Episode 401 "Hey Todd? How's it going?" ~Justin

This episode starts with a bang and ends with one, both of which involve a very interesting drag queen with an amazing voice. It was really interesting to see Brian, for the very first time, in a spot of financial trouble. He went to such great lengths to stand up for what he really believed in, and it was fascinating to see the events unfold. As usual, I totally worship any mentioning of Rage, as it was by far my favorite plot point in season two. Ted has some amazing scenes with Blake, but it's very saddening to see him with someone other than Emmett. Hunter is awesome now, and looking back I can't believe how much I hated him at first. It was really neat to see Michael so against character, taking in Hunter and living with him, albeit for a short period of time. This was a fantastic season premier, and I'm really hoping that season four isn't as bad as I've been hearing. So far, it's off to a fabulous start!
