I'm not usually one to comment on TV shows or even movies for that matter, but after having watched this episode I was left in complete awe. The episode deals with, in part, an expose of Tommy Gavin's soul and it is done in such a beautiful way that when the closing credits rolled, I think I'll be depressed for a few days. At the very least I'm not going to be watching another tragedy-style anything for a few weeks.
Perfect is not a word I throw around much, but this episode was exactly that. The only reason I gave this a 9 instead of the full 10 is because of the scenes dealing with the supporting cast. Don't get me wrong, those scenes are good, but the real meat here are the scenes featuring Tommy Gavin. The supporting cast scenes are interwoven within the Tommy Gavin scenes so they tend to take away some of the emotional effect of Tommy's scenes. Although in retrospect, if I had to watch all the scenes about Tommy back-to-back without the other scenes to serve as small intermissions, I doubt I would be able to handle the emotional consequences.
Watch this show. If for nothing else, but to understand the full background for this episode. Amazing.
