Waaw. What an episode. This show already had me from day one. And finally a show on TV again that gets better with each episode it brings. Season 2 began good but after this episode i know for sure. it's even getting better and better.

Episodes don't get rated a lot for each one apart. But when i saw 1 9.2 average from 150 people i knew they were right.

Not really a review. Just an add and some recognition for this show that has such a good story. You have to be in it from the beginning. It's becoming a big motion film because of the great cliffhangers and the overall story arc.

Don't miss out on this. !!! Artiste !!
