    I honestly wish they just waited to release the whole thing at once or even do what they did with Arcane and just release the episodes on weekly basis because it basically just ends on a cliffhanger.

    I mean on one hand I do like what it was building up too, but there was so much convenient stuff happening this season that it got kind of ridiculous, but I still can't wait to see Part 2 of Season 4.

    I must've been asleep because I didn't know this was even coming out to soon. Basically I overheard someone mention it at the store,

    Finished it and all I have to say is that Darleen is one of the worst characters in a good TV drama I've personally seen

    Just finished. SWEET F****NG CHRISTMAS this is show is SO GOOD.

    Man that ending, I was so pissed that the season was over. Julia Garner man, Holy CRAP, she had me literally shaking with her performance. Everyone was excellent in this show this season as always but Garner boy, she brought the house down at the very end.

    Everything has just spiraled out of control and I'm here for it. BRING ON PART 2 DAMN IT!

    Well that was certainly an intense first half of a season!

    I was about to say Darlene has more plot armor than any character I've seen in an otherwise respectable show, and then...welp, not anymore, lol. Still feel like this should've happened MUCH sooner, tbh.

    I do agree with this. I've felt this way about the show in previous seasons too, which is why it will never quite be on Breaking Bad's level for me. When things went well for Walter White it was almost always due to his ingenuity and outside-the-box thinking, while the Byrdes either get by on good luck/timing, or talking their way out of things...and half the time their talking does not convince me, so I can't completely buy it convincing these ruthless drug lords, business people, FBI agents and whatnot. Don't get me wrong, I love the show as the drama is intense and the acting is incredible, but for me it falls just short of that top tier due to that aspect of the writing.

    That said, Julia Garner just made one hell of an Emmy bid here, and I'm still very hyped for the 2nd half. :up:

    To each their own. I think she's a terrible villain with little arc.
    She is not shown to be that smart or cunning, she's not shown to be badass, she's not even threatening. She is just crazy and for some reason every character rabs the Idiot Ball when it comes to her.

    She's killed high ranking members of like 3 criminal organizations, maimed one, and everyone doesn't do anything because...? Idk. And that makes the Cartel and the KC Mob (I saw someone call them the Weanie Hut Jr Mob) look kinda wimpy. Like I'm not expecting everything to be Breaking Bad level, but at least in BB, Walt and to a lesser extent Jesse are given reasons why they aren't killed after messing up with the Cartel. They either use their smarts or like Jesse even lampshades in the final season they're lucky. Darlene it's just plot armor/convenienc. EDIT: And I forgot how she laced the heroin with fentanyl and lives through that.

    Her relationship with Wyatt seemed kinda pointless. Her "arc" over the seasons doesn't seem to exist. She's a trigger happy psycho in season 1, season 4 she's the same. I like the show a fair bit and the actress gives a good performance, but the writing for the character was weak after the season 1 finale.

    I do have a question thought about Maya. And pardon my ignorance on how the FBI works but

    How was it that Maya was able to so easily go behind her FBI bosses back and authorize the arrest of Navarro? I would think her superiors had made sure no one could touch him, no? And that seems like a really stupid decision, I'd imagine she's got a huge target on her back within the organization now.

    I thought her going after Zeke was on character and her wanting to continue the dope trade made sense now her shooting Frank Jr thats when i was ok now she's getting out of hand but when i said her ark made sense i meant

    Her getting shot in cold blood and Wyatt getting caught in the crossfire
    made The most sense this season

    I was surprised that Navarro’s nephew did a lot of the grunt work this season. He was making the trades with the pharma company and he shot Darlene and Wyatt himself. You would think he would have hired someone to do it instead.

    Darlene has a presence so I like her character when she shows up your not comfortable and thst adds to the tension on the show

    but I always thought her killing a top cartel guy in s1 thst she should have gotten killed in s2 she finally answered for that Javier doing it himself made him that much more dangerous

    Maybe I missed it, but, in the last episode, what instruction did Wendy give Charlotte while Ruth was raging in their house?

    Was I wrong in believing this was a final season? Because it sure didn't end like one. :(

    What just aired was part 1 of the final season. Part 2 is coming soon. I think before the end of the year

    I just caught up with this show over the past couple of weeks and phew! I see what the fuss is about. It's no Breaking Bad but it's definitely one of the best Netflix has to offer. I had no idea Bateman could be so good and it felt like I haven't seen Laura Linney in anything in years but she kills it here. Of course the real MVP is Julia Garner. ESPECIALLY in the S4 Part 1 finale. She's so good that I can even endure that grating accent she has.

    But anyway, my main reason for bumping this is to share that the second half of the final season drops on April 29th, so it won't be too much longer of a wait.
