Gareth informs Kingsley of the situation. Kingsley prepares to kill Gareth, but is killed by Madalena, who gives Gareth a promotion to King. Isabella and everyone arrives at Harry’s place, where Harry has built her a permanent room.
The two finale episodes were definitely fun, with a little bit of humor. However, the ending felt like a bit of a cop-out considered we really don’t know, whether or not they’ll be another season. For the sake of finishing the story, ABC should definitely make it happen, despite shaky ratings. All in all, it is watchable. A 7 out of 10 is deserved.
