"But how much of it is necessary? An actual, frantic note I took while catching up on the show over the long weekend: 'TOO MANY THINGS MEAN STUFF.' The result of weirdness being forced: Characters have too many motivations. Pained expressions could be filled with too much meaning. The finale has too many scattered arcs and Easter eggs to pay off, and the show has even more skeletons." ALSO: Michael K. Williams recognizes the "trauma and pain" from "Rewind 1921."
