Six episodes in with only four to go. There’s still a lot of ground to cover in regards to all of the different threads, but everything is slowing starting to come to a head and come together. This week’s episode had a new writer credited and whenever I see her name, it makes me very very happy. I caught it in the credits and even backed it up to make sure I was seeing right. Sure enough Jane Espenson worked on this episode and anytime she’s around, excellent writing is a guarantee. The woman knows how to write complex characters and stories so this episode was a real treat. I wish I could say the same for some of the characters though because a couple of them didn’t have such a great time.
