I like it too, though it was better (I think) when they were using the visions for more than a footnote.
I also just figured out why I was so confused last night. There were 3 episodes left, not 4. The return was actually a week ago on the 20th. I couldn't figure out when it was that Eli and Maggie slept together. Must have been in that episode I missed. Hmm. Time to hit the torrent sites.
