  • Did they know this was the last episode?

    I was absolutely in love with this show last summer and just COULD NOT wait for the last half. And then... season 2 starts and I found myself just recording them and getting to them days later because they were not interesting at all. But the series finale, I thought, should make up for the non-fabulousness that was the second half of the show. So how did I feel about "The Showdown?" Can we all say anti-climactic. Not only did nothing happen, but the nothingness that did happen was far too sentimental for me. I mean REALLY Ella has never been the type of character to cry and whine over anyone or anything (that's partly why I loved her) but in the matter of hours she's crying over how she was always so mean to Leon. Whatever! And then Roxanne is sacrificed. But anyone with half a brain already knew that was coming. I mean the entire school is Malachis, the sexy principle is gone, and Jo's in charge of the school. The lone holdouts are Tom and Roxanne. Well Tom is killed the previous episode (that was really sad when Leon talked to Tom's ghost) and then there was one. But even Roxanne's sacrifice is anticlimactic and ont really that interesting. So we end with Malachi supposedly in control of the school (but did his sacrifice of Roxanne truly have the desired effect?), Thelma in search of a new outfit, Ella and Leon cuddling near a tree (is Ella still bleeding?), and a new symbol similar to Malachi's (a British blogger informs that it is Azazeal's) bleeding on a nearby headstone.

    So at the end of this strange British sci-fi journey I was left to mull over a few things"

    1. Why did Cassie leave? 2. Why did Azazeal leave? 3. What ever happened to Troy? 4. Was Jo just evil or insane? 5. Was this university of a high school? Either way those rooms were crazy luxurious but for some reason couldn't support a bathroom? 6. Did the writers know that this was going to be the series finale? I can't believe that they did, because this was wholly useless as far as episodes go! 7. When will I ever see Gemima Rooper again? She was awesome!moreless
  • Hex you wasted two years of my life. This show sucks!!!

    These aren't my words:

    This was a fitting ending to a show that never really did much. What this show accomplished in 2 "seasons" would have happened in a few episodes of shows like Buffy, Angel or Charmed. Great, he's bringing about the end of the world, Thelma is on the side of good and Leon is not evil anymore, but there is no END! Malachi didn't die because Thelma was still around. I though my DVR cut off the end like it did for Buffy. Now I'm not saying it needed a sappy ending where they all live happily ever after, but come on, have some kind of closure. Also what was with the baby she tried killing? If anyone knows let me know, I guess I missed that.moreless
  • Nothing happens. whats with the baby? If Malachi is dead, why is Thelma still alive? Shouldn't Ella die if her job is complete?

  • Not bad - but come on, this is the finale! Should be so much better!

    For the first six episodes or so of this series, I couldn't believe this show had ended. I mean, it was amazing. But then Malachi arrived. And it all went a bit...b*llocks. The stories were stupid, the plots ludicrous, and for all its realistic dialogue and emotions and stuff...everything else was so unrealistically unbelievable it was silly.

    Right. I actually quite enjoyed this episode, but then again, that's me. I'll watch the series finale of anything. There's no showdown, there's no tension, there's no closure. But there is the hilarious Thelma, there is the sexy Ella, and there are some very good moments. But it's not enough. Not nearly enough to satisfy fans.

    Maybe all us Hex fans should rewrite Series Two, make it, do our own finale, and forget how bad this series got towards the end.moreless
  • A perfect fanfic ending...

    10
    Okay so I don't really agree with everyone else about it sucking. I loved it! Leon and Ella are back together (which is all I really wanted) and Thelma is still around. Plus it is ended perfectly for fanfic writers to continue the show themselves. There is no way that the writers could have finished the show so that the viewers got to see all of the conflict over and done with, without it being a truly sucky ending. So I think they did a fab job and now this has become one of my fav shows, it's just a bummer it's over for good. But then again I do have all these fic bunnies biting me, so as soon as I get a free moment I'm gonna start writing my very own version of 'Hex - The Complete Season Three', oh, the wonder of fan obsession lol.moreless
