“Conclusion,” my ass!

But first …

… is there a website that counts the number of deaths in this series? This Wikia page is unconvincing as a tally of the overall body count. I don’t think Breaking Bad had as many deaths. Is this series setting a primetime network TV record?

That first half hour? My own reaction:

They really suck at setting up logistics in this series. Talk, talk, talk. And all of it a snooze-o-rama. This isn’t Speech Class. Get the fuck on with it, as Ken Bruen says.

And this?

This is NBC, for crying out loud. It could end only the way it did. What suspense?

The question I have is, Did they really film in Cuba?

Or is that Miami or New Orleans as a stand-in? The license plate on that new car makes me thinks this was Stateside.

… NBC, stop that shit! We get enough ads like that on the Internet! And you wonder why your audience drops? Look in the mirror — and see your greed.

A welcome Red Moment:

And the perhaps the biggest shock of the entire series …

… Red has been betrayed.

Who was in Cuba was no surprise. But I went back to episode 18

… to confirm that what they revealed here was actually concealed back then. It was. They didn’t create new scenes to try to deceive us about what actually happened.

No. I’m not buying it. At series conclusion, it’ll play out as I’ve said before.

So, for a season finale, which is supposed to make people want to see the next season? No.

The only thing that interests me is how Red deals with his betrayal. He’s not the forgiving type.
