Originally aired on 15 Nov 2015 Written and directed by Mark Schwahn Starring Elizabeth Hurley, William Moseley, Alexandra Park, Tom Austen, and Jake Maskall My rating: ★★ stars Too much bad, not enough good.
A necessary evil…
A strong series of events that never coalesces into a strong whole. But changing viewing practices may render the issue of episode construction moot.
A season featuring brilliantly-layered characters and masterful storytelling continues. Plus, sex (threesome) and violence (beheading).
New characters and new situations hamper season finale.
Episode reveals complex characterization and subtle storytelling.
The themes of the instability of circumstances and of the importance of the perception of power connect thoughtful, complex, character-driven scenes and engrossing conflicts.
