Christopher Gorham's blind CIA operative Auggie deservedly not only got the spotlight in an outstanding episode flashing back to his tour of duty in Iraq — he also got the girl. And some girl she was: Lost's blindingly beautiful Rebecca Mader as Franka, a flight attendant who helped Auggie track down the terrorist who caused him to lose his sight.
Auggie and Franka planned another rendezvous in Barbados, so one can only hope we haven't seen the last of their romance. In the meantime, if anyone's planning a TV-movie about the NewsCorp scandal, Mader should be cast as Rebekah Brooks, the flame-haired British editrix who was arrested and testified before Parliament. She's a dead ringer!
