I did not really like the way this series was ended. None of the big conflicts were resolved. The series as a whole was very good, however.
Worst Ending I have ever seen in a series!
Throughout the series i enjoyed watching this unique and original drama, and though my favorite season (season 4) got a lot of criticism, i thought season 5 would at least tie all loose ends. Instead, the finale was inconclusive, incomplete and devoid of power and meaning. Yes some characters got some redemption but most did not even get a final scene, so we'll never know what happened to them ..so these characters we have been watching technically have NO ENDING! As for the main character getting what he deserves in the end ..is fitting …what is not fitting is how it happens and or why.. truly leaving you questioning a lot this ending did not live up to the series.
Its poor writing when things get left messy and in the air, and its even worst when its explained with ineffective scenes, because of this and the lack of resolution with so many story lines the ending did not deliver and i find it insulting to the viewer that this is the send off we got to see.
Most of the season was excellent however, so final grade of the season A-
Final grade on the Finale, F
This season was amazing. Just enough of everything. They didn't bore you with too much politics or non-stop gabbing. The actors exceeded my expectations, they were so believable. You see everyone in this season for what they are, what they want. So many twists! And the ending is just incredible. So sad to see this show end, it was such a nice peek into polygamy. I'm so glad I decided to buy this last season.
