"This is All We Are" competently ties up loose ends while maintaining enough dramatic momentum to draw viewers back in for a potential third season of The Knick.
Tune out the dialogue and simply become immersed in the show's colors and textures... it's a complete and satisfying dreamscape. But try and follow the plot, and it all comes crashing to earth.
If anything, The Knick is a relentless reminder of the abject horror in the banality of everyday living, and God, I couldn't get enough.
This departure, this closing shot of the disappearing city, has me worried for my favorite doctor and the rest of them, that this might be farewell. Is this really it?
When you stop and think about it, that had all the makings of a great series finale.
"This is all we are" is almost a mission statement for The Knick, or so it has seemed.
Director and cinematographer Steven Soderbergh is generous to his actors throughout.
"I have bad dreams," the man said. "Really," Edwards answered, taking a long, thoughtful pause. "Tell me about them." If those were the final words of The Knick, it was a nice way to go.
Brilliantly directed, beautifully acted, sometimes spottily written, 'The Knick' has been - and may continue to be - an exciting experiment.
"This Is All We Are" most certainly raised the bar on the Thackery-insanity front.
Watching the Harriet and Cleary story arc come to a gentle conclusion was the most satisfying part of this season finale.
