ON EDIT: Is it just me or does it seem as though some episodes were cut from the season? A great deal of time seems to have elapsed during that last episode. The resurvey was completed. The brothers went to Chicago and back. The guy getting shot in the mouth wondering back to HoW and then rejoining the work crew as if nothing happend. The US Marshall's on the doorstep of HoW. Making the 40 miles out on nowhere when just moments before there were complaints about business being down because no one was working. I've seen shows where they wrap-up a plot in the last five minutes but that was a pretty big stretch.
Yeah, I thought it was really ham handed as well. The big one for me was going from the suggestion that Lily may be forced into prostitution by circumstances (no money, no income and not many other opportunities for a woman in the camp) at the end of the last episode to suddenly doing the survey work and being self sufficient. It would have been pretty gutsy of the writers to play that hand, and I highly doubted that's where it would end up - but it would have been nice if there were an episode in between that brought some resolution to that aspect of the story.

Honestly, I really like Mumford and Sons but that track really felt shoe-horned in there in an attempt to be trendy or something. I did not care for it's appearance. To each their own, I suppose.
It's a shame there were only 9 episodes in this season. A few more really would have filled out the plot much better. I wonder if they didn't have a portion of their funding yanked from the show late into production and they had to patch it up as best they could? I would have expected that behavior from Fox (RIP Firefly
) or ABC... not AMC. This season was freaking fantastic.
