    Didn’t they already do something like this in Red Brick and Ivy?

    Okay, so I don’t watch this show, but how many people are NOT intrigued by Jane’s “power”?

  3. Emily says:

    I actually remember her from Lost.

  4. Holly says:

    I liked Zuleikha Robinson in Homeland and also thought she was good in HBO Rome. She was a big time baddie on that show. Unforgettable.

  5. Rob says:

    She will always be Yves Adele Harlow to me from “The Lone Gunmen”

    Good to have some new spoilers for the new year on my favorite show. I wonder if this has implications beyond this episode? Thanks, Megan, for the scoop! :)
