Yeah, he definitely looks like a poser. Glad to know I'm not the only one that can't take him seriously with that manbun. He seems more like an Earther to me.
yeah. dude has like perfect skin and hair and seems so delicate!

Plus, I think he (like so many others) wears eyeliner. And yet had a five o'clock shadow perpetually. No thanks.



You ready? You look ready
Weak-ass ending. If they don't carry it on with a spinoff show for Laconia I will hold this ending in the same regard I hold BSG.

Well, I thought it was a better ending than BSG or Lost, let's say. Or Dexter. Not saying much, though, is it?

They purposely stopped short of where the books all go, and I assume that just leaves them the opening to take up another series later if they want.

But maybe I need to rewatch or read a wiki or something, so here's the question I literally yelled at the TV as soon as that last episode ended: "SO WHY DID WE SEE THAT STUFF ON LACONIA AT ALL?"

I mean... what's up with the "dogs," etc.? I... I... can't even.
Did I just completely miss something obvious with why they included all that stuff at all?

@Austruck: Yeah, they basically **** the bed at the end hoping someone will want to continue the story. I had a feeling that was going to be the case, but I was hoping it wouldn’t be. Left a bad taste in my mouth.

Had to put up with all that Marco/Filip crap for nothing. Wish I could get those hours back.

Like it’d be a totally different take if they had already announced a new show spinoff or movie spin-offs. Nope, just a bunch of poorly designed sets and random characters that have no bearing on anything. It’s like they ran a test pilot inside of a series finale. Who does something like that?!?

The article I quoted above adds some context for the Laconia story... which I would NEVER have guessed on my own, having not read the books. It just felt completely separate and tacked on all season long.

I actually stopped watching halfway through this final episode and checked Google to see if there were more episodes left, or perhaps a seventh season in the works. I could tell halfway through that this just didn't feel like the right timing or pacing for a *series* finale at all. Especially since the description on my Roku called it simply a "season finale." I was surprised that this really is/was the *series* finale. Wasn't surprised at all to find out there are three further books in the series...

It had that ridiculous "THE END???" feeling to it. I hate shows that do that.

Having said all this, though, I did enjoy this series quite a bit throughout its run. But most of this last season felt like stereotypical "chase the bad guy and git 'em" stuff without as much going on outside of that basic plotline. I completely forgot about the protomolecule stuff way too much this season. And I was really getting tired of Inaros by mid-season.

Okay, collective hive mind... I've been meaning to ask this for several SEASONS of this show now. If you watch with the subtitles on (and I do that with everything now), you've seen this every single episode during the opening credits. Is the opening music from a song from Norway or something?




The opening music is by Clinton Shorter - here's a link to the soundtrack album on Spotify that was released for Season One. According to Uncle Google the singer on the opening credits is Lisbeth Scott.

So it's music written for the show then. I guess I just always scratched my head at that "woman singing in Norwegian" bit in the subtitles, since I kept wondering if that fact had any significance.

I'm guessing they just tapped into the trend of having Scandic singing over the credits, apparently Scott wrote the lyrics herself.
