I can't hide my excitement for this episode!
2 August 2015 | by oliverbjerregaardSee all my reviews

I think this episode was SO GOOD!

Everything felt so right. So many pieces were brought together! The acting, directing, writing, everything was on pair with the first season! A little too late? Maybe. Did it happen nonetheless? Yes. But you cannot deny the greatness of this episode. The dystopic feeling throughout the whole episode were fantastic.

To sum it up: the first 3 episodes of this season were too slow, too incoherent and it's obvious Justin Lin has ruined the directing in the first two episodes. (face it, it's obvious he has)

But since episode 4 everything has been so good! Episode 5,6 and now 7 has been, to be honest, a fantastic experience to watch. I've enjoyed it so much! I'm extremely anxious to see the season finale. (which to our luck will be 90 minutes)

Give credit where credit is due. This episode: 9.5/10.
