"Power of Persuasion" left me breathless on several occasions, adding another consistently suspenseful Hostages canon.
Duncan had his work cut out for him this week. From the assassination attempt on his life to moving political pieces in his favor, it's no wonder Ellen managed to escape right under his nose.
Ellen's investigative work was definitely the highlight of the episode, if only because she proved that it was possible to escape Duncan's psychological grasp. Then again, it was truly only a function of the fact she's not implanted with a GPS... but that's a point worth returning to later.
