Goofs

When Elliot pleads guilty in front of the TV, to the judge and his father pops up yelling, "what are you doing", following that scene his father returns to the judge and yells, at that exact moment you can see the judges right eye falter -out of reflex. Since his father is just in Elliot's mind the judge should have never faltered. See more »

A tad frustrating, but it has me so excited for the next one.

I have loved this season so far, but I will be the first to admit that the story has been fragmented. For reasons that were revealed a couple of episodes ago, Elliot has been separated from the main story, but it's not just that. There also hasn't really been a main story. The connections between all the show's plots have been more or less tangential this season, and so it has lacked the narrative unity of the first one. I've been greatly anticipating the moment that things would start to connect. Well, that finally started to happen this episode. I have wondered about the significance of certain story lines for a while, until this episode showed me why they matter.

I don't pay attention to the recaps with the same razor sharp attention that I watch the show with, so this episode really caught me off guard when the recap transitioned seamlessly into the episode. If someone were to try and edit the recap out of the episode, I'm not sure where they would split it up. The lack of a clear line of division works very well because the first scene is a direct springboard off the last scene of the first season, finally answering all the questions raised by that scene and the big twist from a couple episodes ago. To finally receive answers after a year of wondering was delightful.

Whiterose and DiPierro are quickly growing into my two favourite characters (except for Elliot, obviously). My love for Whiterose stems not from a liking of him/her, but rather my fascination. He/She's so strange, and yet little clues keep popping up that make me feel like I'm starting to understand him/her. He/She had a great scene with Pryce that reminded me a little bit of the Littlefinger/Varys dynamic from Game of Thrones.

The big twist this episode (because every episode this season seems to have a twist) does not necessarily provide answers to the many remaining questions, but rather coalesces them all into one, and promises a catch-all answer very soon. As a result, this episode did not leave me as elated about it as I have been for some of this season's other episodes, but it leaves me more excited for the next one than I have ever been.
