Feeding the Rat

What is going on with this schizophrenic season? We've gone from last week's disappointing placeholder of an episode to something almost excellent (but not quite) this week. Is it a sign that this confused third season has finally found its footing, or that the pattern of one episode that's "on" and one episode that's seriously, seriously "off" is merely continuing?

*This post has been corrected to change the character name "Morehouse" to "Stonehouse." It had been incorrectly printed as "Morehouse" in the CBS press notes for the episode.
