delivers its best episode of the season (and one of the best episodes of the series) with "Certain Agony of the Battlefield" -- and "agony" is definitely the right way to describe how it leaves you feeling by the end. Want some answers? Want a clone scene that has been three seasons in the making? Want to find out what kind of guy Paul is? Want to see one of the funniest dance scenes ever? Want to see Delphine and Cosima in the same room again? You get all that and more in just 45 or so minutes.
It's also an emotional roller coaster of an episode, one that might leave you feeling a bit drained by the end. From the laughter that results because of Alison and Donnie in the most amusing scene of the series thus far, to the bittersweet joy of seeing a conversation between two clones, to the tears caused by the tragic ending, it's almost hard to believe that this all happens in one hour. But it does, as is true so often for this show, though perhaps not to such an extent as is done here.
