I like that they tied so much up and yet left some new things dangling. I hate shows that are totally cliffhangers like if they had left Henry dead. I think shows that do that can be really silly because you never believe it and if they are going to kill a character i think it is bad to wait and see if they are dead until the next season. If they are dead then be dead and that be the end of it.
I agree with you. On the whole, I think many viewers are happy, as the last few episodes did anwer many questions we all had, although a couple remain, but that is what season two is for. Plus the ending gives the show a whole new direction to go in – having magic in SB.
