Was it another ground-breaking step forward as The Disir was a few weeks back? No, but there were still a few worthwhile surprises.

One thing’s for sure- right from the off, the culmination of the ‘Puppet Queen’ arc allowed for a stronger and more cohesive narrative. We moved back to the central arc of this season, »
