Linear Ranger's Thoughts
An excellent episode and great lead in to the final two episodes. I loved the performances from all the cast, but especially from Jason, Bede, and Holly. They did a superb job in this episode in really getting you to feel for Jarrod & Camille. Casey's struggles to figure out what he did wrong, and how to fix it were well done and very relatable. The battles between the Rangers & their Masters was great, as was RJ's continued wisdom. Again, a very excellent show. And now, we move on to the final two Jungle Fury episodes.
