Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: This is about how John's plan goes wrong (it seems to have reduced inhibitions) and how he opts for a more direct vengeance.

Con: No surprises in this story. Once we hear John voice the concept, we're sure that it'll be released and the results will be destructive.

One wonders how he tested this before he released it.
