The title, I believe, is what we would like for our Annie to have: a wishful beginning of starting over and trying to get her life back on track. But this episode did not really give her that; instead it gave her more things to worry about. As she believes she is going home, she soon realizes that she is at Blue Bonnet Farm to discuss her dealing in Russia, polygraphs and Simon.
Swiftly her plans are changed and she is back in Langley in a nice bear hug from her BFF, Auggie. Yes, he still wants to have the long-awaited talk and beer with her, but after she is settled. Um yeah…good luck with that, especially once we see Eyal is there and we know there is a mission to handle.
Eyal and Auggie finally meet and I have to admit that I had a big grin throughout the entire scene! I think many of the fans have wanted these two to finally get together and the moment was fun as they joked with each other.
What I find hard to believe is that Annie isn’t back for 1 day and already they assign her to work with Eyal, the man who saved her arse, and they expect her to lie to him. Really? But we all know Annie plays by her own rules and tonight is no different. She works with Eyal to get the watch back and all the intel that is on it. But the big surprise of the night is when Eyal and his handler were talking in their native tongue and she said: Don’t lose sight of the larger role she plays. Then she asks if he is sleeping with Annie. Holy crap, what is Eyal up to? I am going to be so mad if we spent all this time learning all about Eyal and falling in love with him…and then the writers are going to make him a bad guy. The Twitter hashtag of the night was #EyalsSecret and I guess we will have to wait and see just what that secret is.
Arthur gives Annie the Medal of Merit, or as Annie calls it; the payoff. He tells her that Joan was quite distraught while she was gone. I am sure many of you were wondering if Joan was having an affair with the dude, but we soon learn she is in a support group for addicts. Poor Joan, I hope she gets straightened out real soon.
My heart went out to Annie when she went back home and couldn’t go inside. The memories of the shooting are much to fresh and Piper does a great job of giving us the impression that if she took another step closer to the house she would probably get sick and pass out. Thanks to Eyal, he offers her his apartment that he keeps for when he is in town. But while they enjoy dinner, Auggie shows up at Annie’s with the hope of having that conversation with her, only to be disappointed to find nobody home. I think this is the storyline that has most of the fans screaming at their televisions.
Do you think Joan is correct to worry that Annie’s relationship with Eyal will be like that of Simon? Will Auggie ever get that beer with Annie? When will Arthur find out about Joan? How much longer until we find out what Eyal is up to? Leave me your thoughts.Follow @TVKarenB
