Pan Am has emerged from the dark clouds of the holiday season and reminded us why we missed it so much to begin with. “Secrets and Lies” picked up in the aftermath of Kate’s (Kelli Garner) botched London mission during which she killed a very bad man with her big mean gun. Thankfully Anderson is taking the fall, but Kate will have to face a polygraph test before she can kiss the spy life goodbye.
We fell effortlessly back into flight with Ted (Michael Mosley) unsure of his new sexless relationship with socialite Amanda while Laura (Margot Robbie) continues to keep her growing love for him a secret. A dinner with his overbearing father pretty much seals Ted’s affection for Amanda after she puts the old man in his place and before the credits rolled Ted was asking Laura’s help picking out engagement rings. At least she has her new photography hobby to keep her busy. And Teddy is just so CUTE!
Also having love troubles is Maggie (Christina Ricci) who can’t seem to decide if she can date sexy Congressman Rawlings even though they disagree politically. She expresses her rage in a scathing article about the Congressman and his politics for the Village Voice but her reporter friend (also sexy) doesn’t think it’s good enough to publish. Maggie digs a little deeper into Rawlings and finds out sexy always wins. Shame that her article may now get published and ruin all that.
The big story this week though was the budding romance of Dean (Mike Vogel) and Colette (Karine Vanasse). Things seem perfect between the couple who are on the verge of revealing their love to their coworkers when Dean’s ex Bridgette reappears from exile to reclaim her love. Colette, being the perfect swan she is, tells him he has to go to her and resolve his feelings before they can move on knowing that Bridgette and her undercover ways might lure him back. Dean doesn’t want any part of it until Bridgette reveals that she works for MI6, a big no-no, and suddenly he’s swallowing her face as they disappear into her hotel room. Now I hate Dean and the plane he flew in on. I hope Colette pours hot coffee in his lap.
There are three episodes left before Pan Am takes a break again so keep watching! Let’s keep this show alive!
