This has to be amongst the worst season finales I have ever seen.

It was clear that they knew the series was to be cancelled and wanted to tie up all loose ends but how they went about it was just dire.

This was just a series of depressing events each leaving you asking why??

I can understand long tall Susan finally going to the gallows to pay for her previous crimes in earlier seasons and telling Captain Jackson that he is not to try and save her again so their child has one parent to raise him. But why then kill him off screen needlessly after sending him and Connor off to America to start a new life for themselves.

Again I can understand after their wedding Mathilda and Drummond leaving Whitechappel to raise their unborn child away from the city but why as she is entering the cab would Matihilda happily say to Drummond that her father would not come and visit them and the child ever because he can't leave the city. This is his only daughter that he spent so long in trying to find.

Just as you think the one slight hope of any form of happy ending might be in the form of Edmund and Mimi forming some sort of friendship after all they have lost this is then dashed when she tells him that she is going to the ball of a man who wishes to marry her but clearly she does not feel the same.

Into all this is spliced flashbacks of Edmund recalling incidents around the final ripper murder involving himself, Drake and Abberline.

All this finally concludes with Reid at his desk as the new year bells toll as he starts work once more.

While I do not expect any sort of happy Hollywood ending ultimately I was left with a feeling of why and was there any need regarding characters we have seen grow and grown to love over the seasons.

All in all very disappointed.
