Interesting viewpoints. I've always liked this episode, including the Red character.
I like the bit where Jack is faced by the guy armed with bottle or knife which makes him think about the future and where he goes to meet Red. Watching it gives me a sense that all this going to end which of course it did a few episodes later.
I agree Three Litre
This was a very important scene. It was totally in keeping with the episode and where Regan was at this point in his career. It undoubtely heralded that the end was nigh and that Regan was changing and why it always seemed right to me that the programme halted after this series.
