    This new season has been incredible. '408' might have been the best episode in the whole series. Total fucking heartbreak.

    Yeah, that's a staple of their format. It's always great when the two sides of the story are so wildly different, though.

    Yea they need to work hard to close that loop in the finale.

    They just got renewed for a 5th and final season. That should be interesting.

    Yea we didn't see that coming. I'm still in disbelief that the plane scene happened as depicted. You very rarely see something like that happen and the woman not taken seriously. I think Alison's POV in that episode is skewed as well as her POV in the second half of the last episode. Funny how neither of Alison's POV matched what Ben described to Noah and Cole. Either way this is going to be some finale.

    Well that season finale was a bit of a letdown.

    Yeah, I actually said out loud "wait, that was the finale?" It feels like we needed one more to get some clearer direction on a few of these angles.

    Where Cole is going re: Ben? That beach scene of him staring daggers through him was clearly about more than just the discomfort of Athena's funeral decisions. He obviously still feels Ben murdered Alison.

    We never got anywhere else on Noah's relationship with Janelle.

    Vic is clearly going to die, so why not have him actually die to parallel Alison's death? It would have made the meeting of the minds between Noah and Helen that much more powerful, no?

    I guess it's designed to be a super cliffhanger, but it wasn't as powerful as it could have been.

    There would have been plenty left. The Cole/Ben collision course, Noah being torn between Janelle (and Anton) and getting back together with Helen (and his kids, who hate him), and the aftermath of Alison's death and how it has affected everything. Especially Joanie.

    Right, but now we still need Vic to die, we'll suffer his awful parents between now and then, the slutty pregnant neighbor, etc.
