    Episode 57: "Blind Faith"

    Richard Lynch guest stars. Really interesting premise, really mundane execution.

      Episode 58: "Song of the Executioner"

      Production value! Good actors! Splendid cinematography! Satisfying writing! Even Anne is tolerable for once. Kinda odd that Kalas survives this episode, though. I guess they finally decided to stop killing off the interesting villains immediately, but he seems like an inappropriate choice for a recurring character.

        Episode 59: "Star-Crossed"

        Awful. Kalas makes little more than a cameo to kill off a recurring character in an episode that would've worked better as a stand alone story. Hugh Fitzcairn was a fun character in The Hunters. Here, he's a little annoying. The humor throughout most of the episode not only clashes with the Kalas scenes, but isn't particularly funny, either. There's a feeling of "who cares?" over everything, since we're waiting for a payoff to the previous episode rather than a lighthearted romp with Fitz.

          I can only think of the "Kalas Arc" as a whole, and I find it terrific! But there's one thing I wish they'd...made a little clearer.

          Anne Lindsay sees Mac apparently fall to his death - in a very public place, despite its being at night! Later, she accepts that he's dead. But why isn't she questioning why there are no news reports of the death...no obituary, anywhere...seemingly no wake, funeral, or information about a burial? We have to assume she's been told that there was some good reason for secrecy - some mysterious activity he was involved with, maybe for an organization like the CIA? But ideally, we viewers should have heard the "explanation."

            Blind Faith - I REALLY wanted Mac to kill Kage. I came up with a great fanfic to make it happen. Maybe one day I will type it out.

            Song of the Executioner - What a great episode. I really enjoyed the Kalas arc.

            Star-Crossed - It was unfortunate that Fitz died in this episode. But we needed Kalas to keep screwing with Mac. What better way than to kill his best friend? Well, it would have been cooler if he killed Richie.
