True Lies - Bitter Sweethearts

"Bitter Sweethearts" is another episode of True Lies where every facet of the show hammers away the exact same point with the subtlety of a sledgehammer. This episode is notable for returning one of the actors from the movie which inspired the series, albeit in a different role, when a retired agents of Omega are targeted. All the stories play off the struggles of working with someone you have a relationship asking the question about whether or not love can survive Omega. 

This of course includes Harry (Steve Howey) and Helen (Ginger Gonzaga) and whether their marriage can survive, Luther (Mike O’Gorman) and Maria (Erica Hernandez) whose chemistry has been off recently, Gib (Omar Benson Miller) and the co-worker who has just broken up with him, and our guest-stars in former lovers turned enemies Arnie (Tom Arnold) and Sharon (Kate Vernon). Of note, the episode also creates a super-secret enemy for Omega sector, that knows all their secrets which our disfunctional team working together manage to take out in an afternoon.
