Great episode. Brilliant writing and structure.
20 August 2017 | by RikerDonegalSee all my reviews

Great episode. Brilliant writing and structure.

Most of the episode is dialogue, except for a kickass Colleen Wing fight scene near the end.

The dialogue scenes are almost all two-handers, pairing up two characters with opposing views and letting them debate. Something which always makes for great drama. Danny/Davos, Colleen/Bakuto, Davos/Claire, Claire/Colleen, Colleen/Danny, etc. Scene after scene is filled with intelligent conflict, tension and meaningful development.

Intelligent conflict because, when you think about it, Danny and Davos basically want the same thing. So do Colleen and Bakuto. And Colleen and Danny.

The show has made some very clever storytelling decisions. Making Colleen one of the Hand and adding Davos to the story so late in the day, are two prominent examples. Both are shaking up the story at a time with the other Netflix/Marvel shows were slowing down.

Ward is missed, however.

And the Joy/Harold scenes here are brief. They are quietly working together now, while everyone else in the show's rich tapestry of characters is pulling and pushing at each other to try and find a way forward. Very exciting.
