Not as good as the previous ones but a great setup for next 2 episodes ............
1 May 2014 | by (Dhaka,Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

If you have seen the previous episodes, your mind is completely blown. You will be expecting some explosion like those in this episode. But this episode doesn't deliver that. It delivers something in a whole new level.

A storm has passed in the previous episodes. Now we know that a new storm is coming. This episode calms everything down for a great ending. This episode can be called as the CALMNESS BEFORE THE HURRICANE.

This is an emotional episode. You will get attached to the characters & their feelings.

Story writing is as usual excellent. Actors have delivered.

All in all a great episode to watch & wonder about the outcomes of the next 2 episodes.
