One of the big issues was sorting out the red herrings from the real story.
Only once we had the whole story could we know one from the other.
Easier the 2nd time.
I had a blog and whatnot.
First watch, I disliked the final season a lot. Final episode slightly less so.
I remember it in detail. No brags but remembering complex plots is my superpower.
With that end in mind ... It’s still pretty good.
But the 2nd time through you KNOW that. Which does something interesting to the story.
a) Every character who seemed authoritative can now be understood to be duped to one degree or another. And sometime those who seem most authoritative are actually the most duped.
Because once you stop waiting for the show to TELL you, you can notice you're getting what you need to figure it out for yourself.
Just to say, there are rewards for the 2nd viewing.
You might even say ... We've Got To Go Back.
