Wow, I'm really surprised so many people didn't like Escobar's return! I might not have been as thrilled with it being the finale, but I thought it was a very strong storyline involving his burned face, and Merrill being his prison b**** was great! Even the story involving his wife I thought was really great, even if I didn't want it to be the finale, it was done pretty well, and it was a good lead into the move I thought, but I know many disagree!
I think Ava was definitely one of the greatest characters they ever had. I don't even think I'd call her a villain, but she sure stirred stuff up very well. She was such a passionate character too, that's what I loved about her, even if she was ultimately a man! If they brought her back, I am confident they would give her one helluva story rather than ruin her, but I would prefer them to finish this season around what they already have going and perhaps bring her in next season. I think they have a lot to settle up on for this years finale!
I liked the Escobar story, and thought it seemed right that he died because he would have been haunting Sean for the rest of his life. I think that Matt could once again fall for Ava with Kimber out of the picture
