^Yeah. After all, the bad guys often do, especially in a time and place as harsh as that one. Spoiler: spoiler The two main characters survived, Eva and the Irish brothers survived, as did the preacher's daughter--everyone else got screwed. It was unexpected but it seemed fairly reasonable, considering how completely evil/batshit crazy the Swede had become. Now we have a clean slate,so to speak, for the main character next season.
