No Spoiler - But Honest Review
8 July 2017 | by mcpuffin-27569See all my reviews

This was by far the worst episode of any show I've ever seen. NOTHING HAPPENS!!! It's some Irish story that has nothing to do with the actual show. You can completely skip this episode and you won't miss any of the show's story line. I recommend skipping it. Now I have to fill 2 more lines of text to post my review. So I'll say this! I REALLY LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!! But whoever wrote and directed this episode needs to have their head examined. But most definitely, they need to be black-listed in the movie and TV industry. There! I hope that's enough text.
