Short and Simple Review by WubsTheFadger

This episode is one of the best in the series so far. Ed Harris, Anthony Hopkins, Thandie Newton, James Marsden, and Jeffery Wright all do a great job. Thandie Newton gives the best performance. Her character has a number of amazing scenes. We also get some interesting revelations about Anthony Hopkins character named Ford.

The action sequences are fantastic and there is a perfect blend of violence throughout the episode.

There is a slight change of pace in this episode that could seem slow to some. This episode focuses more on answering some questions and raising new ones.

Pros: Great acting, fantastic action sequences, change of pace, and finally some answered questions

Cons: Slower change of pace and new raised questions

Overall Rating: 9.5/10
