Len: "I don't have to win. I just have to survive."
When last we left off, Dobson & Martin/Len, in Houston, were trying to get away from a shootout at the garage where he had found Kyle Dobson, a man whom he thought might tell him what in hell was going on with his identity & past memories. Unfortunately Dobson was hit by a bullet and so Martin/Len had to go back to being Martin the FBI agent in order to help this guy & to try to get some answers out of him. They dodged pursuit and he questioned Dobson the whole way to the hospital but didn't get any solid answers.
In the hospital some more undercover people enter the fray, agents of this new player The Verax Corporation, for whom Dobson works. They tell him that Martin's prying is going to blow their operation. Dobson agrees but what can he do while injured? They try to thwart Martin but he fights them off, retrieves Dobson & they go on the road again, told by his boss Gates that the Austin TX FBI office would be safe.
But... the stolen car breaks down! Now Martin is forced to hole up in an abandoned house in the middle of some oil wells & hope that help comes before the Verax squad catches them up. Martin prepares for the siege & hopes it's enough, between badgering Dobson further with questions. He's still hurt & gives reluctant, dodgy answers. Verax attacks and Martin deals with it, but despite his best effort he loses Dobson and his answers in the fight. Another dead end.
Back at the Los Angeles DCO ranch, all kinds of hotfootin' going on. DCO now has Tony Rice & his investigation into McCombs' murder, which through Evans' death is now connected to a high level secret 2004 operation in Iraq called Raining Fire that Martin also discovered. Tony ends up sent with Crystal to Houston to fetch Martin. Maggie tells Gates about helping Martin. Gates also meets with Sonya, and now it looks like they are in cahoots with whoever is trying to cover up who Martin really is. Sonofabitch!On twitter the Legends writers said this episode was shot like a classic western; my reply was that it was more like a spaghetti western, but I meant that in a good way as some of those films are my faves! Len Barlow is definitely my fave Martin legend so far, Sean played this to the hilt & I imagine it was great fun for him. Was Martin working for Verax too? Glad to see more of Tony Rice included, still hoping he gets a promotion to DCO. And another new player to Martin's mystery even as he loses another! Looks like a brand new legend for Martin next week. Keep it coming but #DONTKILLSEANBEAN!!
