So Janis is the mole. Really, Flashforward writers? Really? I say, really? Worst "twist" ever.

Lol, it's definitely totally out of the blue. I'm not sure what to think of it yet.

Overall the episode was okay, the story around Bryce and Keiko is a bit... :unsure:

Janice being a mole did seem a bit random, but I thought the episode was pretty good.

I loved this episode. It's one of the best ones FF has ever delieverd and I really liked that twist of Janis, even though I am not sure if this was planned from the beggining or not. However, I think it was way cooler this way. I was thinking during the whole episode that the problem with the mole storyline is that it doesn't really makes you feel surprised or envolved in it if it's someone you've never heard of. But I just couldn't picture anyone we knew doing something like that. But now we know. I really liked it. I also liked the Bryce-Keiko storyline, even though I was seeing the Bryce-Nicole thing coming for some episodes now. As for the Olivia thing, I don't know if I believe the guy was really hired by Mark, it seemed too convenient that he didn't answer the phone. Anyway, good job on this episode.

I didn't see that coming. I thought Stanford would turn out to be the mole. So I wonder if a baby is really what Janice saw in her future.

Yeah, I didn't see the twist coming... but honestly that's because it doesn't really make sense. It was a good episode in terms of how bad the first half of the season was... the last half you can tell they really picked it up to save it from being canceled.

IGN's review of the ep accurately captured how I felt about the twist

One of my biggest TV pet peeves is when a shocking twist comes along that totally erases and destroys the meaning and sentiment behind scenes you've already seen and emotionally invested in. What about Janis' trip with Simon to Canada? She was really one of the people behind his sister's kidnapping? Baloney. What about the couple of heart-to-hearts she's had with Demetri in the past few episodes? What about all the times that we saw her, away from the Bureau, acting genuine? She was behind that D.C. attack? You can't just have forward momentum on a show – you need to be able to preserve what we've already seen and experienced. And look at that. I'm already ranting.
