Dear Show: Do you honestly mean to tell me that you GOT THANDIE NEWTON BACK FOR THE FINALE, and you WASTED HER? Not in the mobster sense of the word (which at this point, might have been preferable!), but in the sense of being utterly useless?
I waited. I waited so very patiently over the last, like, 6 or 7 episodes for Kem to show up. I put up with Benton being the one at Carter's bedside, and then when she blessedly showed up at the 11th hour I put up with their initial reunion being interrupted, I put up with the gloomy conversation, I put up with Kerry motherflippin' Weaver, all of it because the only thing that mattered was me ultimately getting my Carter/Kem reunion. I figured you'd give the final scene to Carter and by 9:52 I had determined that since you'd strung us out this long, you meant to end it with Carter and Kem.
EXCEPT NOT. SO THERE WAS NO RESOLUTION WITH THIS COUPLE AT ALL. No kiss? No tender moments? ARE YOU SERIOUS. Screw you!
Although I am grudgingly happy that you fobbed Tony & Sam off with a mere handhold, that does not make up for it.
I promise to explain all of these thoughts further/in context tomorrow, or the day after. Just needed to get this much out.
