Well I was expecting a cliffhanger of some type and not a good ending!
But it had a decent ending with some teasers for what would have been coming
in the S-2 it never had a chance at.

last demo was a .02 and .95 mil, same as last week they said on demo.
the neilsen crowd dont like religious shows, at least the younger ones.

This show skewed a little old, many shows that do 1 mil have a .03-.05 demo on cw.
This was about the same as nikita at the end.

The show was ok, but I was getting a little tired of it by the end.

The little girl was the anti-christ! I thought they were just teasing that!

One thing was I thought the end would have been better had they stopped the bad guys but instead they gave their lives and then god steps in and does it for them.

It made a good summer show though.

1) do you remember the actor who is playing the seventh Messenger now? Wink..... he was on POI as the gangster.
Looks like him, I forgot about him he was only in that last ep or 2.

2) guess you havent seen 13 yet.
I thought it was good ending, better than expected.
1) Well, it was Dominic "Mini", the one who wanted to take over Elias's position as the top mobster. Actually he was not only in the last one or two eps, but played quite a role throughout season 4, so I guessed it would be an easy task for you ... Wink

2) I agree, The Messengers had a decent ending. The showrunners kept their promise. For me this now was a nice kind of mini series with a likable cast and pretty entertaining over its whole run.
But I also will remember it as the show with the weirdest handling by its network I ever got to know. It really looked like The CW wanted to fail the show from the very beginning for whatever reasons ... Suspect
Sure, I think a show with a plot like The Messengers is not meant to go for five seasons, because it would get boring to see them prevent the Apocalypse somehow again and again. But I definitely could see a second season dealing with Amy as the possible Antichrist and Michael as a possible Archangel. So it looked like he showrunners couldn't resist to give us (and The CW?) a hint to what they might have planned for a second season.
It's only a rather soft cliffhanger though and doesn't hurt the good ending and final impression of the show for me!

I saved the last two and watched them as a "double feature".
Made it really even more fun to watch!
Actually I should do that more often, but I mostly just don't have the needed discipline for that ... Wink and maybe on the other hand it's a good thing, because usually it's more fun to talk about it on a weekly basis. By binge watching there's simply not much time left to discuss possible twists and turns etc., just watch it and there you have your plot solutions already ... I think our forum here would be pretty dead, if we all only did binge watching ... don't you think so? scratch

Here's a very nice review of The Messengers finale:

And another article:

The big question ‘The Messengers’ Season 2 won’t be able to answer

Last, but not least, an article which tries to explain, why The Messengers had no chance from the very start:

We already know that "Vera" (Shantel VanSanten) picked up a new role as Patty Spivot in The Flash S2 (‘The Flash’ Season 2: Jay Garrick & Patty Spivot Making Series Debut).



Now I read that "Koa" (Jessika Van) joined the cast of the upcoming CBS show Rush Hour:

I didn't plan to, but I just got stuck and watched it to the end. Those three are nice guys ... and I had to laugh out loudly, when Jessika ("Koa") and Britanny ("Nadia") told about the face licking thing ... Laughing

Nice interview with 'The Man'. At around minute 37:00 he talks about, how plans for a second season had already been made, especially for his role.
Must have been frustrating, when they realized that there never was a chance for it ...
