Um. I loved it. I really, really loved it.
Gaeta! I was screaming at the screen (he was the only character who I could stand, for quite a while). I cried. I yelled for joy at Laura. Anders proved himself to me. Chief Tyrol continued being the character I fell in love with.
It had Bill being made of awesome. It had a wonderful moment with Lee. Even Kara seemed more herself (completely messed in the head, but... you know - herself.) The whole Gaius/Six thing was intriguing once more. They addressed the fact that Laura wasn't legally president. Zarek was his ambiguous self. And yes. Laura. I love her deeply.
I cared for the characters again! I thought the pacing was fantastic. It was dramatic without being melodramatic.
