I almost don’t want to write this. In past chapters, I’ve tried to be as optimistic as possible about where things were heading; and what “super spy” Shaw was up to. But so far, all my theories have been utterly wrong. And Shaw seems to be nothing more than a creepy slug trying to take advantage of a hurting woman.
We have been assured there are shocking twists coming. I sure hope so. Shaw’s involvement is now half over (4, out of an 8 episode contract); and I think we are more in the dark than ever. The best guess I’ve seen is that he is driven by an obsession for revenge. He will use Chuck to get it. Its seems likely he’s just using Sarah also, although we may get some twist like she reminds him of his dead wife. If that’s true, I think Shaw being driven further over the edge by seeing Chuck and Sarah together may come into play.
At this point, I don’t see Shaw as a traitor or double agent (but maybe a triple agent; naw, way too involved for this crew). I’m leaning towards doomed hero. A doomed hero who likes to hit on emotionally fragile women, but still.
I really don’t have much more to say at this time. If we learn anything interesting, there may be another chapter; or if anyone has anything interesting to add, I’m always listening.
