This is perhaps too much burden for one episode. The witsec issue gets resolved in the usual timeline. The issues created by Mary's father are untidy and their resolution is also less than tidy, even if there is a measure of redemption for both father and daughter. Mary comes to terms with her disfunctional family, after a fashion, and there are indications at the end that Mary intends to press on with her life as it is. There is an effort to wrap up the stories of the leading characters.
The least satisfying aspect of the episode, for this reviewer, was Mary's fateful conversation with longtime office partner and virtual soulmate Marshall. Previous episodes this season suggested both Marshal and Mary knew he wasn't entirely free to just ride off into the sunset with his fiancee, due to his attachment to Mary. This could have been a life-changing moment, but instead of champagne, we got warm diet soda and this long-time viewer was disappointed. But you have to see it and draw your own conclusions.
"All's Well that Ends" is highly recommended to fans of the series.
It is basically a good show, but season 4 was really where they should have ended it, or not taken away her quirky nature.
This season picks up six months after the end of season 4. Mary Shannon (Mary McCormack) is returning to work at the Albuquerque branch of Witness Protection, aka WITSEC, after six months of maternity leave. And as baby sitting does or doesn't work out, that means that the new baby might be in toe. Meanwhile, Mary's partner Marshall (Frederick Weller) is still living with his girlfriend Abigail (Rachel Boston).
As things get under way, their boss Stan (Paul Ben-Victor) learns that their branch of WITSEC might be closed down. And a face from Mary's past reappears to cause problems.
And there are still witnesses to deal with. A drag queen can't resist going back to the clubs even though he's been warned to leave that life behind. One witness with a secret wife enters the program. And a hoarder with a mental breakdown makes for a hard day on fellow agent Delia (Tangie Ambrose).
With only 8 episodes, there's a lot packed into each one, so none of them are wasted. Most still follow the standard formula of a witness main story with the lives of the characters as a sub-plot, although a couple of times Mary's life completely takes over. People new to the show probably won't get how great the last few episodes are, but fans of the show will relish the closure and character arcs we get.
And the cases of the week? They are still entertaining since the writers manage to find new ways to create suspense.Read more ›
