And Now He Loves the Lie.
21 July 2019 | by dreamingescapistSee all my reviews

Family problems, family problems! Emily Silk wakes up from a coma, but she is not yet responsive. Her mother arrives in Berlin to take her back home. Baldwin gets herself romantically attached. Meanwhile, on the other side, Alpha Howard must get his hands dirty with some real spy work, when he, Emily and Ian discover the school of sleeper agents. Aldrich makes the connection between Quayle and the Mole. Two Howards meet the first time after switching sides, and they both have something to tell to each other.

'Love the Lie' closes some searches while opens a new ring of deceptions, and raises some other valid questions. Like, who is Howard Silk? This episode amps up the pace, and it seems like the story is about to get some conclusion (well, at least some of it). Also, I like that they are finally starting to grow Aldrich as a real character with a past.
