A look at last week’s episode: http://www.examiner.com/article/hostages-1x2-invisible-leash-recap?cid=d...
Summary: Duncan threatens Ellen so she will convince the president to keep her as his surgeon.
Ellen is really show some gumption as she takes a chance to learn more about Duncan. She knows that he’s got a daughter, but nothing past that. She also learns that Duncan is in the FBI. So it was worth the risk
It looks like Kramer might become a problem for Duncan in the future. He’s already shown weakness with the dog and the pills. Now, he wanted to defend Jake. We did find out why Duncan is so trusting of Kramer, which does throw a screwball in everything. I think that Kramer does have a heart and doesn’t want to hurt them.
Sandrine on the other hand shows a bad side to her. She seems to only care about herself and money. I wonder if her selfishness or anger towards Duncan will cause problems in the future. I think she’s going to become a problem for everyone because she gives Archer and Kramer a hard time. I wonder how long Duncan will keep up with it.
There is a lot of twists with this show. This family is obviously not one that is going to just back down. They are going to fight back and it’s going to be interesting to see what happens when they fail (because no doubt the first attempt will be a failure since we are only 3 shows in)
