In one word? Satisfying. A thoroughly satisfying way to wrap things up. The action played out early on, with the rest of the episode serving as one long denouement. And it worked. I’d wondered how they were going to stretch things out to last for an entire episode after covering most of the big finish last week. Turns out they didn’t have to.
So what’s next? They left the door wide open. Left several doors wide open, in fact. Maggie is set to go off on her own adventures in that potential solo series. Little Millie is still out there, and she’s an out-and-out vampire now, quite the little monster, and very much her father’s daughter. As for Charlie and the Wraith, well, he got cremated and it got crushed, but if they were both really over and out would Wayne still be suffering the effects of his time spent in Christmasland? I think not. The showrunners have said that it will all come down to the ratings and the decision made by AMC as to whether or not there will be a third season of the show. The ratings were not that good. And if there is a third season, will it even resemble the first two? I think the story between Charlie and Vic is over. Where do they go next? There are lots of possibilities, but each would involve some necessary and sizable changes to the formula. Maybe Charlie’s ghost could appear throughout a third season, trying to lead Millie in his footsteps. Something like that.
