Another solid episode and I really liked learning more about Jeremiah's past and why he writes all those letters to his father. I am glad we finally got to see more about this quiet and private man. Whoa, then there was the possibility of Jeremiah having a son? Wow, I want them to revisit that someday soon.

Also, now Thunder Mountain has its first ally. Wonder what will come of that and if Michelle will play a role in getting more allies together? I loved the character of Michelle and her relationship with Jeremiah. They cannot possibly leave that alone so I look forward to seeing her again.

The Star Wars and Star Wars and apocalypse movie references were great! I assume they were talking about the first Star Wars movie ("A New Hope") and since that isn't out on DVD yet, I thought was a very nice and subtle hint of what's to come in a year or so. ;)

When Michelle was talking about the art and the importance of saving it, I was reminded of the speach Markus gave at the end of Firewall. He said that the Renaissance would have never occured if the churches hadn't saved all the knowledge of the secular world and returned it to the world after the Black Death. It was a very nice link and set up of what's to come.
