The only thing semipositive I can say is the cast has my pity. This was predictable and irrational from the get go and the writers were simply putting stuff out their asses. Aaron presented one of the only surprises... not by shooting himself but by the fact that he would be carrying a Steel flask instead of silver or pewter one. And even at that, it wouldn't have stopped that bullet... or would have sent metal shards into his chest.
I expect writing to pass the five-year test... meaning that anyone over five should find it believable without effort to some reasonable degree.
