Review - Friday Night Lights Season 5 Episode 10 Kingdom

"Kingdom" isn't a big picture episode. We don't learn more about TMU, Vince's father doesn't revert back to his old life, East Dillon High isn't even in the picture, and there's not really an emotional kicker; nothing major happens. We do, however, see the team bond in numerous ways during the trip to Kingdom.

But while the team had lots of fun, and the audience did also, there were a few dark undercurrents. The Lions win in the end, but it leaves an uneasy feeling for Coach Taylor who gives up his mantra of not stooping down to the opponents' level. It's a win alright, but not up to the usual Taylor-standards. And what about the rest of the season?

As far as plot developments go, Julie returning home after the TA's wife exposes her in front of a bunch of people. It's old by know, seeing as Julie has been snapped by to reality plenty of times before. Hopefully Julie can turn the corner and get something better to do know.

Score: 8.9/10
