Psychologic drama

My favorite episode. Although perfection doesn´t exist, I could not find any fault in this one. There are several facts about human nature that are all hitting the spot (how human nature needs to be kept busy, how our perception of the world is always biased, etc). The end of the leading story may be predictable but the direction is so good that the suspense is working until it is revealed.
