End Song– “Devil’s Waiting” by Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

Final Thoughts:

Hell on wheels goes to hell literally as the town and its people smolder. The show has proven that no one is safe and in epic sadness we lose two big characters (Toole/Lily). Briefly Lily became Emily Thorne from Revenge and The Swede sure did like look like Dexter. The ending left me wondering what will happen to Cullen the man who has lost so much. What does he have to live for now? Revenge of the Swede who I presume is alive?

The show has had declining ratings but I do hope this is not the last I will write of the show that has grown on me so much over these two seasons of great drama. And thank you to everyone that reads these recaps weekly I have truly enjoyed recapping this one and hope to do the same with “The Walking Dead”.

Ratings: Up 0.1 to a 0.5 demo with 2.18 million viewers.

What did you think of the epic finale?
