That could have been done with so much more interest, but the 1st 30 seconds? The whole Authority/Fundamentalist thing really bogged down the story, along with the other pointless plots (I'm looking at you - smoke monster). And please, a possible season story of Andy and the fairy babies!!! I hope not. I'm remaining hopeful that Ball leaving his position may re-invigorate the show, but I'm skeptical at this point. This is sinking nearly as badly as Burn Notice.
I rather liked the episode...although the Sam/Fly bit definitely could have been shortened.
Again, I liked Russell being taken out rather easily thanks to his infatuation and intoxication with fairy blood, that's been established since the end of season 3 and it was the only logical way to take him out.
I agree with the fundamentalists/Authority, they really hammered that one episode after episode and those meetings were just tedious...Honestly I got the point the first time.
"No chancellor, you may NOT be recompensated for your trip to Des Moines unless you show us your receipts!!!!!!!!!!"
But Andy and the fairy babies...That's going to be a disaster that will make wish you had both the smoke monster and Hot Shot werepanthers instead.
Don't know if the show is sinking, this season was much better than the season 4 witchipoo hell. I almost gave up on the show after enduring that.
