During the auction for the Occido Lumen, it was agreed that the book be sold for the total amount of gold the losing party has plus $1. When Eichhorst lost his access to the gold reserves, Creem declared that the book is sold for $323M (the amount of gold in Setrakian's disposal). However, it should have been sold for $1 since Eichhorst has, in effect, $0 to spend. See more »

A brilliant finale held back yet again
5 October 2015 | by alecthecrackerSee all my reviews

Most everything about this episode was brilliant. I thought the character arcs were well handled, and seeing my favorite character Quinlan being a bad-ass again was awesome. The only thing that I couldn't stand, that bothered me the entire season, was how bad an actor Max Charles is. At some points in the season, when he should have been crying, it looked like he was about to laugh or smile. His range is nonexistent; between overacting and underacting scenes, he just can't get it right. Im so very disappointed the producer cut Ben Hyland, who is a much more talented actor, for this nobody who can't act for his life. Nepotism must be to blame. His poor acting in this episode really ruined a lot of scenes, especially one high stakes scene that he completely mishandled. Overall, they need to recast that character, whether or not that means giving it back to Ben Hyland or picking someone new and talented.
