I thought this was a beautifully written episode. Mysteries continue to unfold and be explored, character stories & backstories continue to be fleshed out, and an overall convergence of various plot lines seems imminent. The dialogue writing gets very high marks. The Ramon/Farid link is fascinating. Kristen had a terrific episode. Ashley is becoming a heroine with a serious purpose. Duc is starting to be unleashed and that seems to portend fascinating revelations too. Perhaps the only concern I have is with Audrey's character. All too few shows & movies, even acclaimed ones, seem to be able to convincingly portray a middle-age woman in crisis. Often, she becomes a simple basket case, or clams up and becomes inarticulate, or does things that abandon the previous development of her character. I hope that doesn't happen with Audrey. Her soft and vulnerable side just a few episodes ago now seems like an irregularity. Which I believe is a mistake, both story wise and for the actor. I think it would be much more challenging for an actor to show restraint, tenderness & vulnerability than stereotypical qualities like betrayal, inscrutability, anger, etc. Which goes back to the seeming dearth of writers who are either skilled or lack the insight to credibly portray a middle-age female's point of view. But again, this is a terrific episode overall, despite my concerns, which may turn out to be unfounded. I'm really rooting for this show to continue the all-around excellence it has shown to this point.
