Quotes

[first lines]
Prairie Johnson: I couldn't feel pain. I couldn't sense time. I couldn't understand where I was. But I could see. I could see. I remembered Homer and Rachel and Scott screaming my name. They were no longer with me. The sudden rush of loss made me realize that for the second time in my life, I was dead.

This is a triumphant outing by the OA. An ode to courage and perseverance. Sublime acting from the protagonists and the major antagonist and a slow unwinding of the plot is proving that this is not your typical ADHD focussed teen drama, but an adult affair that requires patience and maturity to unravel, much like the characteristics promoted by the the characters in this epic tale.

Oh, and the staple OA under-the-skin, creep-factor abounds.

Superb episode.
