    For the first time I wished I hadn't read the books, knowing in advance how that would end.

    Interesting that they're trying to get 2 books worth into one series, this episode was like a mini reset. Moving all the pieces to where they'd need to be for the next plot very quickly.

    So looks like they end at the conclusion of Abaddon's Gate for this season.

    Yeah, but it ended as though they already knew syfy and pulled the plug and they weren't sure if someone else would pick it up.

    Enjoyed this season more than previous ones. Amazon acquiring it seems likely to make the production values (mostly in terms of directing, not sfx) go up. Also think the next book might be a little boring or unworkable in terms of making it seem interesting. We'll see where they take it.

    If they just skip the slug book and move on to the next one, they won't lose much...
