What do you want most in the Finale?

(Let's just assume that 'a third season' has been said)

Me, I want to know whether Jonas was a good guy, bad guy or double/triple/whatever agent. There's something that makes me think he's *not* on the side of our cluster.

What about you? Would love to hear from all of you, regular posters and lurkers alike!

I am terrified this special will be too short to get the emotional catharsis we all love.

So what I want most are earned moments of joy, sadness, humor, beauty, and closure for the main 8, without anything feeling forced and shoehorned in.

I know we're beyond lucky to get even another mediocre episode, but it seems 2 hours won't be enough. I have faith they can do it, but it's a huge challenge.

I'd like some kind of solid explanation as to why BPO is hunting Sensates and how they pose a threat. I wasn't too convinced by what has already been put on the table. I guess much of it will come down to Whispers and his back story.

I'd also like less montages set to uplifting music.

I'm honestly a bit fearful that the whole finale will be a bit of a rushed mess. I hope JMS has at least had some input in terms of notes and his general 'plan' for the arc has been respected.

I re-watched The Matrix recently and it's still a really fun film, but it really got me thinking about how the Ws have been coasting on the same central idea for the best part of two decades. I still feel like the central premise of the show is great, but has been diluted with too many characters and is trying to spin too many narrative plates.

Anyway... curious to see it when it lands.

No one else?!? Come on people? Others must have some thoughts, wishes, opinions, hopes, fears...

Hope? I kind of agree about the speeches and music thing. I admit I fast forwarded through some of that. I saw it as necessary to keep the show popular...

Mostly, if we only have one episode left, let it explain as much as possible keeping our folks as intact as possible. Maybe with room for some spinoffs?

I remember reading "More Than Human" by Theodore Sturgeon. It made quite an impression on my college-age mind. I kind of wish the series could have used more of this kind of group mind than fight scenes and the like. I assumed they were building up to something like that. There won't be time, now.

I kinda fear it may suffer in the same way the Xmas special did. I am not confident we'll get any of that depth without a season long arc. I thought S2 was a bit tighter in terms of narrative than S1, there was less 'fluff'. I'm a bit miffed JMS wasn't involved, as he's the one that really excels at long for narratives on TV. I expected to see some of the character put through the wringer and undergo profound change that we might not have expected.

I have the distinct feeling I'm not going to be too into the finale, but I will try not to pre-judge until I've sat down and watched it. Happy we're getting it, but I am approaching with caution.
