“Constellation” season 1 episode 8 review: This isn’t the conclusion you’re looking for

“Constellation” has been a bumpy ride to say the least. While there’s been remarkable sparks of promise along the way, we’ve been fearing the worst for weeks. Unfortunately, in this final episode writer Peter Harness‘ story crash-lands and gives viewers little reason to stick around for a second season.

Harness could’ve taken far more interesting paths after the last two episodes rather than giving up and hoping to land another season to make up for lost time. Instead, we have mother and daughter repeating the same things over and over again. However, we must commend series director Joseph Cedar (“Our Boys”) and the cast as they manage to hold down the fort, making an impression in an otherwise redundant chapter – Jonathan Banks shining particularly bright.
