Excellent episode
2 October 2020 | by sanjuparampilSee all my reviews

The story line has been amazing so far. The political agendas, everything looks surreal. I really wish Hughie and Annie will get back together after all that has happened. The final scene was totally unexpected. Kudos to the direction team as everything went well accordingly, even I really liked the scene where they brought up butcher's family issue in the middle of their war with Vought.
