Personal Review:
This was a great episode. This is one of those episodes that shows Sam’s soft spot for a girl he likes. It shows that ultimately good will always triumph over evil.


Best Line:
" Sam? If you’re yelling for a three letter savior I suggest that it start with a G." --


Best Scene:
The best scene is when Sam is hypnotizing Alia and she goes to a mountain surrounded by white fluffy clouds and a beautiful blue sky. It is so peaceful and serene.


Quotable Quotes:

"Good Lord only a week in the box and you don’t know where you are." --

"We had leaped together and survived, but we still didn’t know if Alias had leaped with me or I had leaped with her…" --Sam

"Wardens got plans for you angel, big plans."--
