Wow
4 October 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I am just gonna write a short review, because this is one of "those" memorable episodes and it deserves it.

Without spoiling anything I can say that there is so much revealed in this episode it made me "wow" almost through the whole thing. You never know what's going to happen next and it all fits together like a huge puzzle.

There is some outstanding acting in here and thank god this series still gets all the good actors and thank god the writing and directing didn't make me cry (in a bad way), like the last season final which was horrible in my opinion. Anyway, if you have watched all the episodes and there are some great ones this is most likely one of the highlights.. at least for me it is.

Enjoy, David
