This story as not as exciting as was the previous story; I will not say that it felt like filler, but it simply was too basic and straightforward compared to last week's story.
In the previous story, Baan mentioned several weaknesses of the members of the Gatewatch: for example, Chandra is impulsive and can easily be provoked into reckless actions, both Jace and Gideon view themselves as the leaders of the group, and none of them fully trust Liliana. Baral exploited Chandra's weakness quite expertly, although Nissa rescued her, thankfully, but no one has yet exploited the other weaknesses that Baan mentioned, so does anyone here imagine that they may eventually be relevant to the story? I can certainly imagine Jace and Gideon clashing over who should be the leader and Liliana being ostracized from the group.

All nissa had to do was believe in herself (and overcome racism), which she already accomplished on zendikar and lorwyn respectively, duuuh!

Part of mitigating the Gideon/Jace weakness is to send Jace on his own special missions so that he and Gideon don't need to have each other's approval for tactics. I also think that we could see Ajani become not only a group mentor (Ajani, Mentor of Heroes) but the group leader. He has a wize voice of reason and more leadership experience than the others.
Nissa and Gideon's care for Chandra was listed as a weakness.
