knock her out. Another man does the same thing to Esmah and they grab Verina’s laptop and leave with her before Dalton, Jaz and McG arrive. Upon their arrival Esmah stumbles out of the café and into McG’s arms while Jaz and Dalton go inside to check for Verina. McG lets them know that Esmah has a small puncture on the side of her neck where she was obviously drugged and seeing as they now have no leads other than the customers saying that some men came and took the girl they are out of options.
Esmah comes to but is unable to give them any usable information. Meanwhile the men that took Verina take her because they want her to hack into another submarine where she states that she’s sure the backdoor has been closed up, but they are insistent and if she wants Esmah to continue to be safe she will do it. So she does and she succeeds in taking another submarine offline in the South China Sea.
This is going on all while Dalton is back at the Quonset hut demanding answers from Hoffman as to where they were taking her once he grabbed her and he said he didn’t know anyone else’ part in case he was caught. Hoffman tries to continue to ruffle feathers especially with Dalton and remarking to Jaz if her boyfriend’s temper is always this short. Alex just prods on about knowing a thing about crossing lines which are just more mind games as Dalton puts it. Sadly for all of you out there that wanted more romance between Dalton and Jaz, (NO!!! I won’t combine their names, LOL!!!) this is as close as you get to it in this episode. Dalton is getting tired of Hoffman though and his mouth and is ready to go when Hoffman would love to get inside Dalton’s mind. Unfortunately as we are already drawing to the end of this episode we are only left instead with the fact that Patricia has now arrived at the air base at Incirlik as Preach awaits outside the Quonset hut to escort her in. How do we end this episode?
Patricia: Hello Alex
Hoffman: Hello P
So those little questions I had earlier about actions coming back to haunt, well did you all catch it, as I’ve said Hoffman prodding our team was getting to me especially by the time he got to Amir it just cemented things a bit more. When he was talking to Preach how did he know all that background information on him about him being a family man and being a short timer, heck I’ve watched all the episodes several times and yes I’ve been sick for quite some time but unless I’m mistaken I don’t remember getting some of that information, when did I miss the mission briefing?
Then let’s just talk about Hoffman himself, you know about that little thing he said about Patricia getting basically more than just a slap on the wrist for what she did in Tehran, so there is that juicy morsel as well as the fact that she was put in charge of his execution. So either you learn everything you need to know about someone and those around them because Hoffman is there to take out Patricia or he’s there to wipe out them all. So as we all head into next Monday night’s Close To Home Part 2 and the Season 1 Finale what questions do you have on your mind? I’ve shared some of mine above with you as well as a few of my thoughts, please share yours with us, good or bad, all are welcomed and appreciated. Like I always tell the group of people I work with – if we all thought the same the world would be a boring place and we would never learn anything.
Don’t forget to tune into @So_Many_Shows at 11/10c to talk about the Season 1 Finale after The Brave airs Monday night on NBC at 10/9c
