Dr Mixter, played by Rosemary Dunsmore, gets her karmic payback and the kids start to heal.
I think the last episode would have worked a lot better for an ending to the season as this one feels as though it was just tacked on at the end in order to meet episode quotas. I suppose you could argue that this episode is a sort of epilogue for the season but really it just feels like filler.
I think my big problem with this episode is that I just don’t care about the central trio of teens, as such all of their healing and their big emotional breakthroughs within the episode don’t hit for me as the teen characters are easily the weakest bit of the show. The more interesting plot points of this episode for me is seeing that Nica, played by Fiona Dourif, is now on the course of revenge and that things look all over for Tiffany, played by Jennifer Tilly. Again the episode is guilty of teasing things that are yet to come, but you would expect that from a season finale.
The gore and seeing Lexy, played by Alyvia Alyn Lind, finally snap and kill Chucky, played by Brad Dourif, in a really bloody way feels satisfying and Lexy’s dealing with this new found urge to kill could be something worth exploring come the next season. I would like the next season to separate the teens and have them go on their own journeys as the idea of them all together again in a new location which Chucky can then invade just seems a little old hat and played out at this point.
Overall, a fine epilogue to the series that sets up some interesting ideas and things to explore next time around, however, it is a big step back from the heights of the penultimate episode.
The set up for Nica and Tiffany
Lexy snapping and bloodily dispatching Chucky
The focus on the teens is dull
It feels like a step back from the previous episode
