Comments and queries for the week of January 1

Haven limps across the finish line

I enjoyed the finale, but I haven’t loved the last two seasons for the reasons you gave, so when it was time for the finale, a part of me was like “finally!” And as much as I like the Shat, I wish they’d cast someone with more of a dangerous vibe. They had all that build-up of this dangerous, malevolent Croatoan, and it ends up being Capt. Kirk?? You mentioned Priestley’s cameo at the end, but I also enjoyed seeing Nicole de Boer popping up too, as well as that artist girl who gave Nathan that nice drawing at the end. And as much as I loved the ending with Nathan’s lovely monologue, I almost groaned when he came across the car at the side of the road because I knew it was going or be the new edition of Audrey. On the one hand, it’s nice that he can start over with Paige, but that was almost too sweet an ending that came close to souring everything that just come before. —JeffDJ

I liked the ending. I also knew it would be someone who resembled Audrey; the payoff was James in the back seat. I also hated the show’s turn in the last couple of seasons. Not the Audrey, Nathan romance—I wanted that from the beginning—but too weird, even for Syfy, as they went into off-the-wall events. I just loved the Troubles they had in the early seasons, then the solutions. —Gerry


Blackstone closes down for good

I am going to miss Blackstone. Favourite actors and favourite show. —Lana

I just wish Blackstone had not ended. The show dealt with many realistic issues that are in today’s world. All the actors and actresses all great. A very powerful show. Please bring it back on. —Charlene

Wishing Blackstone would come back!! Such an amazing series!! —Josse
