pan am oct23 abc 'Pan Am': The road to nowhereSo much dialogue, so little action. Another week of “Pan Am” comes and goes and there’s very little to report.

[Spoiler alert isn’t really the right term, as not much happened.]

Kate’s (Kelli Garner) spy missions are getting slightly more complex, but just barely. She’s gone from being an international courier to being an international waitress, as this week’s mission is to get the fingerprints of a Soviet agent. To do so, she needs to befriend a Yugoslavian diplomat played by Goran Visnjic to get her in the door of a high-class casino. Perhaps the most curious part is we find Kate doesn’t even get paid for her spy activity. You get what you pay for.

In another marginally-compelling story, Dean (Mike Vogel) begins dating a lovely woman named Ginny (Erin Cummings) whom he meets on the flight. But when we find out she’s the mistress of a Pan Am Vice President, Dean wonders whether this might be a problem for his career. If the previews are any indication, the answer is a definite maybe.

Laura (Margot Robbie) seeks to close the chapter on her almost wedding by returning the engagement ring to her former fiancee. But there’s a bit of a wrinkle that Ted (Michael Mosley) helps her through.

The take-off on this flight seems to be permanently delayed.
