Everything alludes to the perfect ending. The two main characters’ paths begin to intertwine, and for a brief second the universe confined to the screen seems to meet a satisfying peace. One more minute and that serenity will be met. Thirty more seconds. Twenty. Ten. Suddenly, you hear the ominous music radiate from the screen. Your worst suspicions are confirmed. A quick yet extremely altering act has been committed, and the once so close perfect ending drifts into oblivion. Tears of anger and sadness roll down your face as you see the all too familiar phrase….. End of the Season.
