Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: We knew he was probably near the end of his life, so the ending isn’t a complete surprise, although it’s rather sad. It’s also sad that Claire thinks she’ll be able to continue the work, even though she has no evidence of success.

Con: It seems strange that Vegas never used the gesture before if he really knew what it meant. It’s just as easy to imagine it was a dying spasm.
