A great episode this one. I just love so many things about it. First of all, getting another glimpse of Sam's past in the form of Nicole is a treat. For the first time thus far in the series, Sam begins to consider trying to remain where he is, in order to remain with her. And also for the first time, we see a strong selfishness there. You can really tell that he's willing to let John fall. Of course, at the last moment he can't go through with it and saves him, but it's great to see that Sam isn't 100% perfect. It makes him more relatable.

I never knew much about Man of La Mancha until watching this episode, but I do love the music. Scott has a great voice and this is the first real time we get to see him show it off.

That last scene, with Sam venturing forth with his trusty companion Al, makes me nearly well up every time. A sad, powerful scene. One of the best ever QL scenes, actually. Especially that last line. "Adventures, old friend".

My rating. Excellent. One of the true classic episodes of the series.
