I liked this episode. It was not stellar but it was a good Egan episode. I got me a little misty eyed when Maggie distributed her father's ashes and I am glad nothing happened to them while they were out on the wire basket. It also had some great dialog with Kurdy and I think that is really Egan's strong points ... dialog and Kurdy.

What I didn't like so much was that it took Kurdy too long to figure out the Librarian didn't know how to read. Maybe he was just trying to be nice and not offend him by jumping to conclusions. Or maybe it was because it was in the episode description that he didn't know how to read which made me think it moved too slowly. It was also a bit too predictable when the readers came to the Librarian's rescue. Finally, even though the end scene with Kurdy convincing the patrons of the library to fight for their liberties ... it was a tad preachy.

Still, I liked this episode and I hope they touch on the scenes we were shown in this episode (the one from The Long Road (Part 1) and about Jeremiah's connection to Denver) later on and hopefully they will make more sense.

  • What exactly is Jeremiah's connection to Denver? Is it where he grew up or just the last place he settled down in before he found TM?
  • Is the Order of the Final Grace really just a group of zealots or is there something more behind them ... like Valhalla Sector?
  • Who was the woman in Jeremiah's flashback? Was it a scene that was edited out from The Long Road?
  • Was she the one he intended to "look up" in Denver and just happened to bump into Red instead?
  • Why didn't Maggie disclose the full promise she made to her father? Was she purposefully being deceitful?
