These writers are working with such impeccable ingenuity we want to see what they come up with this time.

A show indeed, but merely? No! / This is amongst the best I know! / The narrative trick this episode plays, / Cutting back and forth in time / From Grace's ranch to Nora's van / A clever way to depict this span / In which Laurie makes a fateful plan!

I'll never complain about a Laurie-centric episode, partly because Amy Brenneman is so spectacular to watch, and partly because she gets some of the wryest lines in the show.

Amy Brenneman is so special in this episode, her performance on Certified encapsulates everything that she's put into Laurie in the past couple seasons.

It was one more episode in a season woven with spectacular performances.

The puzzle box structure of the episode is so powerful because it's not really about any of those individual mysteries.
