Rebirth (#2.8)
17 June 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The story of the man from Rwanda was pretty interesting. I didn't have any negative feelings towards the man, like I wouldn't to someone in real life who was in that situation. He wasn't a killer, he was someone who did nothing to stop it and as Diana wisely said so did many others in the world including our governments. Was surprised to see Tom so emotional instead of rational, I don't think he is one of the idiot people who care about self justice more than think rationally. But the ending for him was made to please people like that since he will get closer to death whenever he heals. An interesting twist.

I really liked to see Richard reconnecting with his old war buddies. So interesting to see them talk in a different time after all this happened, and as Richard reminded us for him it was only a year ago, so the wounds were still fresh.

And we get to see more development in Kyle's story, I think this will be a big issue during the season finale
