Hap and Leonard can't let go.

The ending destroyed me! I understand why it happened that way (kind of), but I certainly haven’t accepted it.

I loved Charlie making sure Hap and Leonard would be okay with each other. I love Charlie period.

The ending was devastating. Serious question: in this episode, was Florida a ghost? We've certainly seen a number of ghostly figures both this season and last, and while I'm not sure we're meant to take their presence exactly literally, I can't see how Florida could have been alive and trapped in the car for days and days. Just finding her at all seemed too good to be true. It's somehow easier for me to believe that her spirit needed to be found and freed -- especially this season, where Belinda's voiceovers and the dramatization of the old blues singer's meeting with the Devil seemed to create a bleak aura of magical realism right from the start.

I’m not sure how much time passed in the season, honestly. I thought the total time was about a week, so I thought Florida was really alive when they found her. She clearly had air, and it rained a fair bit, so she had water too. I do think, though, that she died in the flash flood because she heard the cursed song. Hap and Leonard could save her from Tim (and the Klan, and the kkkops), but they couldn’t touch the curse.

Fucking Grovetown.
