Goddammit! I hate it when the bad guy keeps coming back again and again when he should be dead. And I hate dumbass good guys who don't make absolutely sure when they put the bad guy down!

This thing becomes almost unwatchable every time it becomes The Pope Show. A cartoonish character that is horribly over-acted. He's so cheesy and awful that I cringe whenever he starts speaking/shouting.

Looks like they may be setting this new woman up as a love interest for Hal, to clear the way for Maggie and Ben to be together?

Any guesses as to what Tom's visions mean?

the entire thing is in Tom's head caused by a metastatic brain tumor and the finale will be his dying and everyone else is alive and well? Pope will be his spunky male nurse.

ps: I still think this has been a very entertaining season.

I was hoping the Pope would have a wound like a certain character in The Walking Dead comic. ;)

This episode wasn't bad. I enjoyed it. But with 5 episodes to go, isn't it kind of late to be introducing new characters? And they really need to start gearing up for the final battle, instead of going off on tangents.
