***Spoiler added because this post jumped to the next page***



I'll say the last "season" just became more and more claustrophobic, characters and options going away, increasingly focused on wherever the Byrde's were going or forced to go. I can think of another series that ended up fading to black, leaving huge questions. I'm happy with both.

Glad it’s over.

I didn’t watch the whole thing but caught pieces as my wife watched it. What a shit show.

Think Ruth got paid by the F word cause she threw it a lot.

The end of the show. It died a natural death, as it should. Like many others, it was running out of ideas.

Expectations not met.

Little disappointing, at least for me.

It was always a show about families, just like The Sopranos and other mafia- or cartel- stories. The Byrdes started as a family and ended as a family. And although Marty loved Ruth, she ended up with her family as well...

I absolutely lived the last words of the show...

Mel - "The world doesn't work like that."
Wendy - "Since when?"

Boom.

Finished it last week. I enjoyed it for its entertainment value. And that's all... Smile

I was let down by the ending.

I finished it last night, I had hoped for a better Ruth outcome...like maybe Jonah and Charlotte had gotten word to Ruth through Rachel ,texted the cat was out of the bag and (Ruth) was armed for the ambush.Cut to a scene of Ruth tamping down the sand,"here's where the fuckin' hot tub goes" But alas it was not to be.

The ending was…ok. It was still better than The Sopranos or Game of Thrones.

i thought it ended pretty well. Sad about Ruth but at the same time, it brought just one more element of surprise which was great about this series.

In the end though, Marty and Wendy Byrde are just plain horrible people. No two ways around that.

And they certainly corrupted their kids. Especially the boy as we see.

I thought the ending was appropriate. It didn't make me happy, but it made sense.

I was really hoping they'd get what they had coming.

Should've known better.

I was also craving a sense of justice. The day I watched the final episode, I had to keep reminding myself that these were all fictional characters. I was pissed at the writers. I eventually acknowledged their creativity--I wasn't even close to predicting the end--but I felt let down as a big fan of the show. How does a writer create a character, who I'm confident became the favorite of most people who watched the show, and kill her? I guess I'm just getting old--I only want happy endings now.

Agreed, one has to wonder if the show had second thoughts after the fact. Still --

Once Ruth decided to carry out her revenge and went through with it, her ticket was punched. That was the price of her getting her reprisal. She accepted that when she was warned what might happen to her, and in the end when faced with the consequence of her choice, she still said she had no regrets about it.

The lesson is simple, we all must eventually answer for our bad deeds.

Well, unless you're the Byrds of course Wink

I thought the ending was good. The entire system was corrupt with the FBI and the Byrds being no better or worse than the Cartel. The last scene with Mel summed it up nicely. Sad about Ruth but she well knew who she was screwing with and was warned. She was true to herself to the very end.
