Goofs

As Mia and Pearl are driving through the Ohio countryside on their way to Shaker Heights near the end of the episode, at minute 55:00 the landscape suddenly changes for a few seconds to a typical tree-lined "Allée" in north-eastern Germany, easily recognizable by the distinctive marker posts placed at intervals of 50m on German roads to indicate the edges of the pavement and help drivers judge their speed.

loved it!

I personally think that we will have to rethink all the discussions about who is a likable and who is an unlikable character. This episode was important in terms of that. It puts things into perspective. And we should also forget about the Kerry Washington's facial expression narrative, it doesn't matter anymore (it never mattered to me. unpopular opinion - i like her approach). The acting was amazing. The actors who played young Kerry and young Reese nailed it in every way. YAY
