Of course, the set design and the costume design in the episode are phenomenal. I’m glad to see some of the most inspirational writers on screen. The dynamic set up between Rufus, Wyatt, Lucy, and Agent Christopher should be great. The season is heading in a great direction, and I am anxiously awaiting the announcement of a second season.
