Now that it's over... (I posted right after Quentin got shot, before the twist).
OK - The Carver is dead on the floor. Nobody notices him still breathing? Unless that weird jacked was supposed to suppress his chest movement. Even so... Nostrils move. Eyes move. People usually don't die instantly from a torso shot. That was just a little bit sloppy.
But let's say he's a good actor. Or he pumped himself with tranquilizer. Even so... a coroner would take and process the body... put him in the body bag. He'd notice Quentin wasn't dead. Then when he walked out of the morgue... somebody would notice.
I know... it's nitpicky. It was a good, satisfying ending. I was hoping it was something deeper than just Quentin, but the circumstances around it really made it pay off. But for a series with such stellar writing, you'd think the end would be a little more plausible. I'm all for suspension of disbelief. But that was just a bit too much.
I wish there was more follow-up on the racist guy, too. Matt walked in at the end like he just got back from burying the body, but the dinner happened a while after the shooting. Did they call the cops? Hide his body? Maybe we'll find out next season. I hope this one's quicker to arrive than the last!
I hope I don't sound too negative. I actually loved it. It's just sitting down and thinking about it afterwards, you see the holes.
