The Boys Are Back in Town
(Probably Time To Flee)
Lucky (or unlucky as it has been) thirteen has been the vehicle for many emotional story reveals over the seasons of yesteryear. In days of brotherly conflict, this was the episode where it was hashed out – though usually not resolved – and in more recent years, conflicts were laid on the table and called out. Not an action packed episode for the main plot – thirteen usually means a key element for the big story in another form.

What was the hardest for you to watch? Which could you have done without? What conflict do you think was the most well handled? When will the boys teach Jack Rock, Paper Scissors?
