It’s been a week since the season finale of The Finder. I’m only saying season, and not series, as I am in firm belief that all the work everyone is doing is going to change some minds. I’d totally love for it to stay on Fox, as it’s a station I get, and it would be a lot easier for them to just say “Whoops, we goofed up and totally misunderstood the fan base. The Finder will be back for another season.” Then we get to keep all the same writers, the same actors (possibly minus Mercedes Masohn as she has another show she’s with now) and the same crew that made The Finder the totally awesome show that it is now. But I’m not going to lie, I would rather have it on USA or FX with a couple of changes (as long as they don’t totally mess up the show!) as long as it’s on the air!
So when we have a Season 2, what would everyone like to see? What do you think is going to happen? There were SOOOO many loose ends on the last show that it could literally go anywhere! There are so many possibilities for story lines, and I think the writers did a fantastic job keeping everyone on edge and talking about this show for the summer hiatus.
Here are a few of my thoughts:
The last we saw of Isabel, she was giving up her badge. I think that pretty much spells bad news for her. I know she had big dreams for her future, but she totally did the right thing by helping Walter find his mom, despite the repercussions. I imagine that she will find a new direction for her energy and talents. For some reason I think bounty hunter fits her. It’s not a big glamorous job with the govt, but she’d still be able to fight crime and carry around a gun.
I think Leo is going to be lost for awhile. He put a lot of his energy and his life into being Walter’s “lovely assistant” (hee hee) and watching after Willa, that he’s going to hit a bad low point in his life. Think of the episode that had his daughter’s birthday in it, and how he fought with himself. However, I think he’ll pull it together because Walter will need help with the criminal charges he has.
Speaking of Walter… Yup, he’s going to jail. Not for as long as we think, though. With Leo’s help, as well as the help of a lot of friends in high places (think photo of him shaking Obama’s hand) he’s going to end up either being charged with something a lot less serious, or having charges dropped against him completely. Those bad dudes he killed? I don’t think it will make a difference. Bad dudes generally dispose of their own bad dudes because they don’t want to involve the law.
I haven’t forgotten Willa. I haven’t decided if Uncle Shad or Timo is going to hire Walter to look for her, or if she’ll end up sending a letter to Walter or Leo (probably Leo, she definitely looked up to him at the end) asking for help getting out of a jam she managed to get in. (I’m thinking she tried to con someone she shouldn’t have and is either trapped or on the run from them in a big way.) I’m actually leaning toward Timo asking for help. I’m not a Willa/Timo shipper. I totally didn’t see any sparks there with them – though Amber has been trying to get me to see other wise. LOL But I think Uncle Shad maybe promised Timo that he could marry Magdalena (I think that’s how it’s spelled) if he got Willa to come back to the family. I think Walter and Leo – with Isabel’s help – will find Willa just in time to save her from something (cliche’ ? maybe) and despite not wanting to get pulled back into her gypsy family, she’s going to realize how much she missed Walter and Leo (and yes, Isabel) and come back home with them.
I think we’ll get to have some fun with Uncle Shad and the family, as well as some good times with a big gypsy wedding for Timo and his girl. That has all sorts of interesting possibilities!!!
So, what do you think? Think I’m totally off base? Have some better thoughts??? Put them down in the comments below! Let’s get a good discussion going. 😀
