    It must be the twists and turns (be they good or bad) that keep people tuning in and this episode had them in spades. Personally, I find the show to be so ridiculous that it's fun. For example, I never would have guessed that the female cop was a plant (since it's beyond ludicrous and unbelievable) but they had the guts or lack sense to go for it.

    I predicted it the moment she "decided" to accompany the young FBI agent. The twists and turns really aren't if they are that predictable - for me at least. I find it insulting and I simply refuse to allow my entertainment to treat me this way....

    I figured she was going along so she could die heroically saving him.

    I still believe Mike is in league with them. (That's the ONLY reason I'm hanging around; to see if I'm right). That cop would have known he was wearing a vest and aimed for his head if she wanted to kill him. Instead, she shoots him and makes it look like he's as susceptible to the group as any of the other FBI guys.

    I have been on the verge of dropping the show and was watching Monday's episode earlier this evening. About 45 minutes into the last episode when the local female cop shoots Mike Weston... I swore for just a moment. Hit stop on the remote. Deleted the episode. Canceled my scheduled recordings on the DVR. Done. - Walter.

    This was the first episode I felt was not worse than the previous one. Not that there weren't plenty of irritating moments (Louise, another of the vast army of Joe followers, steps out of nowhere to slice the witness with a razor, the lawyer/warden turn Copperfield in front of our eyes to make Joe disappear).

    That was point at which I deleted the episode from my DVR and the series from my playlist. That plus the little kid, not once, but twice, wandering into the locked room with the woman in the cage and getting yelled at for it by the crazy garage guy. I mean, I know garage guy's a little touched in the head, but did he never think of, oh, I don't know, putting a better lock on the door when he knew he had company coming?
