I still haven't rated an episode as excellent but I believe they are getting better. I hope they begin to deal with at least some of the storylines that have been opened rather than opening more and more of them. I just don't care for soap operas.

I'm saving my "Excellents" and 9/10s for MIA-level stuff, lol.

Didn't this kind of fly in the face of what we learned from the original series in "What Price, Gloria?" In that episode, Al told Sam he sees him as the person he's leapt into, thus Al's issues in that episode in seeing his best friend in the body of a woman. In this episode, they said that Addison sees Ben as Ben, not the leapee. Thus, she was able to identify the other leaper.

What Al could see in "What Price Gloria" was retconned not long afterwards, it's explicitly stated several times afterwards that Al sees Sam as Sam. In fact, in the fandom, we say that they tweaked it because of the difficulty Al had seeing Sam as Samantha, and wanting to prevent future difficulties.
