It Is What It Is
4 October 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I'm giving this a ten because of the levels of intrigue and sophistication. Jack is beyond belief, but we know that and accept that. Jack negotiates Kim's release (or so he thinks). He is given a cell phone and Palmer is instructed to call Drazen to negotiate an exchange of 200 million dollars. But things go awry. Jack agrees to give himself up in exchange for Kim but something takes place that makes it unlikely. But the part that threw me was a kind of something thrown in at the end so unexpected as to strain ouracceptance. Still I look forward to the final episode.
