I feel like a third season isn't very likely, but, who knows. I thought this worked as a series finale if it turns out to be one.

I feel like the back half of this season got a little too wrapped up in the psychodrama of the other dimension and didn't do quite enough to keep things connected to the real world. Almost all the B-plots that happened in the real world - Bridgid getting put back together, Evita marrying a loa, and most of all, Tyrone's mom commiting a full-on Dexter-style murder - they all felt like they got kind of shortchanged a little bit because the show was more interested in exploring characters' inner lives via the darkforce dimension. Which was definitely fascinating at first (and I'm sure it's much easier on the show's budget) but relying so much on it left this finale feeling kind of ungrounded and vague.

They worked in some nice iconic Cloak and Dagger comics imagery though, especially that moment of Tandy leaping out of Tyrone to finish off Andre, which did help to make things feel more climactic.

I certainly hope they get a Season 3 but I really hope they also get the budget to not spend quite so much of it in the darkforce.

I liked this finale overall, but I also felt like it needed less time with the psychodrama via Perfect Tyrone and Nathan Bowen. I would've appreciated more of a wrap up at the end, like more of the scenes of how Brigid/Mayhem, the Johnsons, and Mina Hess are moving on or coping.

I definitely want more though.
