I enjoyed this episode and I have not been disappointed this season. I gave it a 4. I would have given it a 5 if Miles was back in top fighting and swordplay mode.
Miles has not been giving me much swordplay lately but he did beat some important intel out of Horn's soldier.
Monroe is standing in for Miles in the awesome fighting category. After slicing one neck, he leaped onto four soldiers and single handedly dispatched them. When Aaron told Monroe he and Cynthia would not last three days without his help, Monroe gave him a skeptical look and said "You think 3 days?"
The Matheson women have nerves of steel. They infiltrated Horn's headquarters to drop a gas bomb. I think Rachel was going to drop the bomb even though her father was in the HQ. When Miles grabbed her hand that held the bomb, they are lucky that was not an "oops" moment. They did not want to kill Aaron who had just been brought in as a prisoner.
Her father accepted the group's anger and sacrificed his freedom in order to help them to escape. Rachel had a change in attitude and said she will try to rescue her father along with Aaron.
Poor Aaron. We expected Cynthia to ask if he killed her husband. She did and, as also expected, she dumped him. Tears were rolling down his face.
Horn's backstory does not make me feel any empathy for him. He is a sadistic and selfish man and he had the nerve to tell Aaron that they are "partners". He instructed his soldiers to hurt Cynthia to test Aaron's emotional response. Then he said it was not safe to be in the room and left his soldiers in there.
Tom Neville might be the most dangerous and brilliant strategist on the show. He is awesome.
I enjoyed this one more than the others that have been on lately.
That's not to say I enjoyed it. But the background on one of the characters was interesting.
I thought the background on Horn was interesting. It was normal for him to be scared that his mother was dying and he was very angry that his father would not get medicine for her. His father had a great deal of faith and wanted Horn to also have faith, but Horn was too angry to accept his father's faith.
