I hope it finds a new home - I'm kind of iffy about the show at this point but not ready for it to end at one season.

The betrayals in this episode jumped out at me. Hero breaking her promises to Sam, Roxanne taking out Kate. And then the lies.

Roxanne is awful but something in me recognizes the rage built up after years of being ignored and bullied.

That's disappointing to hear about the cancellation, especially after this episode, which adds so much to the origin story of the Amazons. And Nora's arc! Somehow, she stumbles her way into assuming the same role she's always had — an invisible, indispensable assistant to power. It's like she's coming home, or rather, has made herself a new home.

I was on the fence about beginning this, but with the news of the cancellation it seems...not worth it? any thoughts?

It's actually a good show: strong performances, believable world-building, motivations more or less accounted for. I'd suggest you check it out.

Man, I hadn't heard about the cancellation. I've been enjoying the show and seeing so many women's names in the credits at the end of the show.

And now we know Roxanne got all of her police training by watching Law & Order season 10.

Why ‘Y: The Last Man’ Was Abruptly Canceled

It's really a shame. I have been enjoying the season immensely, and to find out that the cancellation had nothing to do with ratings or reviews, it's just about timing and rights agreements, really hurts. I know everyone might not like a story that starts slow and builds up later, but that's really what I like. Unfortunately, so many shows like that get cancelled before things really come to a head.

I had just gotten into this show, and am liking the non-Yorick stories. There's potential here, too bad about the cancellation.
