Best episode to date.

I'd been struggling with this series until this episode. There has been darkness, but no why. No spoilers here, but we get an explanation why the Byrds are where they are. There are several different timelines, which chop and change throughout the episode,(very Nolan-esque!) but which all come together towards the end. Superb!
