Ugh, why didn't they just kill blondie off? At the very least it would give the make-up crew a break from trying to cover up her acne for HD. Clearly it just isn't possible.
Anyway, there are some elements that work on this show, but way too many that miss the mark. The XO, the wife, the arms dealer woman who wants the helmet cam, the evil black dude... just terrible. I think you guys got it right, see what kind of endgame is on offer, now that we know they don't get to drag it out.
