Confronting Maryann and setting things up for the third season
30 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As we come to the concluding episode of the season it is time for the showdown between Maryann and those planning to stop her from raising the god Dionysus. Jason and Andy have armed themselves and plan to kill her, Bill and Sam have another plan which the viewer isn't told about until it is put in to operation… and I won't spoil it here. Once Maryann is defeated the townsfolk are freed from her possession but have no idea what they have done; some of them have a few wacky theories though! Most of them are happy not knowing, Eggs however is determined to find out what he has done, something he will surely regret when he learns the awful truth.

This was a decent conclusion to the season although Maryann was defeated rather early in the episode; I kept wondering if she was going to return but she didn't. The way she was defeated wasn't a total surprise but it was effective. The remainder of the episode was not without excitement though, including one real shock when a character was killed! I look forward to seeing the next season although it is a pity that the excellent Michelle Forbes won't be featuring again. The ending was certainly a 'To be continued…' moment so I hope it isn't too long before the next season airs here.
