Great finale for season 8 and a very promising season 9
16 May 2013 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

It was a great finale for not such a great - in my opinion- season, comparing to the previous ones... With even more questions raised in the end than the beginning , this series made it possible for us- the fans- to anticipate one more season which i m pretty sure it will be spectacular , given the fact that there are so many questions to be answered and plots to be tied together to a final conclusion, while a new circle begins , with new adventures, new characters and new roles - hopefully- for the existing characters we all loved. Nobody can predict or even begin to imagine what will happen in season 9, we all have some ideas but still...

It s really rare and in the same time amazing for a TV series to keep the viewer clueless for what comes next after 8 years.

★ 9 out of 10 ★
