    I have to admit, I've considered this show as little more than filler or a distraction but this was actually a good episode. It was obvious that the case was a hallucination before halfway through but they did an overall good job of walking the line making it more and more obvious that it had to be a hallucination followed by the final boom at the end.


    Gotta admit, very good way for a show to start to close out it's first season.

    By halfway to two-thirds through, it was certainly clear it was a delusion. The problem was trying to figure out at what point it stopped being real, and even trying to remember Max having left. They managed to successfully stir up a whirlwind of obfuscation that made it unclear where it started to go off the rails. Not to mention squeezing two different stories out of the same events, to the point that when watching the finale episode that the corporate espionage angle was part of Daniel's alternate reality, and not actually part of the real events.
