Amazing... I can barely find words.
20 May 2008 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

After watching this episode I did not know how to feel. It was probably the best and worst moment in any TV-show that I've ever seen. I just sat silently, listening to the music with tears falling from my eyes, the fact that i cried for the first time in five years almost shocked me more than the ending.

The characters in this show have never felt more alive than after this episode, and I can't wait to see more - Nothing can compare to this show when it comes to the actors skill, the script and the ability for the show to really affect you a deeper way than you thought possible.

I love this show and will continue watching it for as long as it airs.
