This last episode reaaaallllyyyy better wrap things up in terms of motives, character backgrounds etc. Either that or well-placed ambiguity. Because if I'm left with a really sour ending I'm not sure how I will feel about the series. These last 5-6 episodes have been quite good. Beyond that though, there was little to no plot movement for 30 episodes and tons of repetition.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the symbolism, music, and dark storytelling of the actual storyline, its just been covered up!! I need more of that and less repetition.
