Finally watched it! Quick comment though as it's silly o'clock here & I have to get up hideously early tomorrow.

Loved the way it ended. Thought LK drew enough of the threads together to provide a satisfying conclusion while still leaving enough hanging for a possible second season.

Surprisingly, I was almost sorry to see Mal go, it felt that his character was finally starting to come together in this episode.

Best bit had to be the van though. OMG the van!! We have a van. That made me very happy :}

Not sure what to say about Kev and Trish and Dennis, so much going on there. They've all got some road ahead of them.

All the cast were superb, but Rosa deserves a special hat tip. Jamie, JW and TE all excelled themselves. Brilliant stuff. More coherent comments later I hope.

In a finale that had a lot more heart-wrenching moments than light ones, all the ones with the van were not only light but bang-on. If you wanted to get symbolic about it, it's not a bad metaphor for Kev and Trish's relationship... yeah, it's pretty banged up and it needs some fixing, but it's loaded with promise. :)
