Missing Series Finale Review: Lost and Found

by at . Comments

Well, it's been quite an intense ride. To be honest, I wasn't sure how Missing was going to end since the finale was shot before the news of the cancellation came about, so I spent much of "The Rain on the Evil and on the Good" holding my breath.

One thing I was pretty sure of, and I was right, was that in the finale Becca would be doing every single thing possible to get her son back. She was ready to go to lengths she hadn't gone to before.

Becca's Last Effort

I was so relieved when Becca got Dax on the phone. I've mentioned before that if these two could finally get onto the same page and really trust each other that they could make a lot of headway. It took 10 episodes, but they did.

It's clear that Violet had messed with Dax's head a lot. Things got to a boiling point on this finale. First, Dax put himself on the line to bust Paul out of jail. I love that after everything Becca had been through, she still insisted Michael be rescued by both parents. Paul may have faked his death and just resurfaced days ago, but he was crucial in protecting Michael behind the scenes and he is still his father.

As far as things getting to a boiling point, a person can only be pushed so far before he/she breaks and it was clear that Becca was hitting her limit with her patience. When Violet tried to break free and Dax and Paul tried to coax information out of her, I knew a torture situation was coming. Holy crap, was that some speech Becca delivered. Violet may not have believed Becca would go through with it, but I didn't hesitate for a second. Becca is a mother bear protecting her cub.

Meanwhile, Michael was getting suspicious and I was gearing up for him and Oksana to make a run for it. Finally, everything came to a head and when Michael and Becca spotted each other I let out a huge exhale and tears welled up in my eyes. These tears were let out in heaving sobs and hour later on the Grey's Anatomy finale, but I digress. It was a beautiful Winstone family reunion and Martin Newman was no more.

Personally, I wish that after the producers knew the show had been cancelled, that they went back in and edited out the last scene of Becca getting kidnapped. Now that there is no second season it would've been good to just end things on a happy note. After all, how often do we get a happy ending on TV these days? I really enjoyed the ride that Missing took us on with it's phenomenal cast and intriguing storyline. What did you all think? Hit the comments!

Please don't cancel this show!!!!! I loved watching this and would like to look forward to Thursday Nights again. I have been waiting all summer for it to begin again. I never once watch Scandals, but my family and friend all watched missing.

I agree! Very disappointed this show was canceled. I knew so many people that loved this show and you should bring it back!

Tell me it isn't so! My husband who rarely watches TV would actually be anxious to see the next episode of this show. This is a huge mistake. ABC bring it back!

I'm with the others. I cannot believe ABC were stupid enough to cancel Missing. It was brilliant and had everything; Mystery, intrigue, violence, and great acting. Ashley Judd is cool. Please bring it back!

ABC..........you have so missed the mark! The MISSING series had everything going for it, actors, story line, mystery, excitement etc. I can't believe you have cancelled this show. I also agree that the reality shows are taking over too many prime time hours. Please consider bringing this back. Very disappointed : (

I LOVED LOVED LOVED this show. I cannot get over the fact that it has been cancelled. I do however agree, if they knew they were going to cancel it they should have edited Becca's disappearance out.

OMG,I just read this and cannot believe it. Missing was 1 of my favorite shows last year, even my 12 year old son watched it every week. I am so sick of all of those reality shows, they are just crap. This one kept you hanging, ABC I am very sad you are doing this.
