I realize that they didn't yet know there would not be a fourth season when this was being shot, but something felt oddly underwhelming about the way things wrapped up Sunday night.

Not sure that I believed that the death of the whore would satisfy Hearst in the first place, much less that he'd fall for Trixie being replaced with another blonde.

In short, I needed more bloodshed. If you're gonna have Hawkeye show up with guns (including a fucking midget!) and tease Woo leading an army of Chinese to back up Al's play, then for Christ's sake, deliver some mayhem! Everything in the past year has revolved around Hearst, yet in the season finale he simply decides on his own that it's time to split?

Don't get me wrong, it was still a better hour of TV than you'll find pretty much anywhere else but it ultimately felt a bit unsatisfying.

p.s. the final episode of Season One (it ends with Doc and Jewel dancing) still ranks as maybe my favorite hour of TV ever. Deeply satisfying in that it perfectly wrapped a lot of threads that had been building throughout the year but left you plenty to think about for the season ahead.
