After the momentum of the previous episodes this one shifts gears and stuffs around with Valentine’s day chocolates and looking to the future. This episode is full of small vignettes between characters and it reveals little new information but consolidates relationships and developments that we’ve been aware of for awhile. The few half-hearted attempts at assassination this episode merely remind of there is a great plot progressing and that is reinforced by the in-your-face foreshadowing near the end of the episode. I’m fearing tragedy for some of these characters but I am really hoping that this show manages to bring about a satisfying resolution.
So, slower episode, but not disappointing.
