Since I learned
This series which has been edgy and generally leans that way, has also generally never really escaped from the realm of average. One of the things which I think gave it better sense of itself was the presence of Gretchen in Cole's life. Another and one which is visible here is the use of the "Fight through it, I know you are in there" speech to a former ally now being controlled by someone else. There are some decent and well planned and well executed action sequences here, but they end up being for nothing, as the layering on of some fight scenes can't cover the holes below.
