I, too, am sad to see this story end. There was so much packed into these 18 chapters to enjoy, especially the fact even canon characters were new to us in many ways.
Why do we love it so much when Olivia *gets away with it?* I don't think any other character carries their sins quite like her...in the tiniest mannerisms, in her very being. She suffers on such an epic scale, I feel a gnawing pain in my own chest from it sometimes, especially in Viva. Thomas and Louise are proof enough that she does so much so *right.* Yep, I am thrilled that she gets off scott-free.
Wow. The scene at the Deschanel Chateau was so climactic. It was stunning and chilling to finally meet the mastermind behind the whole story. (Del, Olivia, Elaine and Cole were each Juliana's victims, in their own way.) God, I have to say I felt for Cole, especially when he smiled as he met his fate. This is the makeup of someone who would smash a young girl's head into the wall and leave her for dead- someone who hates his own existence. Really, really a great incarnation of this character that we won't soon forget.
It must have been so cathartic to write the final scene, in which Olivia smashes the jewels. I love that image, and I'm so glad it's here. I think it had to happen for both of them to move on, even Gregory, knowing that they represented her young, blinding love for him. They have grown so much, and the future ahead is definitely a promising one...although not without an awesome bittersweetness.

I just loved that this chapter was called "All the Way." It was as smooth & calming as Sinatra crooning it out, all through. I was so satisfying to see Olivia and Thomas reunited with Louise.
Sean and Caitlin are amazing as Alex'a children. They were made for this. I love their conversation.
Annie has really come through as my second favorite under Olivia.
