Jeeeeeeeeeesus what a sloppy wrapup

Vaughn, aside from the shootout in the cabin, wasn't needed to 99% of the actual plot. And he still blew chunks.
Ray's death is supposed to be like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid but gets turned ineffective just by that shot of "Failed upload"

Frank gets stabbed only because of his fucking ego, and his entire 10 minute walking through the desert with hallucinations is just tedious. It's only the one with his girlfriend wife that is important because of the fact she makes him turn around

and then we have Adams
ooh wee we have Adams

badass lady cop
near rape scene
turns into damsel for the remainder of the series

also where the fuck did she and Vaughn's husbandwife come from in the end
I may have an attention disorder but fuck me that was random

if the show had ended half an hour before it did (at the schoolyard) it would have been bittersweet, and left the fates of its characters ambiguous, which would have worked better

now it's just slop

Frank didn't give up the suit because his diamonds were stashed in them. And really, they probably would have stabbed him anyway.

Frank asked McAdams if she'd be in Wedding Crashers Too with him. And by be in Wedding Crashers Too with him, I mean asked her to give a message to his wife in two weeks if he wasn't there. That's how they met up in South America.

Yeah they had dug a grave for him and wanted his suit. He was a dead man and realized it.

I agree that it was a sloppy ending though. And depressing.

I think the grave thing was to intimidate him.  They didnt ask for his suit until he asked for a ride.  Prior to that everyone was leaving.

I get the distinct feeling that someone was going to shoot Frank before they left. But then henchmen guy wanted the suit. A walk back through the desert without food or water mid-day likely would've been enough to kill a man, so even if you think they were gonna leave him untouched, it was still a death sentence.

Frank's surrounded by killers, each of whom would kill their grandmothers for the price of a churro. They don't need to dig a grave - in the blazing heat of a desert sun - to intimidate him.
