Unlike other TV series that leave you at the end of the season with a cliff hanger that makes you eager for the show to return next season, The Glades season two finale did the opposite. It leaves you with a sense of things being okay.
Sure there are a few open questions, but the end leaves you with an understanding of how things are going to be.
I won’t spoil much more than that.
The show itself opens up without the typical whodunit and instead puts that out in the open with the main part being around dealing with a hostage negotiation. Something you probably don’t want Jim Longworth doing because he tends to annoy people. It makes things interesting.
On to upcoming shows.
House trailer implies he’s in prison which is odd because I thought he ended with being on some tropical island somewhere? Interesting…
I have yet to see a trailer for The Mentalist but I can easily see how Patrick Jane would start the series off by being in jail (sure enough, there is a trailer of him in jail however I cannot view it because it’s outside my viewing area… f Canada/US internet content rules). This should be an interesting season with Jane having killed his nemesis, Red John. As I noted previously, I suspect there will be a discovery that Red John was just a murderous dog whose lease was held by a greater mastermind. We’ll see soon! Not exactly a cliffhanger of “Is he going to get him?” but more of a “What now?!” type season ending.
Castle left us with a cliffhanger, several actually. Castle admitted he loved Beckett but will Beckett remember? Will Beckett live? Of course. Who will be the new Captain? Will the Captain put up with having Castle around? Drama between Castle and Beckett’s doctor boyfriend ensues as well. Is the show even going to have a murder case involved at all? Lots of questions!
Hawaii Five-O left us with a cliffhanger too. The team is mostly split up, one is thrown in jail for a murder he didn’t commit. The trailer notes there will be an escape and a patron-type helping out. How quick will it be resolved? Are they really going to get away with the escape and there won’t be repercussions?
Of the fall line up, I’m mostly looking forward to Castle and The Mentalist.
Just a few more weeks!
