This was a great episode. Perhaps the saddest hour I have ever seen of any show on television. After reading some reviews, I don't think they understood it. This show has always been based on strong character development and after 4 seasons of trials and tribulations and their individual desires to drive in different directions, this hour was a "glue" episode that brings all the characters back together in support of each other. You no longer feel like they are pitted against each other and are humbled by the inevitable.
