…The sequence where Harry knocks over Cisco’s Star Trek USS Enterprise model (probably the most tragic scene of the episode if you’re a collector) is extremely well done, as well as when Joe first confronts Harry about the Cap…

…there were some exciting fight sequences directed by Hanelle Culpepper…

…Joe takes on a Samurai with ease while still finding time to babysit an increasingly erratic Harry. These are the moments that really make “Lose Yourself” stand out, portraying the heroism of everyday people and the bonds that keep this team together even when they’re not fighting a great evil…
