Poor season's finale
24 March 2021 | by francogrexSee all my reviews

This was a huge disappointment. Who wrote this really? It seems very much inconsistent with the previous episodes. It's sad to see this nice series degrading that fast. I hope they will pick it up in the coming seasons, I will watch and see.
