I finally caught up to the latest episode of this show and wow, these flashbacks are getting tedious. They made sense in the beginning when Alex was trying to figure out which one of her classmates was the terrorist, but now there's a bunch of new classmates doing dumb stuff that takes away from the present story line, which is moving oh so sloooooow. Alex loses Simon (who didn't have to go to the drop point with her in the first place) and replaces him with Caleb (who's a double-agent for Ryan, I'm guessing). And she got Raina in trouble cuz why not? She's already gone through Nathalie whom she got exploded and Hannah whom she got suspended. That's it. I can see the wheels spinning in the mud of the plot.
ITA about Iris though. You don't blow the cover of an undercover agent! Isn't that FBI 101? And when Will got beat down, it was Shelby who rushed over to him. Where was his so-called friend Iris? It's no wonder she didn't get security clearance.
I'm tempted to drop this show, but the Haas soapy family drama, especially with Marcia Cross & Mark Pellegrino playing the parents, keeps me entertained. Plus, Simon is so darn likable. I'm still hoping for him to get together with Raina... when all the Alex craziness is over. Then again, if either one is the terrorist, my ship is sunk. Oh wells.
