Best episode of the season. It might actually prove a decent season by the end.

The plot is still too complicated though. I found it really difficult to understand who the girl they were trying to rescue was and what connection the diamonds have to the main plot.

Five days to respond and all you could muster was copying what I said to you in another thread. Meh, why bother.

Feel the same way concerning the girl and not sure at all where the blue diamonds fit it. I thought it was due to watching the show in the company of loud talkers.

There are too many threads, and unlike in season 1 there isn't one main antagonist (in that case the Yellow King) to connect them.

I think we know too little about the bad guys to really have a sense of what's coming or if we should even fear them.

I wonder if the Mexicans Frank was dealing with are in some way linked to the shady goings on, or if they're just side menaces.

That was intense, no other way to put it. They really didn't give Vaughn's character enough depth, though. I get that there are people who never show emotion in real life, but it doesn't play well for a show. They just wrote him two one-dimensionally, hiding behind his tropes no matter what's going on.

I still want to know how they got at the wanna-be Attorney General. [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Clearly she was talking to someone, somewhere about what was going on, or she was cataloging everything as it went and the spooks who set things up in the tunnel were monitoring enough to catch onto it. I had the feeling it wasn't going to just be sewn up neatly when Farrell arrived to meet her, but it feels like they're getting pretty sloppy to try and pin something like that on him just to get him in the open so they can take him out later.

Speaking of the spooks, I'm still not clear as to what the discussion was about our now deceased detective having one of the others look into it. As to the shooter who got him outside of the door, I'm assuming that was the same cop who was watching him while he was in the archives earlier in the episode?


I feel like there's a lot of little stuff that I'd have to go back and watch the season again to catch. I will say that for it being such a big conspiracy, it's overall pretty believable. These last two episodes and the shootout before the time skip were definitely the best of the season.

This was the first episode where I actually cared about Paul Woodrugh. [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Wouldn't you know it, it's also the episode where they off him. I was actually shocked and saddened to see him die, especially considering he was the only detective who hadn't been burned by the corrupt powers

his death couldn't have been more obvious. I was actually getting annoyed because it wasn't happening. Although, i thought the person to do it was gonna be that black dude who he (incomprehensibly) didn't kill.

You initially had your doubts, but thought he was home free after he made it through the final door, just like everyone else. No one expected gremlin-face guy to be hiding in the shadows, Mouth.

When he got to that final door, i thought he was gonna catch one of the head like Leo did when the elevator door opens in 'The Departed'. So yeah, i was wrong several times about the when.

i definitely didn't expect it to be that guy, but i knew it would happen.

Don't ever question me again, tart.

LOL.


I know that feel. I thought I was just having issues with the names, but I guess I wasn't crazy for barely knowing who anyone was by name. The whole thing with the crow mask and the guy being a nutjob, how big the conspiracy was, how it 'came together' at the end, the final scene walking in Venezuela, it was just too much. It was also too little. The resolution with the reporter was weak, how Farrell acted after leaving the school and getting to the car didn't feel right, the always there chick playing her mood rock was finally too much and added nothing, and it felt like they added new holes for no reason. And how dafuq does this black bag, working with trained killers cop not notice the fking stranger in a dark black hoodie sitting on the other side of a bench while he openly discusses murder?

It was nice to see Vaughn actually getting to act a bit in the desert, but I don't believe he really would have jumped that stupid in the home stretch, nor do I believe that after being in hiding and on no one's radar, that when he comes up to make two stops that his 'old friends' get onto them the way they did. I certainly don't believe that he would have been so dumb as to get trapped like that.

What's crazy is that I feel a two hour twenty minute movie could have put this together and sewn it all up more neatly than this entire season. The show definitely peaked the last two weeks, then took a nosedive with the finale. I feel like the show should have started with the shoot out episode and ended last week. Leaving it at that may have just barely left more holes than this episode did, but at least it would have gone out strong.

this season, IMHO has been horrible... too many stories going on at once.. the time change.. etc.. the story even was bad....

if hbo does a third season then they better recall what made the first season great

Well the first season had a time change, so that really wasn't an issue.

The finale saved the season.

They played on the emotions throught and it seemed they would actually make it out unscathed.

Season 1 as a bar is too high of a standard to go by. When I watch the first season it is perfection from the beginning to the end.

I'm actually gonna watch this entire season over again. Maybe it will be more satisfying and cohesive when binge-watched in it's entirety.

I like how the [SPOILER - highlight to read]: prediction from the beginning of episode 3 came true for Velcoro

I feel like this is the only episode that made real use of the California setting with the redwoods and the desert.

What no one saw, the ending being: [SPOILER - highlight to read]: Vaughn's widow and McAdams hooking up to raise Farrel's bastard as a lesbian couple in Venezuela.
