The final episode of this first season is chocked full of surprises for just about every major character including -
- a very surprising abortionist
- a treatment for a mental ailment that's like pulling teeth - literally
- Thackery is dead wrong about a major treatment - and misses the true treatment, in the words of another character, "by a mile"
- there's a flat out and satisfying murder for hire
- a major character gets a brutal beat down
- there's a new medication - a cure - which is worse than the illness
Don't know if I'll have any advance screeners of this fine series next season, but I'll back here with reviews in any case. Enjoy the winter!
