Title: Picking Up The Pieces

Before I give any review, I need to say this: Sydney with a temper... not a pretty sight. Quite intimidating as a matter of fact.

Following the consequences of Jarod's departure (as seen in 'Retrospective'), the title of this story is a perfect fit. It was presumable that Miss Parker might feel the loss of Jarod, despite her attempts to make everyone else think otherwise, but never to this extreme. As she relays her side of the story, the loss she has faced, the lies, the deceit, it's actually a surprise how long she held without snapping.

In my opinion, this one of the most important and defining stories in this series. Important because it puts Sydney and Miss Parker on a new common path. They both lost someone very dear to them and realize they can lean on each other for support. Defining because the Miss Parker this series will show us in the future is very different from the one we've known so far. THIS is the beginning of that transformation. Without this story, that evolution would not make any sense.
