I loved this episode. Firstly, because of the first ten minutes and, secondly, because we finally had some real closure in Johanna Beckett's murder. Not complete closure, but at least it isn't hanging over everyone's (Kate's) heads. I actually liked the tension between Esposito and Ryan, but if that goes on for too long it could get annoying. And when I mean too long, I mean the next episode. The premiere did have the same dramatic quality as the fourth season everyone was complaining about, but it kind of had to because of the way season four ended. After this episode, though, it should return to the lighter side everyone keeps reminiscing so fondly over. At least, that is what I heard. And am also hoping for.
I"m so freaking excited!
