Pretty underwhelming as finales go. Hearing Toby Huss basically reprising his role as Cotton Hill in another context was enjoyable, but this was a half-hour short on laughs and mild on intrigue. Brock setting the Monarch against OSI was kind of amusing, and him quitting has storyline potential, but the reveal that this was all set up by Molotov, Hunter, and the "Blackhearts" to become the top dog assassins didn't really compel me as a twist. Most of the episode was mired in this battle, and the only big moment in all of it was Hatred's speech about Hank coming into his own (mostly because it's true) and them siccing the blank clones on the other parties to the battle. It'd be too much to say that the moment has heart, but there's a bit of feeling to the idea that all these failed people are finding a little purpose and initiative. For the most part, this one's just sort of rudderless, filled with plenty of elements that are interesting on paper--meeting the head of OSI, the Monarch laying siege, Dr. Mrs. The Monarch and company interrogating HELPER--but that just didn't amount to a greater whole at the end of the day.
