An Epic Conclusion.......
29 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

This episode will leave you wanting for more. It is gruesome,violent and most importantly keeps you engaged for full 54 mins. It is an epic end to the first season.The episode moves at a considerable fast pace than the others. The end battle sequence were as bloody as they gets , there is one scene that will literally blow your mind. The ending is quite justifiable and somewhat predictable. However ,it doesn't concludes all the stories it begun with, which gives some hope that there will be second season.It is great fun to watch. Great Dialogues,incredible acting, beautiful locations ,makes this episode a huge finale.......
