This whole episode is magic
27 May 2019 | by GraXXoRSee all my reviews

No spoilers.

They say that all the best things are worth fighting for and this episode epitomises that sentiment. The whole episode pulls you into their world and culminates in hard-fought-for climax.

Finally after five episodes, we catch a glimpse of what the five might be capable of together... A coincidence? perhaps...

Once more confirming that The OA isn't a show for those with short attention spans in a TV world of self-conscious expositions, obvious plot devices and outlandish deus ex machina where waving a longer wand or heavier gun gets what you want, The OA takes a far more measured approach as it rewards those who've followed so far with a rather epic reveal!

Surreal, Subtle, Sublime... Satisfying.
