Bursting the bubble
9 December 2013 | by PlaybahnoshSee all my reviews

This episode now ranks second on my Worst Finales Ever list, just after Dexter's finale. Full of giant plot holes, rushed script and no closure whatsoever. The laziest, most abysmal writing of all episodes so far in this series. Considering all the past seasons, it doesn't make any sense that person to be Red John. The "big reveal" was a flimsy fizzle and the "epic chase" was ridiculous. There is no payoff, no closure, no nothing.

Maybe the writers pulled one over us and this was not the real Red John, and they plan to bring him back later. Maybe. But if they really ended this plot here, it was the most horrible way to do it. I do see why the creators had to shake things up. It makes sense since the story was getting really stale, the series did need some fresh blood and direction. But doing it this way was a bad idea. Let's hope this shocker pays off in the long run, because if it doesn't, it will cause the demise of one of the best series in TV right now...
