A great penultimate episode for Big Love tonight, and this episode just reminds us that Big Love still has the potential to deliver a beautifully written episode. So much development here, I really don't know where to start. This episode eased in Amanda Seyfried's departure from the series, and it was just a heartbreaking ending for viewers who have been watching since day one. Sure, this season has not been the best. In fact it's been the weakest of the bunch, and sure some season arcs have been quite ridiculous but this episode just shows us viewers that no matter how over the top things get for Big Love, we still care about these three dimensional characters, and we care about what happens to them, and that's what we saw here.
We've got so much classic entities with this episode from Sarah showing up to the interview to the intense drama between Nikki and Bill when she finds out from Barb that Joey had killed her father. As for Alby, you can't help but feel bad for him. Tonight, we also saw Nikki in a new light, and she looked stunning. Overall an emotional episode for fans that have been watching from the start, and I'm actually excited for the finale with the risk of the family being exposed.
