The season finale of Meadowlands was tonight. It was the perfect ending to a season of mystery. We saw Danny Brogan preparing to get his family out of Cape Wrath. As Samantha was watching, she was suspicious of his plans. Danny used the opening of his new bar as a rouse to get his family out.
His son and daughter, Mark and Zoe were not supportive at first, but they soon began to realize that Meadowlands was not for them. Mark saw that he was being manipulated by Jezebel. Zoe saw that her crush on golf pro Tom Tyrell was unhealthy.
As the party was underway, Constable Wintersgill was watching, keeping a keen eye on Danny.
But as a drunk Dr. York came into the bar, he became more bitter seeing his crush, Evelyn get closer to Danny. Danny made a fake announcement how much he loved Meadowlands, but Dr. York knowing the family secret forced Evelyn to spill how Danny was not the father of her children.
Danny got pissed, stole a car, left the children and wife behind and started driving. Wintersgill decided to allow Danny to leave, smashing the electronic fence keeping all Cape Wrath residents in. And we saw Wintersgill threatening Samantha.
But as Danny finally got a flat tire and came screeching to a halt, he realized that he literally was in the middle of nowhere. There were mountains and a large canyon and as we pulled back, we finally discovered that Meadowlands was not in England. We don’t know exactly where it is, but it’s really the only civilization around. Perfect ending. If this is truly the end of Meadowlands, it’s where it should end.
But it has left me wanting more and I do hope Channel 4 in the UK and Showtime in the US will give us another season. I would like to see how Danny integrates himself back into the town and his family. And what exactly is Wintersgill up to? It’s all one giant mystery.
