I just finished watching the entire third season a little bit ago. I loved that ending. I'm overjoyed that we're going to have a fourth season, but if it hadn't been renewed that would've been a lovely way to close things off. Despite the fact that we still don't know all of what happened the night Hannah died, there was a big sense of finality. I felt like there was, anyways. Seriously, that ending had me so happy. I was grinning like an idiot when the credits rolled.

The season was tied together so perfectly, too. When it got ten episodes last year I was super happy, but I really feel like six is the magic number when it comes to this series. The only complaint I had about the season was that we didn't get to see Kerwin or Bobby Dean, but at the same time I understand why. Their parts in the story are more or less closed off, for the time being at least. I just wanted to see Kerwin because he's one of my favorite characters, and delivered one of my favorite lines. That scene where he tells Daniel he knows he isn't guilty really hit me. "Because I know you." How could words so simple be so poignant? That's also the scene that sold to me that Daniel is most likely innocent.

All in all, it was a great season. I can't wait for the next one. I might actually live watch this one, haha.

life is killing me posted:

I don't know, I'm still on the fence about his innocence. On one hand he seems so nice and gentle and the evidence we've seen really seems to suggest he's being framed, but on the other hand he's now admitted to it twice and we've seen his dark streak before, like when he put those coffee grounds in Teddy's rear end. In my opinion Teddy got what was coming to him, maybe that was very heavy-handed but he was being a gigantic rear end in a top hat up until the end of season 3. At least Teddy mellowed out a bit and may end up redeemed next season or something. Anyway, yeah. I'm on the fence. I know the show probably won't ever reveal whether or not Daniel is guilty, and maybe even Daniel himself had blocked it out in his mind to the point that the police and Senator made him believe he had done it.

The acts of violence had me questioning it too, but I think both of those can be attributed to his time on death row. Although Daniel was under a lot of stress in both instances (and under the influence of drugs in one), Trey is right, those are not the actions of a normal person. But Daniel isn't a normal person, no one could be after nineteen years in a box. At the same time though, I kinda hope we never find out. When I first started watching I was anxious to know, but the show is so amazing I don't care if it's ever made explicit who killed Hannah. But to me, Kerwin telling Daniel he knew he didn't do it is good enough, because Kerwin knew what it was to be guilty. I think that's the closest thing to an answer we'll get when it comes to the question of if Daniel's innocent of the murder.

Speaking of Teddy, am I the only one who felt kinda bad for him in the pilot? I'm not saying I don't think he's an rear end in a top hat, he definitely is. But when Janet told him to stop calling her "mom" for awhile I felt kinda bad for the guy, I still kinda did even after all of his negative character traits came to light.
