Like many, my interest had flagged and I thought the series was kind of meandering. Plus, it had been so long that I barely remembered where we were.
But this last season is swinging for the fences and imo mostly wildly succcesfully,
There is an experimental edge as each episode seems to be a tribute to a completely different genre. One week, 3 people are wandering lost in the snow on Christmas Eve with David Lynch visuals. Another became a classic heist procedural, amped up with pulsing electronic music. This last week, 3 characters, along with 2 who did not matter, in a small apartment, thunder and lightning through the window, and traumatic emotional interactions in 5 titled acts. And at the end, a resolution that felt emotionally ambiguous as a bad guy seemed to be more than what he first appeared. And this was set to somber orchestral music.
I think they are reaching tv classic status this final year.
