Advertisements Well, while several weaknesses continue to plague the show, it's starting to get some legs. The CIA subplot is getting some legs, and they look like they might be addressing my "what does Kate actually get out of this?" question. The Kate and Niko subplot looks like it might go on for several episodes as well, setting up some interesting tensions in the crew (Maggie pissed off at Kate for stealing Niko, and both Maggie and Collette know about the pilot shagging the Pan Am exec's wife). That said, it continues to sink in the ratings. I'd already put it as being on the bubble.
