This was a really good episode and I think it was the best so far. It is so good that the ending makes you want to know so bad about what is going to happen next week. The entire episode you are guessing about what is going to happen because of some words said at the beginning. Of course you have to watch the episode with annoying Silvia and the big tornado as seen in the previews. o y e a h I forgot that when you do watch it don't miss a second because you will get very confused like I did until i watched it over again. You also learn much more about the new lady and her husband and why they left Chicago. I won't give anything away so you will just have to watch it and i am pretty, in fact certain you will love the excitement and surprises.
