Verdict
Thank goodness things pick up a little after that awful first episode and considering the lack of flashback or other Immortals (Richie doesn't really count) this is a strong episode. Highlights include Mac's indecision and eventual reaction to the Tess look-alike, while the conclusion is satisfyingly final as regards Horton - at long last. B
