I thought it was a bit of a jolly romp altogether. I liked that hell was a luxury hotel. The Persephone/Demeter thing looks like the set up for the season and it's pretty ambitious of them to make Bo's dad/the big bad Hades.

I think I enjoy the actors, silly costumes and corny jokes so much that the other weaknesses don't matter so much. Shame Kenzi isn't going to be around (much) for this season.

This episode felt disjointed, like the sub-plot with Lauren and Kenzie exercising a spirit felt slapstick, rushed and an afterthought.

There was lots of Bo monologuing in the dark, and it felt like the writers were treading water. The only people watching at this point are going to be die hard fans and we already know the back story of Bo's father and the torture of her mother so why have her retelling it into the Dark.?

Because everyone knew (?) ahead of time that this season would be the last I was hoping for for a tighter season. Kenzie leaving is unfortunate, but I guess the actress has other commitments?

At this point it looks like a final showdown with her father is inevitable for Bo, but i really hope he's not a damp squib of a Big Bag like the Garuda was.

Did the last bit with the candle seem totally inexplicable to anyone else? What is that even about? Yeah, I am NOT loving this season.
