FI­NALLY LAID TO REST

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - THE WEEK’S TOP SHOWS -

AFTER four in­trigu­ing and emo­tional sea­sons, it’s the end of the line for our favourite group of peo­ple re­turned from the dead (aka the Risen). As cat­a­strophic bush­fires ap­proach Yoorana, the group is forced to con­front their fears about life and death. It’s poignant stuff watch­ing every­body wran­gle with their own per­sonal de­mons, make sac­ri­fices and ul­ti­mately find peace with what has come to pass. While James (Pa­trick Bram­mall) and William (Rodger Corser) have long since episode’s close, ev­ery one of the Risen will, to vary­ing de­grees, have re­ceived clo­sure in the life they lost and the se­cond chance they got to right past wrongs. It is a bit­ter­sweet end­ing. But let’s be hon­est, this se­ries was never go­ing to give us a hap­pily ever after with James and Kate rid­ing off into the sun­set to­gether to raise his daugh­ter. But rest as­sured that this fi­nal episode will pro­vide sat­is­fy­ing an­swers to many lin­ger­ing ques­tions about the Risen without ty­ing ev­ery­thing up in a neat bow.
