It dit get a fair ending and i thought the show was great.
I would have been curious to see where they could have gone with another season in the longrun.
Also it was really nice to see that french Actress Camille de Pazzis playing in the big league.

So happy that they had enough time to film a proper ending but that never should have happened in the first place. This should have made 7 seasons just as easily as The Shield did.. this is Shawn Ryan after all.
