NSA Director Vance (Daryl Edwards) basically threatened Jared this week. Vance is very interested in what Michaela’s doing, and will be even moreso now that she’s solved another case through fortuitous coincidence. And so, he quite plainly tells Jared that he expects him to spy on his former fiancee for the NSA.
“You’ll be serving your country, and saving your job,” he said menacingly. And yet, at the end of the episode, we see Jared tear Vance’s card up. This was even after he tried to get information out of Michaela and totally had us going for a minute that he was gonna turn snake on her.
But now that he’s not playing ball, how far is Vance willing to go to try and get what he wants? Will he try and ruin Jared’s career? Will he find some other way to try and threaten him into compliance? And will he, perhaps, approach other people in Michaela’s and Ben’s lives for surveillance.
This also lends credence to our theory that Michaela and Ben are somehow special among all of the other passengers. Or perhaps it is Cal who is truly special and they only gained their heightened connection to the voices/visions/et al because of their proximity to him on the plane.
