  • Darwin thinks he is about to reach the end of his mission, while Mina is forced to experience the painful reality of what her boss wants. Farik shows muslim teachings to his daughter, and Gail is forced to make a tough choice dealing with Darwin.

    An improvement from last week, as this episode begins to spiral towards the end of the season. Mina really shines in this episode as she is forced into a situation which puts either herself or the cell at risk. Also for the first time this season I felt that the Ilya storyline really didn't hurt the episode, but actually kind of gave a happy breather from all the seriousness. Also, Gail's character continues to surprise me as similiar to Mina this episode really begins to show her strength. All in all, a pretty strong episode, although I would like to see more of Benito, because that cell member continues to overall be an enigma, compared to the time Salim and Mina get on screen (both well deserved)
