A couple of things.
I thought we might get some clarification of Dr. Hubbard (Erik King) and whether he had an underlying motive.
Once again, I was pretty well able to predict most of what happened but still enjoyed it.
I was glad they let the gang nod it out at the end. I loved the way the show imparted background by the flashes instead of other kinds of exposition.
The fight between Calvin and Kurt was really good in that I knew it wasn't a real fight. Anyone who has fought with a brother recognizes some of it. Calvin wanted to die and begged for it. Told Kurt that he wouldn't be free as long as he was alive.
The fight between Hood and Burton wasn't exactly the choreographed stuff. I've read Anthony Starr couldn't handle anymore of those types of fights but it was brutal nonetheless. We saw Hood go through his life but it was his promise to Deva which gave him the will to fight on.
Loved the way Carrie, Job and Brock handled the Proctor/Cartel matter. Brock really grew as a character. Afterwards, there was a short salute to the show and the actors and they said that, at the start, they didn't realize what Brock could do. Great showrunners find great talent and then adjust the show to suit the talent. This show did this.
Nice little thing at the end with Job and Sugar. Honor among thieves. Sugar's silent end piece was the cherry on top.
