Episode 708--Fantastic Mid Finale

Hearts Still Beating is a fantastic mid-season finale. It was a good end to the first eight episode story-arc. It brings all the things together. The episode managed to keep quite a few secrets, but that works well. The countdown to the All Out War starts here. I give Hearts Still Beating a rating of 10 out of 10.
