This episodes was much better than the last week, the general assumed the command and now things moved a little forward, but as you can expect, all ended up the same. This is the type of plot that I like to call "if this X happens, what would happen?", this type of plot is interesting because you may think that all can end, but this is not the objective, the objective is to make you pay attention and think that the plot moved forward.
This happened many times in the past seasons too, and this not means that this type of plot is not interesting. Seeing how Michael and his mother are so smart is a great touch. This is in my opinion what people will remember, they intelligence. Of course Christina plans seemed to me a little exaggerated, because she anticipated everything, but this created a nice ending that can make the next episode thrilling. Also a revelation was made, but this not change anything.
As you can expect, Lincoln part is just distraction, like the general part too.
Presentation Phase - » (8/10) nice and interesting,
Complication Phase - » (8/10)*2 Nice touch, Michael versus Christina and she wins? No…,
Ending - » (9/10) this is the type of ending that we were waiting,
Details/Progress (To point A to B) -» (8/10) nice progress,
Time and Scene Management - » (9/10) the filler scenes didn´t interfere this time,
Plot Details/Holes- » (9/10) Christina can predict the future, everything else is fine,
Suspense/Tension - » (8/10) Sara provided the best suspense scene,
Drama - » (8/10) nice drama for Michael who discovers one thing,
Surprises/Shocks/Twists - » (7/10) nice revelation but nothing changes.
Overall a great improvement compared with the previous episode.
