I liked it, too; especially when Lynn held her own without needing to be rescued by Peter. Embassy employees in that region probably have to receive some kind of self-defense training, and she proved more than capable of taking care of herself. My only minor complaint is that we didn't see Peter live up to his promise of teaching Golan's son math before he left Jerusalem.

I agree that the story didn't explain well for non-religious viewers the reasons why a fringe Jewish group and a Christian cult would be working together to bring about the end of days. At it's simplest though, it could just be explained that each group believes they will benefit by helping to usher in God's reign on earth. Hence Pastor Billingham getting ticked off when Joshua tells him he doesn't want him present at the sacrifice. It's all about believing you're "chosen" and that you will live in glory next to God.

The series began with Emma being brought in to save everyone in town. I wonder if next season is a set up to ending the series with everyone in town trying to save Emma. There would be a nice symmetry to that. Also, it would make everyone earn their happy endings as they act that selflessly. Looking forward to seeing who plays Arthur, Guinevere, Galahad, Morgan LeFay and MERLIN!
