I’ve already mentioned my self loathing for reneging on my promise of “one more episode”, only to surprise announce there would actually be TWO more (bad planning on my part), but I actually think it worked out well this way. The two parts of the finale are so vastly different in tone that releasing them together as one episode would have just been weird. In their current form, part 1 is the classic OTT schtick that the series I suppose is known for. Part 2 will be more of an emotional journey mixed with some expected intrigue. This is how I usually pattern my season finales anyway, so I don’t know why I didn’t plan it this way anyway. Needless to say, if you think everything happened in this first part, it didn’t. There’s plenty more to come. AND enough time to give the core characters the proper send off.
Disclaimer: (I hate having to do these). The scenes that bookend the episode aren’t meant to be taken too literally. There are no hidden secrets or easter eggs contained in them. They’re more or less a indication of a possible scenario at one of Jonas Lamont’s industry parties. They aren’t necessary to understand the story.
The reveal as <spoiler> as the killer was important to me because I didn’t want it to be a new character like Denise or Keaton, but rather one that has been around since the beginning. <spoiler> has actually been around since the first episode. I was glad that I could utilize a character with so much history as the villain in the final storyline.
I’ll have more to say next week. Back to editing this bitch.
