I’m unsure why, but this episode seemed to fall a little flat for me, regardless of eminent danger for several characters. Only a few episodes left, and I feel eager to get some of these story lines wrapped up. Maybe it’s just my feeling like I already know how the story will conclude. I do like the romance brewing between Arlene and Keith, and am glad that the Writers seem to be leading to her having a happy ending.by
