It was surprising! It was a happy ending! I do have a slight yucky feeling about miscarriages of justice, but that's just me. (It's also the reason I couldn't fully enjoy Chicago, because it treated murder a little lightly)
But my moral qualms aside, I'm glad Ripley redeemed himself - that was pretty damned cool. I like stories that present humans as being complex, and that no-one is either all good or all bad.
For him to go to his mecca, Las Vegas, was perfect!
I think Natalie and Peter are in for a tumultuous relationship - but hey, at least it will be passionate!
I suspect Cheyenne will end up with her son-in-law
My gaydar had Danny sussed several eps back, It worries me about his violence though. Has he left it behind for good? Then again, his dad was his role model and he turned over a new leaf, so maybe he will too? I hope so.
I honestly had no clear idea how this series would end. A big happy ending was the last thing I expected though!
