This episode was powerful. From Nicole’s beautiful sex to identifying with Daniel’s denial, the episode started out in the powerful yet still feel-good territory. Muna’s story did the “holy shit…” clincher. I’m so grateful that she shared her story because we often do not get to hear the victim’s point of view. The mix of emotions I felt for that scared little girl who cannot adequately express her emotions now had me crying at my work desk. Thank you so much, Kevin, for all of the wonderful and powerful stories on this episode.
