The bad weather has migrated to Metropolis. The sky is foreboding and gray. A man picks up a newspaper. Headline: "The Blur Saves Under Scrutiny." The newspaper flips down to reveal the magnificently maned bastard holding it. "Don't I know you from somewhere?" the news vendor asks him. "I don't think so," Lionel says cheerfully. "I'm from out of town -- unexpected visit." No kidding. "But I guess I'm back in the nick of time," he says as the rain begins to pour. "Wouldn't want to miss how it all turns out." He opens a black umbrella and disappears into the crowd as dark orchestral music crescendos and the ending credits roll. Hot damn!

Kudos to Bryan Q. Miller for writing a well-paced, interesting episode and to director Kelly Souders for not overdoing it with the closeups. Why can't the show be this good all the time? Or at least more than once every few years?
