And here goes my review I have to admit that I was very shocked to realize that Pasiphae is Jason's mother. I bet most of us thought the Oracle was his mother. But it does resemble Greek tragedy, because Jason has actually killed his aunt by killing Circe, and he almost killed his own mother! I am, however, somewhat anxious about how they plan to (ab)use this secret regarding Jason. I really hope it doesn't get stretched for seasons and seasons as they did in Merlin. It is very much in reverse. Merlin kept hidden his identity, and now Jason's identity will be kept hidden. I would rather if the TPTB were wiser and didn't overuse it. But we'll see.
So the king stays He was somewhat more menacing, though I wonder why nothing happened to Pasiphae, since she did want to execute his own daughter. And Heptarian was a goner. I didn't expect that.
Also, the scenes between Jason and his father resembled those between Merlin and Balinor. Though I really wonder how Jason did not recognize his father. How much did he know him? Only as a small boy? And he didn't have any picture? Luckily it was all muddily introduced in the series opener, so they've got a lot of space to evade paradoxical situations.
All in all, it was a satisfying finale, and I have high hopes for the next series, which should get better. Merlin did.
