Steven Crain: Fear. Fear is the relinquishment of logic, the willing relinquishing of reasonable patterns. But so, it seems, is love. Love is the relinquishment of logic. The willing relinquishing of reasonable patterns. We yield to it or we fight it but we cannot meet it halfway.

Not scary. That's my biggest issue. No real tension, no genuinely scary moments, just an overwinded speech about family togetherness. This show had been really good up until that flop. Sigh. EDIT: having slept on it, I've come to the conclusion that my biggest gripe was the staging.. Mid season, 'Two Storms' especially, was so organic in the way it unfolded. I mean, it's some of the most gripping and natural drama I've seen. The finale, however, lost this incredibly organic and natural flow in place of very staged theatrics. That is, it lost its grittiness and became more like an episode of American Horror Story. Of course, if there's a season 2, I''ll be watching it no questions asked, but I would like the grittiness and organic flow to come back, along with some more scary moments that remain scary.
