Blackwater is well-written and has terrific action pieces
Blackwater is by far an excellent episode for Season 2. It does a nice job continuing the story lines from the previous episodes and the action pieces during the episode are terrific. There are no problems I have for Blackwater.
The performances are still great, the story/script is still well-written, the dialog is fresh this time around, the pacing is much tighter and doesn't drag, the directing is really good, the music score suits the action moments really well, the editing is sharp, and the scenery is still gorgeous. Also, the character relationships never fails to be interesting. So, overall, a classic episode and a sign that things are getting progressively better. Next episode review, coming right up.
