Review: Certainly a weird episode, as I was expecting the main story to be wrapped up in the actual finale, not the one before it. The episode was more or less spilt into 2 stories, the conclusion of Johnny and Crystal and Reed and everyone elseís vacation.

The vacation was a little on the tedious side. The villain of the piece was incredibly dull and basically wasted a good opportunity to tell a different type of story.

Johnny and Crystalís story was more interesting, as we finally saw the negative barrier broken. Another interesting note was that the Inhumans were dying in The Great Refuge, due to their air supply running out. It was interesting to see Blackbolt destroy most of The Great Refuge in order to save everyone.

The episode overall, is a weird mix. Thereís nothing brilliant about it, but nothing bad about it either. It was nice to see a resolution to Torch/Crystals relationship (no cliffhanger here folks!) but other than that, itís simply an average episode.
