Robert Sean Leonard,
For a series which has been pretty much light comedy with sinister shadows all season, this season ender is heavy. All season long we have had a build up to this, but putting the main characters into peril as this one does is a major enders.
Meg Pryor and Sam Walker get caught up the 1964 Philadelphia riots. While Bandstand which is in the back drop of this series all the time is still in this show, it really takes a back seat to Meg and Sam in this one. Meg sees destruction and pain on the night of her sweet 16th and she gets major shock in more ways than one.
This is the most powerful and dramatic episode of the season. The series has done a good job getting here addressing the racial issues of 1963 and 1864 better than most shows. This one is the explosions which happened in the race riots of 1964. That fateful summer is a unique time in a turning point of rage relations in US History. The tearing apart of this country by it's seams is well represented in this episode.
"My BoyFriend's Back" is just the right song to tune into this tension.
