After the hectic pace of the last few weeks, it was a welcome respite this week.
Not my favourite episode of the year, but it did a great job of slowing everything down in order to reset the plot.
It also tackled suicide (or attempted suicide, or suicidal impulses more specifically) in a mature fashion.
Elliott didn’t cease his attempt because of some ‘O.M.G’ moment, or a revelation that changed it all. He just got distracted… by life. That’s usually how it works.
Team Elliott has hit rock bottom, and now they begin the long climb back up. Gonna be a great last few episodes I think.
- Oh, and is all the Back to Future stuff just a bit of a gimmick, or are they eventually going to ‘go there?’
