"Sometimes we want things simpler than they actually are, but the tough reality is, we are complex creatures." This episode is amazing, sort of an easy to forget with all the amazing episodes this show has, I really love the way the Ward brothers are written, that dual scene gives me chills every time, it was also good to see the team working together if in a dysfunctional way! Bobbi and Hunter bickering was surprisingly fun, I expected it to be annoying (maybe hindsight?I don't remember how I felt about it the first time) but we do get a fighting duo which is something new, and Bobbi has her own fighting style different from May, it's nice to have variety.
