Yep, there’s a photo of him sitting next to Amos at the final bar scene. It almost looks like they used a still photo of him for the death scene and just CGI’d some blood in.

That would make sense considering how abrupt it appeared to be. Also agree with the above about the usage of Bobbi's character.

Anybody notice that this premiered couple days ago? Final season.

Still in set up mode, so not much to report. Effects are strong as always, acting not strong as always. There are a few good actors on the show but they just aren't on screen long enough because they are jumping all over the place to remind everyone where the characters are.

I watched it on Thursday night when it came out. It was a good, typical season opener for the show. Fit the template that they've been doing for them. I wish it had a little more meat though since they only have 6 episodes for this season. I'm hoping things don't get rushed/glossed over due to it like what happened to GoT at the end.

How the heck did I miss the start of this?!? Thanks for the post.

Sad that there’s only one episode left. This season has been solid, not spectacular. Still one of the best sci fi shows going today.

Agreed. I do think they seriously mishandled this season, though. If you're only doing this many episodes in the final season, don't try to wedge in as much of the books as possible, as there's no way that can come to a complete, satisfying ending so quickly. Just focus on the existing arc and close it out well. So some of this season has dragged, wasting time on a story line that will move beyond hyperspeed to be completed in one episode. Ah well.

Welp.

Spectacular space battles and a bit anticlimactic. But I was most surprised by the amount of open ended plots that happened at the end. In a lot of ways it didn't feel like the end of the series, as they left it open for further episodes. Maybe this is to keep the door open for book continuation -- or even more interesting - a possible movie finale?

There had been some talk of movie(s) to finish off the series. I really hope it happens since I'd love more of the show and they really have 3 more books that they could cover. So let's hope we do. The show was still going strong quality wise.

I noticed they changed the listing to say season finale now, instead of series finale after the final episode came out.

Exactly. A big WTF from me as well. Without spoiling, I will say that the books went on well past where the story ended already.

I agree with you guys. I thought it was quite the whimper of a series finale. Overall, this was probably the worst season out of the 6. However, it’s still an enjoyable show and they definitely left open some story lines. Hopefully there’s more to come.

You thought it was the worst season? I'd give that to season 5 by a pretty good margin. There's plenty of issues with S6 but it corrected some of what bogged down S5 and overall was better.

Yeah, season 5 was head and shoulders above this season in my mind.
