In some cases, awarding an episode five stars is a no-brainer, such as Duet and In the Pale Moonlight, but sometimes it requires some humming and hawing. Inter Arma is a case of the latter.

Yeah, I'd probably give Inter Arma 4 or 4.5 stars, tbh. I love the episode, but, like Seige earlier in the season, it's highly derivative in certain respects. In this case, derivative of Cold War espionage stories, rather than war movies.

Like Seige, it's still an important episode, though, and, as you say, it's firmly rooted in the tradition of ItPM.

It's less innovative than that episode, though. I would say the same when comparing it to Chimera.
