I'm extremely late to comment (given the season 1/series 1 finale is tomorrow), but I held off watching this just in case anything really terrible happened. March and April have been cruel months in terms of deaths on TV series I watch regularly. But even with my recent track record, I'm not convinced Trish is dead. How much is poor Kev to endure? Why waste so much potential in regards to Trish's character development? And would they really kill her off in such contrived way? I mean, to have Trish die because Grace's mom wouldn't listen and then became nearly hysterical? AND she had to save Dennis?

I was also having some issues with the uneven tone, particularly in the last scene with the nurse and Kevin. I would wonder if she was another figment of his imagination, accept she apparently was talking to Mal. Though Kev could have imagines that too. She just reminded me of Head!Shrink with behavior that doesn't seem appropriate in the moment.

I felt the exact same way. Particularly as I definitely felt like Trish being the body in the morgue was unlikely, I wondered how much of that entire scene was Kev's grief and delirium rising to the surface.

The tightrope walk of Kev's psychological status in these final episodes is *destroying* me. SO MUCH MORE on this to come in finale comments... but undeniably, Jamie is doing some incredible work with this aspect of the plot.
