Finale was a layer of bullshiat frosting on a rather lackluster overall season.   It's sad that Brody died, sad HOW he died, but more importantly, in killing off one very critical character, and severing the dynamics of a few others (Saul leaving the CIA, confirmed essential removal of Brody's family from the show, etc) they've now written themselves into a corner that basically has them starting from scratch next year.

You aren't George Martin, guys.   Killing Ned Stark only works because so many other rather important stories are going on.   But with this finale, exactly what do you think folks are going to tune in for?   The Carrie and Quinn show?   The Saul's restless and wants to go back to work schtick?

Good luck.   You'll need it.

Brody had to go, unfortunately.  Involving him any more would have taken on Gilligan's-Island like silliness.  I was surprised he survived last season.

Anyone know about the contract lengths for him and Saul?  It could be like Downton Abbey where they all get killed off because they quit.

Next year they can have a fresh start and try and bring the things that made the first season so great without worrying about tying up plotlines.

Mad_Radhu: lus it seemed kind of odd that everything was so ad-hoc with the crane. You'd figure that they'd have a more permanent gallows set up considering that they lead the world in executions.

Don't google it, but if you had you wouldn't think that.  I think the crane method is very common, and brutal.

Just watched it. Not sure I'll watch next season. They killed off the only real reason to watch, which leaves the other reasons to watch no reason to be on the show.

brigid_fitch: AHS: Coven SPOILERS:
I'm guessing Queenie didn't survive since Marie showed up at the Coven by herself.  Shame--what a wasted part for that actress.  Queenie had such potential, esp. when she started bonding w/Delphine and taking her racist ass down a few notches.  But then she turns her over to Marie?  Bah.  Such a good subplot, ruined.  I guess the writers realized that and had Queenie teach Delphine's disembodied head about Civil Rights but it's not the same.

This is COVEN we're talking about. Some swamp mud and some Stevie Nicks and she'll be right as rain in no time.

FeedTheCollapse: very good finale, but it really doesn't make up for how subpar the first 2/3s was. Though a break from the Brody plot could've arguably came earlier in the series, I think next season will be a TV version of Squeeze or Cut the Crap.

Honestly, I thought everyone was being really emo considering that Brody had pretty much been sent there on a suicide mission to assassinate a high ranking government official. I can see everyone sadly resigning themselves to letting what had to be done be done, but the level of feels on display seemed a little much for hardened CIA officials who knew what the stakes were if the mission failed. Carrie is emotionally unhinged to begin with, so I can give her a pass, but people like Saul getting all high and mighty when having to sacrifice a pawn that he personally liked to take the queen seemed a bit of a stretch. You can't get in a position like Saul's without being able to sacrifice some people for the greater good, that's just the sad fact of the matter.

Plus, I understand Carrie being under the protection of their new asset to a certain extent, but it seemed like no one in Terhan was at all suspicious of this whitebread woman wondering around angrily talking to someone on her cell phone. She was making herself so visible, SOMEONE else in their security forces and intelligence should have noticed.
