I liked the way they were putting the pieces together. The dialogue between Harley and Amanda was good, I don't know who is the bitch of the two. Jason with so little information and a disastrous team is doing quite well even though it is logical that things will fail if the person in charge is a little retarded and does not give necessary information.
