Hang in there. We'll get through this.

Meanwhile, I am trying to track down that soundtrack when the ship is taking them to Castle Blackspire. Yet again, another super series of songs.

Another stellar season.  I never read the books, are they flying without a net at this point?  Or are they still following the books?

I hate to say it, but this episode sort of fell flat for me. I think there was too much jumping between scenes and locations. They could have also cut out the librarian portions and not have lost anything. I think they should have fully embraced the musical theme and used it throughout all aspects of the episode, not just Margo's scenes. Even when they were doing it, I just wasn't getting the same vibe as I did from last season. It didn't feel like it belonged, even with the set up of her getting high from the lizard. It didn't feel as fully thought out and integrated as the one from last season. 

Still love Summer Bishil though :x

This show fell apart for me. The wait was too long. I will try again when I have some more time. Loved the first couple of seasons.

Finally got to watch it last night.  They should have made it a fill Margot episode and pushed an the other plot lines to next week.

The episode felt very disjointed.

It was an odd episode. They are going for a few parallel plots, and trying for equal time for each while also being creative with the musical bits.

But I still enjoy this show.

oh yeah, for sure, a disjointed episode of this show is still better than most of the other stuff i see on TV.  

I actually have grown to enjoy (empathize with, more than like?) almost every character in this show, and that's pretty rare for me.

Watched the Finale last night (DVR). I thought the musical piece in this episode was VERY well done, on par, if not better than Under Pressure, and much better than the one a few weeks ago.
 

Spoiler

 

Surprised to find out that Q is really dead and that Jason Ralph is leaving the show.

To be honest, he was never my favorite character, but did do a good job in being the center from which all the other characters & stories could spiral out and then bring them back together when needed. 

 

I look forward to seeing how the next season carries on.

It really was an emotional and entertaining finale. And I agree, THAT character leaving the show isn't a huge loss to me. But he really has been an integral part of the main cast in keeping the story going up to this point. But I can see it progressing along just fine without him, though a historic reference point how dangerous magic can be to anyone.

This show keeps on going.  Great season, great finale, I just wish they had given Elliot more screen time in the final episode.

Finale tore my heart out and stomped on it. So I went back and started watching the show from the beginning. So many callbacks to S1 in those last few eps. They really brought things full circle.

This is a top five show for me. It continually surprises me. It is, dare I say it, magic.

Been reading a bit on reddit, and apparently the writers are getting a lot of backlash for the finale there and on facebook.

WTF is wrong with people?

I guess it's the internet so i should just expect this stuff.
