Point of Origin (#5.18)
23 February 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A pretty awesome episode. I really like the story they made about Mobalage. And in this episode it was having some amazing development. Also those were some very powerful scenes. Especially him remembering his torture when Mark leads him to it. Djimon Hounsou was great in it, it is not surprising he ended up having a great career, even with Oscar nominations and winning many awards.

Dr. Weaver's story was also keeping me on track. So emotional and well done. The scene on the deathbed when Weaver pretends to be the ladies' diseased daughter was beautiful.

And one thing that makes me happy is that Carol is keeping the baby! I am not into babies, and usually root for characters just to abort but Carol having a baby with Doug just seems right.
