The first ep of the season I'm not too keen on. There have been worse episodes, but this was bordering on dull for me. It seemed it's message was clear enough, but it wasn't told in a particularly clever or engaging way.

I suppose if I liked one thing it was the existence of that last ounce of strength or spirit that can be drawn upon in a crisis. It can be the most miraculous thing....or not as it was in this case; it all depends on the person who is using it. Nice idea, just not particularly well executed.
