Mind blowing

Even though the signs were obvious in hindsight in regards to this weeks twist, I did no pick where this was going. Absolutely remarkable and enjoyable. I was scrolling through some of the early reviews ripping into this show and they're looking pretty silly now, there was a review titled "boldly going nowhere" - this show is anything but.
