  • Wonderful episode again!

    Wonderful episode again! I was left pretty stunned at the sudden time jump though, that should have been saved for another season. I would have liked to have seen more Malvo too.

    A solid episode here, but it was made by the final scene where we learned about how Lester is truly feeling. Even though his life has improved, does he regret what Lorne ended up doing to it to get there?
