Not merely a FFO but the great-granddaddy of the FFOs
14 March 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

FFO episodes are "for fans only." They have special meaning only for those who have watched every episode and are in sync with the story. To a stranger, they are just a big headache.

This is not merely a FFO, but this could set the bar as THE FFO for all series present and future.

There is stuff going on here involving ancient rivalries, ancient loves, ancient plots, and yes the common theme is "ancient" -- if you don't remember the earlier episodes, you are not going to get it.

If you do, this one is a WOW.

Every possible emotional chord is punched and punched hard.

The memories of a daughter for her father.

Would sacrifice would you make to save the one you loved? Would you knowingly put a child in harm's way? Most astonishing of all, buried in the episode is a "trope" about building a house in your head because you never had the chance to build one in reality.

The emotional impact of this is off the charts. Watching this episode in 2015, I am astonished no one in Hollywood ever riffed a film off the idea.

Oh well, it's early. I expect the IMDb to be around for a while. Give it a decade or two and let's see what happens...
