    Yeah, one of the best finales I've seen in a while. Really, this whole season was such a thrill ride.

    One of the few shows where season 2 has thoroughly outdone season 1. There are quite a few moments of suspended disbelief, but I can't wait for season 3.

    Same. I love that they've found a really nice thread to sew between the end of season one, all of season two and probably all of season three.

    I also think and underrated positive to this year is that they added Cole and Helen as POV characters. It made Noah and Allison no longer the only central part of the show, even though they are still the two most important characters.

    Impressive premiere. I love the jump forward in time with Noah's character being so broken down like this.

    I thought it started this Sunday, but missed the show because of the Rangers game. I then went to Showtime on demand and there were 2 episodes and episode 2 dealt with Helen and Allison.

    On Demand often has the next episode ahead of cable.

    There's no way half of what's happening this season isn't Noah completely hallucinating. IMO he's taking more Vicodin than they're letting on and like House did years ago, he's effectively having a total breakdown. Doesn't know up from down, left from right, or real from not.

    This also makes you wonder if he is hallucinating that the prison guard is really following him. Maybe he inflicted the wound to himself also

    The stab wound? Considering the sound of the door opening and the footsteps you could clearly hear along with the look of fear on his face but never actually turning around and compound that with the car crash scene, I could see that being the twist.

    Absolutely. I actually said to my wife earlier this season that's my working theory.

    Well that season finale was a fucking waste of time. I got the purpose of it but man, what a snooze fest.

    This was a weak season overall. Some great story-telling happened, but the consistency was horrible, and they jumped all over the place.

    Agreed. There wasn't a lot of flow from week to week.

    That said, I'm glad it was renewed for another season. I'm really hoping they can tie things up nicely with one more year. I can't imagine it'll go for another beyond that.

    Honestly after that episode where else do they even have to go? Everything was pretty much tied up from what I can remember of the last 2 or 3 episodes. Maybe Helen actually confesses to Mrs Lockhart and they go down that road?
