This season (which should have been the last)gets its groove back after a disappointing season 4. Thorne has been reduced to a minor character rather than a major one, and with the return of Rev. McGee and Yasir for the last few episodes was a plus. A couple of new characters one a medical assistant for Rayann, and the new librarian and love interst for Thorne were welcome additions, and should have been continued. If you are a fan of the early show you will like this season of a groundbreaking show! That for some reason the United States is afraid to show.
