I liked this episode, even though it was a filler episode. Nothing added to the overall storyline of the season. I am a fan of history, especially American History, so this was a fun episode for me. I really appreciated the message being sent by Jax and Maya’s mission. I think it puts things in perspective to the issues of the present. Both Sara and Ray deal with their roles on the team. The acting was good and the writing was great. The only real negative I can point out is that it adds very little to the season as a whole and for that it’ll lose a lot of points. I’d score it at an 80%. I can’t reward an episode for being a filler.
