If it were you, we'd never leave.
Well, the insane fangirl in me started crying at that point. Seriously, I just burst into tears.
Holy frack this episode was emotional, 5000 times better than the last, and basically has made my love for this show come back in full force. I watched "Act of Contrition" again last night too, and it was much better than I remembered it. It probably improved because now I knew whether it was a flashback or a flash forward. Anyway, back to this episode...
Everything was right again - characterisation, plot progression, drama... it was all great. I am so happy.
