The End
25 August 2019 | by cpotato1010See all my reviews

Apparently CBS has decided to make this the series finale.

I am not sure if they ever filmed what would have been the two remaining episodes, or if they did, will they ever be shown?

This show, like so many other would-be police procedural, suffered from too many distractions from the main plot, which left the whole show less interesting.

At least they were able to close out the serial-killer arc last week, so we don't have that as an unresolved cliff-hanger.

Addendum - while they did wrap up this episode's case, there were hints at a larger conspiracy, possibly terrorist, at work.

If they had two more episodes, this may have been further developed.

I am not sure if the last five minutes were originally part of this episode, or if the producers were told to take them from what would have been the ending of episode 13. It did make a nice wrap for the series.
