My take on the season finale:
very disappointing, contrived; In ineptly trying to tie everything together in a neat bow, the plot direction defied credibility, sort of negated the Cartel's past menace, is giving Bobby a literal "get out of jail card" and revealed that Clay's obvious demise was little more than a teaser. Also, no real cliffhanger. As a huge fan of the show, I was underwhelmed and less excited about the start of next season.
Oh well, onward next month to some more unapologetic, gratuitious "Justified" blood and violence down near Bumpus' hollow.
