Well... in terms of social justice crap, this ep was maybe slightly better than all other heavy-handed social crap episodes in SG (the portrayal maybe 6/10). I really don't think that the guy will get many years in jail for scratching Yvette's cheek, but whatevs, and I really don't think that it warrants trying to kill him, but these heavy-handed social episodes gotta do what they gotta do.
Also: 'Kara, you hope speech will not help this time'. Are you sure, Nia? I mean, her hope speeches tend to work, just look at Myriad in Season One.
Well, at least, something wrong with lenses plot is moving forward. Hooray?
