Hopefully this episode title is a major anvil and it turns out in s5 (if there will be one) that William just dreamed this episode. Any indications for that in the episode?! (trying to find sth to give me hope...)
It does have all the possibilities of all being a dream or hallucination tbh but it would all have to be an hallucination for it to work. It could work as a sort of William nightmare about Julias imminent marriage - hence the very unlikely scene where he let's a guilty woman go from a prison cell and risks his own career - that really doesn't fit with the William we have come to know and love. If, for instance, the woman had been attacked by the 'mock turtle' in the past and it was shown that he had gone on to commit more assaults then surely she would have been given leniency rather than the rope. It all lacked cohesion as a so called murder. But on balance I think it was just a rubbish ending to an uneventful series of will s/he, wont s/he - thanks a bunch producers :-(

This had the promise of a really great episode. But the producers failed us. Thus, I hope their ratings go down. If there is a fith season I will probably only watch the first episode to see if it is worth watching again.
All in all this was very very dissapointing to hear.
Excuse me, I have work to do. These evil plots don't make themselves.
I can not see the point of building the relationship up, with moments, long longing looks, well meaning friends, and even a raunchy fantasy scene, only to dump on the fans like this. I'm with everyone else here thats it for me, I can not bear to watch another season of poor miserable Murdoch.
Murdoch brought all the misery on himself. If he hadn't have been so selfrightous he would have stopped the wedding. It's gotten to the point now were he's making himself miserable and not other people. No character growth this series at all.
I know most mystery writers believe sleuths should be miserable and in most cases I actually agree with no romance. But it's the show themselves who have been pushing W/J since the tv movies days, they are the ones who made the romance such a major part of the show, especially the last two series. What is the point of that if you don't give the viewers payoff to a romance you have forced them to like?
Being repetative only breeds contempt in the viewers and you lose them. Closing two series in a row with William being too much of a coward to really fight for Julia is bad writing and it will/have already turned viewers off. I don't actually respect William much after this episode, he allowed Julia to go through with a marriage he knew she didn't want. I get him wanting to save the girl he thought he had wronged but he wronged Julia in the process. Awful storytelling by the producers.

Something I wrote last week, holds true this week...
o tell you truthfully, I'm beginning to feel sorry for Julia and think she deserves better--even Darcy! Murdoch is beginning to look pathetic and is turning out to be like another Detective Lamb. Victorian morals or not, Murdoch should have gone after Julia when she first went to Buffalo, rather than wait 6 months later, after being summoned. You would think with all the advice he was given--from that detective in Buffalo, the French inspector etc., he would have said or done something by now. The last episode was painful to see too--just sitting there passively, absorbed in his work, while both Ruby and Brackenreid give him a big hint about 'doing something about it.' Darcy at least moved to be with Julia, and is even willing to fight for her... Clearly, something Murdoch is not willing to do.

whathaveyougeorge: Does anyone know when they actually tape at the Scarborough set? I live only 5 minutes from the set but have never been around when they are actually taping on set. I have HUGE Murdoch friends who would LOVE to at least see the set in action.
