The Newsreader – Season 1 Finale (Meltdown)

The job of a season finale is to wrap up the season’s story arcs and establish new ones for the next season (if there is one). I felt that this finale mostly did its job. I’m going to review the finale character by character.

Helen and Dale – Helen and Dale are dealing with the fallout of Dale’s revelation at the end of the previous episode and the Chernobyl Disaster. The episode kicks off with Helen tossing and turning in bed, getting up to go to the bathroom, and taking some pills. Whilst she’s in there, she finds Dale’s deodorant, which leads her to packing up all of his stuff and frantically cleaning the house. In the morning, when Dale comes by to see her, he finds his bag of stuff and his shoes at the front door.
