Another week, another episode without Henry dying

This episode was actually not as horrible as I feared it would be! Though I realized later their portrayal of hackers was pretty much on par with Hackers, so maybe I set the standards a little too low.

I also didn't believe that they'd actually reveal anything this episode - there are shows that would just have Henry's secret get out during what appears to be a standard case-of-the-week episode, but Forever is definitely not one of them. To the point where I was angry at the promos for even teasing it. Still, there were a couple cute moments in here, and his first wife showing up again was something I admit I hadn't thought about at all.

I'm glad they gave Henry a computer-geek resource. I figured they'd have to introduce some old forger friend someday to explain how he's managed to stay undetected, but this works too.

I didn't see the promos for this episode, so, I wasn't expecting any reveal. At the rate they're going, I think we'll have to hope for additional seasons for Jo to find out. (But, I find I don't really mind the teases, they've got enough character building going on to keep me happy.)

I kinda liked that Henry was actually at risk for discovery--just not in the usual way for him. I'd be curious to see if Liz comes back later under the circumstances.
