Well count me in among those who positively DESPISED the ending as sad, wasteful, and pointless. And I'm pleasantly surprised to find myself in the majority--at least based on comments posted to date. I recall that this WASN'T the case for a holiday episode of NCIS during which we learn that McGee's father died at Christmas; when I railed against that ending, A LOT of commenters effectively said "Shit happens!". Now I don't know how much audience overlap there is between the two shows, but there's either been a emotional sea change, or the audience for this show is a more sensitive crowd.
Thank you Kathleen.
Please go back to the review and re-read the paragraph that begins with "Fans of the NCIS mothership..." There's NOTHING in there about romance--the word isn't even used. By the way, "iirc" is short for "if I recall correctly"--you were probably thinking of "internet relay chat"
The comparison was based purely on the fact that two people have to keep their professional lives a secret from one another. No one said anything about romance--unless you think Brodie and her mother are hooking up. Second, Jake's been on the show twice iirc. It's very easy to judge a relationship as one dimensional when half of the couple doesn't get any screen time and all you have to go on is what Bishop says.
"Without a new episode of The Big Bang Theory as a lead-in to the night on CBS, Scorpion (9.4 million/1.9 rating) held firm..." I guess "Scorpion" doesn't need help from TBBT. "Supergirl" on the other hand.....

I agree with the reviewer's comment about this show rapidly approaching "eye-roll territory." Each pre-commercial cliffhanger is more perilous than the last and yet, the character survives. As for Ralph earning the respect of the folks on the train, perhaps so, but I'd have liked to see a gratitude from that little boy who didn't wanna be partners with HIIIIIIIIIM. Kudos to the Mom for telling him to suck it up, but let's face it---HEEEEEEEEE saved your whiny ass.
Welllllll.....if it was staged, maybe Frank's melodramatic rant was supposed to lend authenticity. As for your suspect list, would the writers really make Wes the guilty party AGAIN?!?!?!?! And if Caleb was in that apartment all evening before Michaela joined him, that probably rules him out. So that leaves Bonnie.....who WAS covered in blood.
"And where the hell did Catherine come from? She was in her pajamas, which were stained with blood, so perhaps she was standing nearby when Annalise got shot and she passed out? And most importantly, why did Frank leave her alive?" I was surprised to see her too--intriguing. I'm not sure she passed out. Given that the events at the mansion occurred in the dead (pun intended) of night and Catherine "woke up" at daylight, several hours had passed and it doesn't take that long to recover from a fainting spell. In a previous flash-forward, we see Michaela join Caleb in an apartment. What if he was there all night leaving Catherine alone in the house and Frank drugged her? Perhaps Caleb's "How is she?" refers to Catherine? Details are obviously sketchy, but perhaps this has something to do with creepy cousin (yeah, my jaw dropped too when we saw him watching his watchers). Maybe they tracked his movements to the mansion and that's what led to the shooting?

I didn't watch, though I certainly saw the trailers and commercials for it. I have to wonder whether it was a colossal mistake to premiere a show during the World Series.
