I’m with you on that, since it seems established that the precious is junk. What would they do, just keep Jack up in the corner on a split screen for three or four episodes, staring at the floor? Makes me suspicious of Squarejaw, too-- “All hell’s breaking lose- we’ve really got to move. Shit, Jack, you didn’t shoot that heroin?”
They’re going a little overboard with the parallel plots, aren’t they? Salazar: “Are you saying I’m not good enough for your daughter?” Chase: “Are you saying I’m not good enough for your daughter?”
It kind of bugged me that Tony just told the team “Everyone, I need a total work-up of Kyle Cokerunner,” without mentioning the leads that they had, ie, he’s known to be a young kid with no criminal history. Seems like that would be helpful in narrowing the search. Straining at gnats, I guess.
It also bugged me that Wayne is a cookie-cutter Sherri replacement. “I only want what’s best for the presidency, I’m just practical about it instead of being a dreamy idealist like you.” It didn’t help that while I was mentally grumbling about the writers’ laziness in this regard, Wayne protests, (too much,) “I’m not trying to pull a Sherri, here.”
And I’m still pissed at the pointlessness of a huge organization relying on a troubled teen to courier their contaminated coke. Wouldn’t this, in a real-life situation, lead to a chain-of-infection that started about ten feet outside your door?
