The finale of this series felt very rushed and had little time on some character developments. The beginning felt very disjointed as characters went off on their own thing and went on separate missions.
There were many questionable decisions such as Diana's treatment of Satu. Let's not forget that Diana killed Benjamin and agreed that Knox "deserved death". I know these people did serious offences but no one deserves death. What sort of message does that send out to viewers? And we are rooting for her?
I don't know who is the witch with the blood of the lion and wolf. I wasn't hooked on the idea that Diana could have the power to reborn all creatures/end creatures of the night or create life. I haven't seen the full powers and extent of Diana's magic as it is made out to be an amazing thing in season 1.
Benjamin Fuchs was made out to be a large threat but he didn't do much apart from take Matthew and mess with Jack in the past(which was way more interesting). I wanted a better interaction with him and Diana as they met each other in 1591.
Despite the severity and seriousness of breaking the Covenant mentioned in season 1, Diana had no consequences for her actions.
We still don't really know what the twins are.
The end mentioned a great battle that was beaten despite no great struggle or physical fight. The member of the congregation almost instantly agreed to Diana's terms and revoke a 900 year Covenant though there was a slight division.
I was hoping for drama with the fact that Diana's friend Gillian who was killed/or not by Matthew would be addressed as this would be an interesting part to their dynamic.
We were told that Knox was tracking down Diana's movement but then D just goes out in the open risking exposure. The fact that all beings are created by daemons is bizarre and the first few episodes were giving the impression that they would create a cure but otherwise what is the point of those scenes not all humans will harm Creatures?
I really enjoyed season 1 as there was this mystery of the Book of Life, the magical capabilities of Diana and the long lasting Congregation and their backstory. The Book was summed up briefly at the end which seemed like a downgrade, we didn't see much of Diana's powers (and the 10th Knot wasn't as grand as I expected) and the congregation is played as some pathetic incompetent government who are unable to capture a witch.
Season 3 flopped and my order of it all would be season 2, 1 and 3.
I did like Chris and Miriam they were very interesting(especially near the end) but until the last two episodes everything was monotonous and steady and slow and no tense or exciting moments.
I would love to hear what you think and whether it you think it was as good or better than other seasons - or NOT.
Thanks for reading! (just had to rant it out!)
