Come on...
18 November 2013 | by olmacSee all my reviews

No spoilers so not really giving a "why" to my thoughts.

I personally thought ending was a cop-out by being weak. This final episode jumped all over the place, suggesting an end then quickly changing circumstances. Direction changed so many times I got whiplash. Person A gets caught - escapes - gets caught - gets killed. Person B is killed - no, they're OK - no, they're dead. Person C is dead - no alive. Person D is going to get caught - no, avoided capture - going to get caught again - escapes again - caught - escapes (really - check it out). It's like one of those spinning wheels at the carnival - where will it stop? When time runs out, call it over.
