  • In all intents and purposes this is the finale I always wanted Sleeper Cell to have, and it wasn't even the finale. Closure, amazing acting, and all in all one of the best single television episodes ever made.moreless

    Fitna was a classic. It was action packed, heartwarming, tearjerking, and incredibly well acted all in one. I don't want to spoil this, so I won't go into detail, but basically there is alot of closure with the relationships we have come to love. Ilya and Farik fall into the background this episode, something I think should've happened all along, and they let Darwin absolutely shine. I mean, I have been a fan of him, despite the fact he wasn't my favorite character, but if this isn't an emmy worthy performance I don't know what is. I mean, he stirred up all the emotions that he personally feels, and it makes me so much more involved with the show. I mean, it may not be as action filled as other shows, but it is better. These terrorists, they weren't all bad, and thats what makes this show as a whole strong, and even more so this superb episode. Do not go through life without seeing this, because you will be missing out on some of the best tv ever.moreless
