So it looks like we might be getting somewhere. Heavy on the ‘might,’ if only because it looks like “Almost Home” is trying to wrap up a lot of loose threads and moving the plot along. Sure, things ramp up a bit, but at the same time, we retread familiar territory. Some of what we got was a bit too predictable, but we did get an interesting end that did manage to interest me to see how the plot would progress from there.
I tell you what: during the production of “May Be the Last Time,” it seems like the directors chose to just let the cameras roll and allow the characters to go about their business at their own rate. Their own, very slow rate. Really, this episode felt like one giant waiting game.
