The Episode Review

The episode is quite chaotic and unrealistic. It’s odd that Lina has been kidnapped and the sisters are having a good time. Furthermore, the scene in which Yasmina abandons her children and constantly treats them as if they are a part of her problem is disturbing to watch.

The episode concludes with Salem’s father going to meet him while he is in hiding. With the season finale only one episode away, it’ll be interesting to see if the loose ends are tied up.
