i liked the finale and while it was disappointing a certain someone saw their end. The way he did couldn't have been done better for his character. What I realized at the end was that Dar was right the whole time. He was doing the right thing for the wrong reason.

Before his death I kept yelling in my head "hold... hold.... hold... alright, almost throug- no!" R.I.P Badass 😢

Did not see expect that from the president. What a turn around.
Now the *******s of this season will be the unlikely heroes for next season to take down the mad king.

Dar was not right about anything as he made her that way & perhaps that was his goal & he never wanted her dead for a reason he wanted her paranoid & untrustworthy of people so that he can say he was right he built that up into her

Unless the writers are gonna actually have it she was always evil ? That would be a bit of a cop out as that is not what the show has been setting up for

& now Carrie & an eventually sober Max will likely end up breaking Saul & Dar out of prison so that Dar can come out a hero in all of this

This was Dar's plan all along

Calm down. This show isn't going to turn into Prison Break.

Dar was right so far as Elizabeth Keene was an unqualified Senator who had no business being President and is now in completely over her head.

The err in Dar's logic was opening a can of worms that he couldn't entirely control. This in turn resulted in a failed assassination attempt, carried out by a cabal of military and intelligence professionals; pretty much an attempted coup.

Combining Keene's inexperience (and in turn her inability to handle what happened with Dar/the assassination attempt) and the trauma endured by her own government attempting to take her down, we now have her responding with extreme paranoia and overreaction.

She's not a tyrant. She's not invoking martial law. There will be no prison break.

If anything, it seems like it is going to be a bureaucratic power struggle as the conversation between Carrie and the new chief of staff seemed to suggest that the NSA is now advising Keene on intelligence matters. So essentially, the result is an NSA power grab designed to discredit the CIA and give their organization more influence. And Keene, being a novice, is allowing herself to be the puppet of that.

I am pretty sure that Carrie is not gonna let Saul sit in any prison for something that he did not do & especially for the final two seasons. Maybe Saul knows of another bad ass with Quinn like skills to replace Quinn ? They are gonna need one as much as I hate saying it. They should crossover this show with Shooter & bring in Bob lol

It’s definitely starting slow this season. I think this is probably a better binge series.
