What a great start to season 3...
13 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

I'm not going to say anything much other than that I thought this episode was brilliant! The story lines from season 2 pick up and carry on in a progressive manner and as always with SoA I was gripping my seat with excitement as the episode progressed! Fantastic!

If you have watched any episodes of the SoA you will no doubt be hooked as the story lines are great, the acting is second to none and the action and excitement is continuous and fresh with every episode.

I don't want to give away any spoilers but as I find regularly with SoA this episode had my emotions all boiling up in a melting pot....sorrow, love, comradery, shock, fear and anger! Not many shows can give you this so well so often...
