That finale was incredible!!!! Seriously this was one of the best breakout hits of the season along with HTGAWM, Jane The Virgin, and Empire. The cast is incredible. Grant Gustin worked his adorkable ass off and I'm so proud of him. He has this quality that makes you feel like you know him personally and watching him succeed is like watching a friend succeed, hence the pride. Tom Cavanaugh and Jesse Martin have also been incredible this season. I was on an emotional roller coaster the entire time and they had a grip on me until the very last second. All the heart to hearts had me sobbing on the inside. Barry and Joe scenes are easily one of my favorite parts of the show. Barry and his father, that last speech damn near had me in the fetal position ugly crying (if I did that). Barry and eobard and their conversation was just as heart warming in a twisted way. He truly did care about Barry. Eobard clearly also cared about Cisco too but I laughed hysterically at that whole "Not sorry for killing you because I probably had a good reason " bit. Lol! Barry and Iris' heartfelt talk was just as moving. I love them. I love their relationship and friendship and I can imagine how difficult it was choosing between saving his mother and giving up the family and closeness that he has with Iris and Joe, because it wouldn't have been the same. Iris, I notice catches a lot of flack, and I don't think it's all that fair to be honest, but I love her relationship with Barry in any and all of its stages. I can feel that they are close when onscreen together so that rooftop scene was sweet and honest. If there is a way for Victor Garber to be in every episode from here on out I would kiss someone . I LOVE him as Stein. Ronnie has grown on me as well, even though the Ronnie and Caitlin wedding seemed misplaced like it didn't fit in with everything going on. Was it necessary? Couldn't it have been next season. That's the only thing that took me out of the finale. I'm not a comic book geek but I know about Cisco and vibe and I'm excited to see how they deal with that. I love Cisco. I also have to rewatch the episode to see the wormhole bit because I didn't catch much the first time around. I was probably still recovering from a uh allergy attack or dust or something from Barry calling Joe dad. Eddie. My darling eddie broke my heart. I wasn't ready to lose pretty Ricky. He's especially had the chance to show his range as an actor later on in the season. I'll miss him. The scenes with him and Iris were amazing. They too have a great chemistry. I'm so sad about Eddie. I truly did like him. The after effects of his death will be felt next season. I can already imagine it. Flawless finale for a fantastic show.
Not surprised. I never thought it would last this long. I watched faithfully and kicked myself for it every time when I wasn't already busy yelling at the tv and throwing the remote. The Following always felt like a miniseries that somehow ended up being extended repeatedly. Not so much that can be done without coming across redundant. Hope the best for the actors.
This didn't feel like the penultimate season finale episode. I don't even know what to expect for the season finale. And not in an OMG what's going to happen next way, but a...let me read the last few reviews because what even was the main plot point of this season? I mean, I get it, take down Command Yada yada, but it felt like a season of one offs outside of the bring back Olivia Pope bit. Susan Ross is like my favorite. She's so precious and she's a do-gooder and it's just refreshing. I find her so refreshing. I love her. She's been a highlight of the season. I didn't mind the rape storyline. It's serious issue and good on them for addressing it. I felt it wasn't given enough service though. It wasn't fleshed out as much as it should have been because it was fighting for screentime with Russell being tortured and Mellie. Then it was like they remembered it was an issue so they wrapped it up in the last two minutes with a nice little bow, when it's an issue that's so much more complex than that. Especially in the military. Russell and Jakes scene was probably the most entertaining for me. I loved watching them share their similar stories and mock rowan. The shared distaste expressed over what rowan does to his daughter was interesting. That entire exchange was twisted and amusing. Although I about lost it when Jake complimented Russell and told him he was good. If he was good you'd have been dead after being stabbed a hundred times. If he was good he wouldn't have missed all the major arteries. Like, sorry I'm not convinced that Russell is the cream of the crop, don't say that I can't take y'all seriously. Men profess their love to Olivia and she never knows how to respond to it. How the hell did baby face bright eyes b613 Jr get the jump on Huck? Huck is my guy but he's been slipping on his duties for a while now. I knew that kid was shady, mainly because he so often plays weird or shady. I don't really care about Mellie and foxtail and rowan. I don't know what this is all about but I'm not interested enough to be on th e edge of my seat. Cyrus cracked me up with his "put her back" like Susan brought home a lost puppy or a baby doll. Or stole a candy bar and now her dad is forcing her to return it. Cyrus "I'm too old for this ish and these bad ass children I work with Beene"
