Quotes

Cullen Bohannan: Whoever you're shootin' at is gonna be just as scared as you are. You take your time, don't loose your head. Count your rounds as you fire. If you're calm, you'll count their rounds, too. The trick is, making sure the other man has to reload before you do.
Elam Ferguson: And if I don't?
Cullen Bohannan: You're dead. End of lesson...

Best episode so far
4 January 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I don't have much to add to the review of whitewolf80 above. I totally agree with him. This episode showed depth, tension, and for those who don't care so much for that: action! We really get to know the characters better this time. Not only does our view of them alter by there revelations, but also does the settings(!) of this episode. All the scenes in the second half takes place outside the mobile town of the workers, and it's refreshing to see the characters in a different surroundings.

Another welcome deviation is the pacing. In contrast the first six, this episode has a higher tempo/follow-up of scenes and story development. It's like there is so much happening in this episode, hence the title of whitewolf80's review: it's like a little movie (although he probably meant it in another way).

This episode is a real surprise, and worth being watched by anyone who is not familiar with this increasingly more interesting series.
