What sort of organization could make Lady Macbeth kill not only her own husband, but her own self as well? I'm hoping the Russians are the big bad. I'm so tired of Muslim terrorists in these storylines, and 24 is doing it again. I found it interesting that MacLeish seemed tormented by what the US government did, and that's what compelled him to turn. Reminds me a little of Brody in Homeland. Hopefully Lady MacLeish knew her children would be cared for before turning them into orphans. The show just became very interesting to me. The big bads were only a spoke in the wheel. I'm still watching the show, but I have to say that a show about someone in the Executive Branch being a Russian puppet may be a bit too on the nose, and where it would fall down is also where Scandal, Madame Secretary, heck... even the current 24 show do... that none of their wacky conspiracy plots are HALF as crazy as what's going on in real life now with that office. Every conspiracy plot out there pales in comparison to a situation where an outright foreign puppet is close to overtly operating, and yet still in power.That resonates weird with ALL of these shows now. They're all operating under a scenario where they seem tame, and sometimes even MORE contrived (but now for the opposite reasons from before--where they seemed contrived because they're so outrageous--and now they seem contrived because unlike in real life, scandals seem to have actual long term consequences that they no longer seem to in the actual real world). 6 Link to comment
