“I was wondering what a Journeycake was, I was very curious and I’m very happy that I finally figured out what it was by the end of the episode,” Rob declares. “All is now whole again in this universe and I feel at one and at peace,” he jokes. “I was brought to tears in this episode on more than one occasion,” Paula proclaims. “It was very heartfelt, beautifully written and even more beautifully acted.” Rob agrees, saying that the penultimate episode was overall “a shocking, heartbreaking and devastating lead-up to the season finale.”
