I was super-disappointed with Season Six, or Season Six A, or whatever we’re supposed to call it. And the first scene of tonight’s episode — a retcon! — had me prepped to assume the worst. But the rest of the episode was fantastic; not as taught or striking as the show was at the very beginning, but still packing a great combination of drama and humor, a range of tones, etc. Now I’m excited for the rest of the season.
