    The episode ends with Alicia smiling at something across the water, looking very happy. We know who is across the water, but the episode end there, without letting us see what she sees, as if it's some cliff-hanger or tension point.

    The writers were hoping for all of the perceived appeal of a cliff hanger BUT with none of the background/leg work in the episode to make the cliffhanger actually significant. Really forced, uninspired ending imo. Like "ohh I saw LOST one time... I know how to end it..."

    That wasn't even a cliffhanger, we know who was there. Maybe they will totally surprise us, but I doubt it.

    I don't think the ending was meant to be a cliffhanger since we all knew who was there on the other side of the water...so it's only weak if you think it was a cliffhanger :p:p

    And this sums up the failures that are these show runners. They can't tell a story. You nailed it, they set up a "surprise" yet we all know what will be revealed. If we all know, what's the point of setting up the reveal?

    The only shocking moment in this season was Nick dying and there was no real setup for that. Meanwhile they setup all kinds of potential twists and turns only to have every single one of them fall flat.
