This episode was subtle in the intrigue and excitement area. A lot of loose ends were tied up. Jack and Nolan shoring up their friendship was welcoming, especially since Nolan lost Patrick.

I wonder if Nolan and Jack will go rogue together to find another way around Emily's plans. I'm not sure about her relationship with Aiden.
