Acceptable episode and it gives a good opening for the new season, however there are some elements that indicate that this season is going to be far away from the quality of season 1... let's see!

The action during the episode is nevertheless intensive. But, opposite to other seasons, it seems that the script is not fully thought throughout beforehand. Watching season 1 and 2 one had the feeling that everything is leading to a big point, however season 4 begins with much less sense of inner logic.

A good side is that most of the main characters (Linc, Mikel, etc) are again in the move, so one can expect a lot of good moments coming.
