Review - Terriers Season 1 Episode 13 Hail Mary

Well, that's probably the last we'll see of Terriers, and I was not disappointed in how it went down. Despite the low, low ratings, Terriers really has been a great show down the stretch. The plots gelled and the characters became more and more likable each week.

"Hail Mary" wraps things up, not perfectly but suitable for the occasion, in a beautiful fashion, with a sense of completion as the season comes to a close. There's not the frantic pacing of last week's episode, but more of an impending end, as Hank discovers this guy called Cutshaw above Zeitland. He cuts a deal, getting Cutshaw to stop the airport in exchange for a set of photos not getting published. It's kind of cool that we never see the pictures, but it's not important either.

We get to see the various characters Hank and Britt have met along the way, the mini-Lone Gunmen, Eleanor, Steph, Laura, and the regulars. Britt has prison time, but it's nothing compared to what could have happened.

As for the ending, almost undoubtedly, we can assume that they continued forward. After Britt's speech to Katie, it would be terrible if they ran off like that, and Britt isn't that kind of person. It was more of a feel good capper, the possibly of Hank and Britt living out a long vacation in Mexico, than a real cliffhanger for the hypothetical next season to resolve.

Score: 9.3/10
