    Hayes spends all this time trying to find Julie and end the end Julie helps Hayes find himself when he has his dementia episode.

    Also - what good is it for Hayes to tell Julie her whole life is a lie? She seems happy, why ruin that?

    I didn't see Wayne handing Henry Julie's address as a tactic to get his son to further investigate the story. Instead I saw it very literal in that Wayne forgot why he had the hand-written address and gave it to his son, and Henry knowing his father has been consumed with this case for the majority of his adult life took it upon himself to keep the note and think about seeing what it meant instead of throwing it away.

    This take is so so so spot on.

    These true crime documentaries are now the new JFK assassination, Bigfoot, Lochness, whatever the fuck.

    People cannot deal when there's no closure or conclusiveness to a story. They want it to keep going and find the "real" answer.

    Two more things:

    1. I never got invested in Amelia/Wayne relationship.
    2. The jungle I saw it as going back to episode 1 when Roland explains how Wayne was a scout/hunter-type in Vietnam and would be gone for days in the depths of the jungle. Wayne lived an obsessive life and was a searcher and hunter.

    1. It’s because she never released the warlocks

    That's all well and fine but it makes for stale and anticlimactic storytelling.

    I think you guys are forgetting that the finale of season one also sucked. I thought this finale was a lot better actually. I didn't follow all those stupid theories and wasn't expecting some stupid twists and just enjoyed that last episode. I liked it a lot and I'd put it just below season one as a whole.

    Looking to start a new series until football season, was S3 any good? Better, worse or about the same from S2?

    Way better than S2. I enjoyed it just as much as season 1.

    If you want a short series also try Chernobyl. That’s an amazing 5 week mini series.

    More than likely so. I enjoyed the last season but it's never been able to recapture season one.
