    Here's my problem, trying to find a way to express the sheer joy at the look on Stockwell's face as he passes "Father Stellini."

    This is the third and final part in the show's impending changeover. This is the point of no return (though they'll use that episode title later in the season.)

    Heading towards the firing squad, the dreams/nightmares that the team experience are fun and telling. Other moments of joy in this episode include Murdock's continuing annoyance and deepening sadness as he tries to come to terms with things...and his attempts to set it all straight. All this and the look on the dock!

    Yes, this is where the end begins and the A-team shifts to being Stockwell's Angels...but that's okay. They did it in style in three tense and different episode showcasing everyone in fun and interesting ways.

    Great Stuff!
