While Nina takes a flight, the Sanders family takes a fight. Ellen, with Brian by her side, tells Duncan that she will not kill the president. While Duncan then threatens her with the consequences, they both know that he's not gonna kill her kids. So they decide to make a deal: Ellen will get the president's bone marrow if Duncan protects her kids from Sandrine and Archer. Whereas Duncan and Kramer are not looking for violent ways and more blood on their hands, that doesn't count for Sandrine and Archer. They call everybody
Not for a moment did I think that Jake really died. It was clearly all a set-up from the beginning. And like I said, Ellen was way too calm when they shot her son. I can't believe Archer and Sandrine believed it to be real, because Ellen's reaction certainly did not convince me.
Various side plots in the episode:
-Archer discovers Sandrine's betrayal when he finds the car bombs hidden inside (Sandrine must have removed them when she felt the other's suspicions).
-Blair discovers Vanessa's betrayal after meeting the vice president.
-Ellen asks the First Lady to smuggle some of the president's blood out after the surgery (telling her that she believes her husband might have more chance to get Alzheimer's).
What did you think of this episode? Were you surprised Jake didn't really die? Are you looking forward to the two-hour conclusion in two weeks? Be sure to come back later as I will do a preview of the season (series) finale and tell you my expectations.
