Did You Know?


Felix: I'm sorry for interrupting.
Al-Masih: There was a frost on the ground this morning. I watched a bird drinking the melting frost. A person might have wondered where the frost came from in the middle of summer, but the bird drank what it could, and left.
Felix: The people, your followers, I don't know if you've seen, but there are so many now. They keep asking to see you, to know what's next.

This is a very slow episode.

And not just slow, but frustrating at the same time. Everybody is disappointed:

The CIA agent - no progress at all. The Syrian refugees - no point in staying there any longer. Rebecca - still in that dump of a small town. Felix, her father - nothing to tell all those people seeking favors from the Messiah.

And - even Al-Masih spends his time alone in a tent, talks to no one.

Not a single miracle!

Messiahs are supposed to PERFORM!!! And what's HE doing?

Frustration runs high, all around. Time to move on. Good for the people of the tornado stricken town. Finally a chance to rebuild. Real life instead of fantasies. Good for everybody.
