    I didn't like the way they tied the ending into a nice neat bow with everyone living (mostly) happily ever after. Wife and hubby seemed to reconcile after so much jibber jabber about the affair and how she can't forget. Kidnapper and wife also happy, after wife was so pissed. The whole business with the First lady helping out seemed SO contrived. But yeah, I guess in context it's no more stupid than the rest of the series which I enjoyed for what it was.

    I guess they could do another season after our kidnapper is out of prison, and he becomes the negotiator he started out to be in the pilot....but really, I'd be more content if this was just one and done. Much like Under the Dome should have been.

    The ratings for the finale were a 1.0. That's really, really bad for a show on CBS. There is no chance that there will be a second season. It was a miracle that CBS didn't cancel it during its run and they probably would have it if wasn't a short season (13 episodes) show.

    I'd agree with you, except you have to wonder why they didn't call it "the finale" or the "series finale". Why did they call it the "season finale" if they have no intention on bringing it back? That just seems odd.

    I guess it's because CBS hasn't "officially" canceled it as of yet. I don't think we'll ever hear about it again though.

    While I could certainly pick apart pieces of this show, plus I found the doctor difficult to watch, I thoroughly enjoyed this show the whole season.

    We are down to the finale and this show....

    Well, I'm glad there are only 2 hours left. I've really had to suspend logic to watch the last few episodes.

    It's a TV show. You can find many dozens of issues with each episode like just about every TV show ever broadcast.

    I was just glad they aired all the episodes. At the beginning of the season chose Hostages over The Blacklist. But then after hearing alot of people talk about The Blacklist I caught up with that. I enjoyed Hostages. But it was nowhere near as good as the Blacklist has been. And I was glad that Hostages had a limited number of episodes.
