Okay, JJAbrams has always managed to keep the show really good. I thought that taking Sd-6 and the alliance out would mess everything up, but it didn't. Obviously, he put some thought before this episode. However, I really hope this doesn't turn into some sci-fi with the cia trying to figure out everything about rambaldi. I hope everything in the show stays reasonably possible.. with a few exceptions for rambaldi. And its kind of weird that Allison makes the mistake about Francie at such a ... ripe time... kind of too unrealistic... but maybe she was under pressure.
