Votes: 1,058

Rating: 8.9

A final episode which has all the feelings of an overall series finale; at least for the show as we know it. It will leave you shocked, gutted, and just a little frustrated.

For both the story of Alice and the damn-right creepy climax for this seasons killer, the finale may have been better handled as two distinct episodes, allowing for more leeway to explore the depths of each story distinctly.

Despite that observation, the show reaches is most climatic end with a barrage of bullets and some bloody twists - the most traumatic yet.
