I'm definitely in the final straight with the current story. And I'm really pleased with how the final 2 episodes are shaping up.
I was a bit thrown by the Elvis impersonator appearing in the election campaign, and not as a fringe candidate either. I had planned the election into the run of the story - I could have dropped the "Election Special" into February, March or April - but I hadn't expected the King... Anyhow, I've decided to embrace the "real" Elvis and shamelessly use his song in the next episode. It was so much better than my original choice.
The Organisation looks set to enjoy a kind of half life for at least the next 6 months, so I do have some grace until I am jettisoned from the State bureaucracy. So this should allow me to carry on in my intended direction of travel as the chill wind of austerity whistles through the Agency.
And then, I hope, I should have an angle on where we go next.
