This episode certainly packed a few punches and kept the revelations coming thick and fast. Jack’s character was still a bit flat, narrative wise. Its almost as if they missed out writing a proper back story for him.
Some of this episode was a bit OTT and I felt a bit ‘meh’ about the sickly sweet ending where the two families combine and get to know each other. I know people think Smith is a national treasure. I guess this is true (she certainly has been in plenty of television shows recently, to critical acclaim.) but I just feel its not worth the hype.
Over all, this was an OK drama but nothing special.
MY RATING: ** / *****
