Storyline

In the cliff-hanging season finale, Samson devises a grand plan by scheming with Ben, Jones, and the entire troupe to lure Brother Justin to Carnivale for his confrontation with Ben. Meanwhile, Stroud wants to protect Justin who correctly suspects that the carnival is setting a trap for him. Sofie finds herself locked in a dark shed after she tells Justin her conflicted thoughts about where her loyalties lay, and soon becomes terrorized by ghostly visions of her mother. Rita Sue is touched by Samson's generosity of giving her the money needed to pay off Stumpy's loan shark. Later, the final confrontation approaches when Brother Justin persuades Iris to overcome her fear of heights by riding the Carnivale Ferris Wheel where Jones traps both of them in for Ben to drain Justin's powers, and Ben performs his most important healing of Reverend Balthus, leading to Ben and Justin finally meeting face-to-face, and the visions of Ben and Justin coming full circle.

Season 2- as a season finale great, as an ending bad
11 February 2016 | by (england) – See all my reviews

I was gonna give this a 10 but since their are no more episodes I am shocked to say the least, this show was amazing, the characters, the acting, the mythology etc...... I enjoyed the episode but it seems like only 1 chapter of the story has been told, to this day I still don't understand why this show was cancelled, I read in an article that Daniel knauf, the creator intended to have 13/16 episodes in this season and that their were supposed to be 6 seasons, SIX!!! I really liked this show and as a viewer, who has watched all 24 episodes deserves some sort of closure here in the form of a graphic novel, mini series or even a MOVIE to wrap it all up, its all I want, I heard that deadwood got revived as a movie recently which means that this show should get one as well! anyways im gonna miss this show and I hope for more in the future so my vote is 8, it would have been 10 but cancellation hurts it.
