Blowing up their premise during the Super Bowl show in the second season worked in the short-term with the search-for-Sloane and Francine storylines but hurt the show in the long-term.
It was the right idea, since the original premise had become repetitive and unbelievable; how could Sloane continue to trust Sydney as a top agent when she constantly "failed" in her missions? But the problem is, when you tear something down, you need something better to replace it with, and they didn't have that. They rushed into it and changed things too abruptly at network insistence, rather than taking the time to resolve it organically and work out a strong way to continue the series.
