So hardcore!
27 October 2012 | by mateo130See all my reviews

Honestly I started to believe that the directors and writers have used all of their gunpowder and this season will be such a compulsory and overwrought final which is made to end the story. Luckily this is not what happened here... After these little bit sleepy episodes this one will hit hard and solid. Continuous gunfights make it more intense and the ending is just great and moving although experienced "series junkies" can easily guess what is coming. Finally they have started to use those gadgets from the past which is something I have been really waited for. I am really curious how the events in this part will affect the the other episodes and how it will affect the character behaviours. Waiting for the next one!!!
