Breaking Ranks
8 December 2019 | by lassegalsgaardSee all my reviews

Definitely one of the more dull episodes of this season. The sixth episode of this rather great series was not what I had hoped for. Instead of doing something that could have furthered the story, we got an episode that was mainly focused on showing Ezra in a different setting than we have seen him in before: a cadet. I think most of the new characters were kinda good, and I liked that Ezra learned that the hard things need to be done to get what's needed, but I also felt like the training sequences were too unrealistic as training exercises. I didn't fully get what they would actually achieve from these exercises, but that might be expanded on later. And I thought that the episode lacked the other players a whole bunch. I like Ezra and I think he is a good character, but I don't really care about him on his own yet. He has a lot to learn and I hope that future episodes will keep him with the rest for a little. It wasn't a bad episode, necessarily, but it was the most disappointing episode of the series this far. Greg Weisman is a good writer, but I don't think he has had a truly remarkable episode yet.
