    Oh.. I most say, after watching episode after long break, this show always feel powerful put I hope this time there was more as the story just seemed to be so influential, powerful and important. Chief Justice storyline was probably the most moving one, most powerful and very emotional. I mean, old man who has very clear believes, who is out for the right thing.. but age is getting on the way.. how many times have we seen it? Maybe it is wisdom what comes with time but it seems like those, at the end of their journey, seems to see best.. And the dilemma Toby puts that young man.. that position.. That was moving. And also Zoe's storyline.. to reflect on the events at the start of the season.. And the final scene.. very powerful.moreless
