If you loved him, truly, you have to love the lie.
20 July 2019 | by dreamingescapistSee all my reviews

'Act Like You've Been Here Before', the big climax, the first big reveal of the first season. Both Howards continue their investigations, and they are starting to get somewhere. But it is Aldrich, who makes some groundbreaking discovery under the orders of Quayle. Or does he?

The sixth episode of the season one is the classical slow-burning spy thriller where little by little the secrets are revealed taking us closer to the truth. After the magnificent pilot episode, 'Act Like You've Been Here Before' is the second truly great episode of the season one, in the sense of thrills and story development. It can only get better from here on.

I like how the quote of Howard (If you loved him, truly, you have to love the lie. - He says that to the wife of Heinrich) foreshadows the upcoming events. Also, we now start to understand why the Prime Howard is kind of jerk to everyone.
