Re: "the music" was well used/explained IMO
It felt like Bear had taken a break for this last episode. Really did.
Read the blog entry. It was his most "ambitious" epsiode ever, there will be an entire CD soutrack for just Daybreak, and he said he barely slept for 16 days straight working on it.
That's what I call taking a break.
