Re: Were you satisfied with the character arcs?

I must be one of the few who wasn't, because her final episode was such an immense cliche. "Let's reveal a character's unsavory backstory that we've not even hinted at before, so they can redeem themselves by dying, all in a single episode!"

It's one of those things I'd call "retrocharacterization," where someone's supposedly been motivated by particular elements of their past that had been heretofore unrevealed, setting them up to make the Ultimate Sacrifice.

It just struck me as lazy and cliched and I didn't much care for it.
