A Linc To The Past
1 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode dives deep into the past lives of many of our characters. We see the wrongdoings, the dirty secrets, the desperation, the new unseen details, and links that connect many of them together. It raised the interest level in the story greatly and all of the connections were fascinating. The back-stories and origins of our characters brought out pity, hatred, and astonishment over the unfolded conspiracies. Some of the acting wasn't anything special, but at least Veronica went from stone to wooden acting.Overall a great prequel episode with terrific writing that brought the unknown into the light and revealed facts that made things and situations make more sense.
