Wow, that was a great Finale.

That final 5 minutes was intense. I was worried for a 2nd that Julie being abducted would have been a major cliffhanger ending. That would have really pissed me off. Glad that Satch showed up in the nick of time. But, they somehow managed to wrap up most of everything else....until Robbie showed up at the end in that last scene. I think that ending was open ended and could be left open for interpretation.

But overall it was a solid 13 weeks. I was pretty satisfied. The events of 1996 are no longer really significant to Raimy in the present other than Robbie being a fugitive. A 2nd season would really need to entail Robbie doing his killings again in the present and Frank needing to fix the ham in order for Raimy to get in touch with him again to track him down 20 years ago. But with the way things ended, he has no need to get in touch with her again. Unless Julie pushes him for an explanation about future Raimy speaking to them earlier.

I was hoping her dad was going to be there at the end.

I've been behind, but finally finished this up. Not only was this an outstanding episode, but a great set of 13 episodes.

I had wondered a few episodes back if Joe wasn't the killer, but they sold him so well as the unhinged abusive person at he center of it all. I think one reason I dismissed the son is because I kept thinking he was too young. I think (?) we saw him in a flashback at the time of the summer camp. However he seemed too young, and certainly not 15, which is what they referenced in this episode.

I agree the ending was very intense as I had no clue what was going to happen. They established it takes a bit of time between evens to take effect, so wasn't sure what to expect in the present.

I will say Raimy pushing so much seems to have resulted in:
1) Megan dying
2) Gordo's dad getting shot
3) Robbie gets away and is unhinged

I too was expecting Frank to be there in the future, with her mom absent. That would certainly been a WTF moment.

They certainly left a few storylines open for a second season, but wrapped up the big items. Frank even had a pretty descent goodbye to Raimy. If it wasn't for the last lingering shot, there wouldn't have been too much of a cliffhanger. Few remaining storylines:

1) Stan getting shot, while seemingly having Frank's back, and bleeding out
2) The broken radio
3) Robbie on the run

The one thing that nags at me a bit - what changed to cause Robbie to keep killing people. All the killings in the past were done (I think 3 or 4), but he had stopped. When Frank lived, something changed that caused him to keep killing.

If it doesn't get picked up I'm actually okay with that. This show was really great and told an amazing well told story. I'd much rather have that than drawing out a shoehorned plot over 3, 4, or more seasons.

It's probably for the best they had to end the narrative after only 13 episodes.

I never understood how they planned to stretch this concept out over several seasons.

This was the bonus scene shot in case the show got cancelled. Yes, it wraps things up.

No Tomorrow is also supposed to get an "epilogue" tag but I'm not sure if they got to shoot something or if it'll be text.

EDIT: The final episode for No Tomorrow is different than the broadcast & Netflix versions. The ending is extended with text overlays detailing the future.

Then...
Spoiler:
an extra new brief scene


Thanks CW for actually allowing closure to cancelled shows.

That was a very useful epilogue and ties even more up. Now the series feels like a good mini (limited) series. Three minutes can make such a difference.

Cool idea on the epilogue!
Would like more of those in the future.
