I really liked this episode.

I am really liking Tom, he and jamie are so cute!

I felt so sad for Becca, when the guy she likes brought another girl to her party. Either i must have missed it or something, but how did she get out of the thing with the cops?

jaime's boss got her out of it, because he made a comment about how hard it was to get a underage out of a drinking and driving.

i love tom and jaime together, they have great chemistry. they have the whole sometimes i hate you thing going on. i hope that he comes back for another episode.

i felt bad for becca too, but it was good to see her get over it so quickly.

I really enjoyed this episode. The mission to Paris was lots of fun to watch - especially all the action scenes

Tom and Jaime are great together, Jordan Bridges definitely adds something to the show.

Bledsoe bailing Becca out was another good moment and he didn't tell Jaime that he had to bail her out - I wonder if she'll ever learn about it.

Fast national ratings:

Definately a cool episode. Jamie and Tom are perfect along side each other.

Real cool of Becca to make that bath for Jamie. She may not really know what's going on but she knows enough that her sister is just doing what she can so they can earn a descent living.

The episode was love, the ring, Paris and all. Jordan Bridges played some creep on DC, didn't he? But I love him as Tom.

This episode was alright. Not amazing. I definitely enjoyed last weeks more. I still think its too early for Jaime to be falling for a guy. As an audience member, I feel that I dont really know Jaime well enough. They shouldve kept the romance for later on in the season and instead focus on developing Jaime and the bad guys. Like, where is Sarah Corvus? Anthony Anthros? That stitch-arm guy? I want tension and angst! Look at 1x03. That was an awesome episode!

I enjoyed this episode, dont get me wrong. But i was looking forward to a more edgier show. This episode was too fluffy for my liking. I like romance, but i didnt enjoy it this episode.

Parts I did enjoy were Jonas and Becca's scenes. I didnt expect to enjoy them, but I surprisingly found them quite good and at least they added to the story. Becca isnt acting like a spoilt brat anymore and understands that Jaime is trying to do the best she can by Becca. The ending scene was definitely very heartfelt.

Good to see more Bionic-ness, especially in the eye. But when Jaime hits someone, shouldnt their bones break??? They shouldnt get up like theyve been punched by a normal person. That's my pet peeve. And am I missing something during the running sequences? Are we the audience supposed to assume Jaime's running really fast? Even though, it looks like shes running at normal speed. I just found that part quite odd.

Overall, i give this episode a 7/10. I really hope BW doesnt get cancelled because I think this show has sooooo much potential to be amazing. I really hope the writers start getting their act together. The show feels sporadic and disconnected. Stick to a theme and storyline and go for it. It feels like the show is waddling along. A show like this needs to get on track straight away if it wants to succeed.

You have some great points there.

You are right, she should have trust issues and all, but I'm glad she gets a 'break' in a way. I hate waiting 3 seasons for a kiss if you couldn't say.

ahaha well i dont think i could wait 3 seasons for a kiss. maybe a couple more episodes down the line this season. I just really dont like the romance-angle the writers are going with. The ratings have only been dropping over there in the states as well as here in Australia. That's gotta say something, right?

Here's to me hoping the storyline with Tom takes a backseat for a while and Sarah Corvus and Daddy Anthros comes back into the fold soon.

I dont mean to sound bitter, but i really hate seeing such a potentially amazing show be flushed away because of bad writing. Now, im no writer. Im just a plain ole viewer, but I think we have the right to expect something amazing from the likes of Hollywood writers.

Oh well. I'll keep tuning in until if/when NBC give this show the axe -- which i sincerely hope they dont! :O

I tend to agree, I love this show but I didn't care for the last episode as much and I definitely don't like the romance angle. Maybe it's partly that I don't find the CIA guy very interesting (he's nice enough, just not interesting) but it isn't working for me.

I'm still very interested in Jaimie, and in seeing her save the world.

I like Becca, but her subplots have been too consistent... she really needs something new.

You've got a good point there. There's still a lot of things to discover about Jaime and I'd love to learn more about her past before we actually see her falling for a guy as well .

Agreed. Not that I don't enjoy the show - I do, but when I'm watching Bionic Woman I expect a fast paced show with lots of action in the first place and that has been missing so far.

Personally, I think that Jonas could be kinda like a mentor for Becca. Jaime is trying her best, but Becca might need an 'outsider' to talk to, someone who's not so emotional attached - if I'm making sense here.

You know, you took the words right out of my mouth. She has bionic powers and if she hits someone we should at least see some effect. Right now the people she fights are always coming back a second time - I know she isn't fully trained yet, but that also means she can't handle her power that well right? That being said, her hits should have some effects on her opponents .

Can't add anything to this, you're summed it up very well I know I enjoy the show, but still there's something missing - the overall theme, I'm still not sure where they wanna go with it.

Absolutely - there's so much potential. The last few episodes actually gave me hope that they're on the right way now, I hope the next few episodes live up to that.

Hey, my recording sort of short-changed me... Missed the ending, can someone fill me in? Jaime was talking to Becca, shortly after commenting that the towel was warm and all...

Jaime apologized for assuming Becca would do something bad while she was away, but she worries so much while she's away and all. Then they hug and Becca tells her she knows what Jaime's giving up for her and for them. Jaime tells her she's exactly where we wants to be right now and Becca tells her to take a bath, which she does.

That's basically it I think
