Happy i got a conclusion but not happy that it couldn't be a dark more unexpected one :P
19 May 2015 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

So the series is over ,, not the way i expected it or more precisely I hoped it to end, but overall it was a good ending for an amazing show.

So i'm not trying to be cynical but i think the series finale should'v been more dark ... i don't know ,, but in this period and for such shows , a happy ending where everyone with a lead role should live happily ever after doesn't play out properly . Okay the ending for Theo was kinda vague but still i think from the point of view of "consequences matter" and with a sense of surprise some one should have died or badly disfigured like Mike or Max or even Rayan but not even a scratch !!! it reminds me of Steven Seagal's movies where he kills everybody and he lives like a hero,, come on people !! such a Hit series needed a decent explosive ending ..

and in the final scene ,, they showed us how the personality of Hardy changes and how killing a human being become easy for him but still was not enough for me to be satisfied.

As a series ... overall ... loved it so much... there were a lot of thrilling and WOWzer moments (a lot of those in the 1st and 2nd seasons and a couple in the third ) and few static ones ... i'm happy it ended which gave me kinda conclusion but still not a satisfying one :P
