    I really like this one!

    The episode does a good job acting as an emotional arc for Owen, while showing off how when he acts out at people it’s defense mechanism (albeit a really bad one that hurts himself and others), and gives us glimpses into the fact that he’s a good person that cares deeply for others underneath it all.

    The team dynamics are really great, and of course we love Martha.

    The framing device with Maggie was really well done, and I like the overall message about life having meaning even when we’re at our lowest.
