It looks like this season is going to revisit all our favorite characters from seasons past (providing they're still alive.) It was great to see Loretta again. Hopefully, she plays a solid part in the season's action.

I had almost forgotten about Dickie! Hopefully, this means the season won't be without comedy relief after all. If this is his one and only appearance, I will be greatly disappointed.

I personally do not feel that Loretta has sets her sights too high.

Was the side story with The Wiz only a way to keep Boyd busy this episode? Or is this need for larger explosives going to play into the season? Twice now they've mentioned that this many explosives will get you labelled a terrorist. I don't know if that's just a fact of life or foreshadowing.

I'm not sure I mind if it was just busy-work for Boyd - I'll forgive a lot for that final blood-splattered scene.

Something I've been wondering though - Avery mentions he knows 6 generations of Bennetts, but doesn't know any Givens'... given the Bennett/Givens blood feud goes back generations, this seems unlikely.. so I wonder whether there's actually a significant history between Avery and ol' crazydad.

Yeah, I caught that one, too. It could possibly have been an intentional insult. An oblique way of saying "Your family doesn't mean shit to me."

The whole sequence with Loretta & the apple pie played out just beautifully. It really kept you guessing whether it had that extra kick in it, right up to the moment she tasted it. That alone was worth the entire episode.

I had hoped that it would end with Loretta revealing that she had spent the last year building up a resistance to iocane powder, Princess Bride style, but no luck.
