Ho Ho Ho... you're going to Afghanistan. Not exactly a Christmas present to be happy about. Having said that, Cal must surely be happy about what he accomplished in last night's episode of Lie to Me.
Sent to a US Marines outpost in the middle of the desert near Kabul, Cal was tasked with uncovering the truth about a deep-cover US operative who got left for dead and had to join to Taliban to survive. Cal was able to get plenty of info from his subject about two missing Marines but we ended up learning far more about Dr. Lightman as a result of his methods.
We may not be getting that Lightman origins episode I've been hoping for, but this was at least another step in the right direction. Specialist Glenn Welsh (or Khalid, as his Taliban buddies had renamed him) refused to give up any truths until Cal spilled some of his own.
It led to some interesting revelations about Cal's stint with MI-6 intelligence in Bosnia. He did some things he wasn't proud of -- that much was apparent -- but Welsh wasn't able to get much more out of him beyond that. Again, I've said it before, but all these snippets of Cal's past (this new info; his history with Terry) just leaves me wanting even more back story.
