Okay… Not entirely unhappy about it but not entirely happy either. I expected a lot more. I expected it to be more ‘umph’! It wasn’t Cliffhanger-ish because they gave it away. There are a lot of things they could have done differently!
Before I say what first let me just say I didn’t expect AMC to be like this. Season 1 and 2 and 3 and so on and so forth. Not only am I still trying to get use to the 2eppy’s a week thing, I’m still off by the Monday only thing. For years Monday thru Friday consisted of a full hour of AMC! 5 episodes! 5hours! Yea, while I’m happy to have the show back this is something that I’m never going to get use to. Anyway, this season, wow that’s not something you say about a soap, we saw a lot of things happen. We met new characters. We saw old characters grow up. We laughed, we cried (Thanks to the wonderfully talented Debbi Morgan, Sal Stowers and Darnell Williams) and we were left in awe. The stories were wonderfully written (Some) and the acting was on point. At times we had to cringe because somebody could have done something a bit different but we still watched.
Anyway, the end of Season 1 was a one episode thing. (That sucks) and it didn’t end in that “Season Finale’ way! If you watch those primetime shows you know exactly what I’m talking about. The season finale is supposed to be like a Friday Cliffhanger eppy times 20! It’s supposed to leave the people on the edge and just awaiting the next season. And while I am awaiting the next season I feel AMC could have done this another way.
(This is my idea of a season finale!)
Sliding the phone his left pocket, Jesse looks around quickly before reaching into his right pocket and pulling out another phone. A smaller phone that didn’t bring any him attention and one he always kept hidden. One he also always kept on silent for he knew if Angie heard it or saw it she would start asking questions. Questions he couldn’t yet answer. Questions he didn’t quite know how to answer. She would jump to conclusions. Accuse him of lying, cheating and hiding things for her. And while two of the three were true he couldn’t deal with the fact that Angie would think he would cheat on her. A woman so lovely, a woman so forgiving, never in a lifetime would he give himself to another woman. Not when the woman he had was the moon, the stars, the world! No woman could ever hold a candle to her.
“Please, tell me you got something.” He texted before raising his head and after making sure nobody was watching him slid it back into his pocket and went about his way.
He sat at the computer with his devilish blue eyes squinting as he stared at the ultra-bright screen. “Come on. Come on,” he mumbled, angrily clicking a link. “There has to be something here,” he said to no one in particular. For hours he’d been sitting here, researching and making calls. Hoping to come across something that would give him the information he need. Give him the answers he and his friend been hopelessly searching for.
Picking up his head, he looked over at his office phone. “The hell,” he mumbled, snatching it up. “Yea?” He asked, just as his cell phone began to vibrate indicating he had a text message. Before he could reach for it the caller told him something that sent a shiver down his spine and made the hairs on the back of his neck stand at attention. “Are you sure? 100% sure?” He asked, sitting up. “Damnit! Thank you,” he yelped, ending the first call while simultaneously switching the lines.
“Jesse?” He said after the second ring.
“What do you have? Please, tell me it’s something good,” Jesse pleaded.
Coming to his feet, he walks over to the window. “My sources are telling me that Uri… Is about to resurface.”
Jesse looked up to the heavens and sighs. Finally! “I need you,” Jesse replies.
“And you’ve got me. I’m on the next flight home.”
As he turns around and crosses his arm, a knowing smile tugs at the corners of his lips. “Anytime man,” Tad replies. “Anytime.”
