Taken may finally be getting it together, right before the end.
The ODNI team, especially Bryan and Christina, got emotionally involved with a Mossad agent with a big problem in Taken Season 1 Episode 8.
Leah, the Mossad agent, was certainly an interesting character, one worth bringing back if Taken survives beyond this season, a very unlikely possibility.
Leah was a secret agent being robbed of her best weapon – her brain – by early-onset Alzheimer’s.
There were none-too-subtle hints being dropped through the first third of the episode, topped by having her Iranian asset ask her if she was feeling OK.
