I'm not saying DC saw these movies, however there's a Danish movie trilogy called Pusher, and they all end like "Made in America"
ends with the main character owing money to serbian druglords, then his prostitute friend runs off with the little money he has left. You see him running in full panic mode after the prositute as the serbs wait for him with plastic laid out across the floor. The movie just fades to black as all this is going on leaving the viewer wondering wtf happens.
A ex-con loser has just killed his druglord father that never showed him any respect and snatched his baby from it's crackhead mother. He gets on a bus trying to escape the drama, and all of a sudden it fades to black
Ends with a Serbian druglord just having disposed of two bodies, having a third foe locked up i the freezer not knowing what to do next, having to deal with his daughter's problems etc. FADE TO BLACK.
So sorry Chase, I'm not impressed. It's been done before, you're not the supergenius you thought you might be. You're not the first to build up a tense situation where people can expect just about anything to go down, and then just leave them with their cock in their hand. The only difference is that these movies ended that way to portray the hopeless situations one might find himself in being a drugdealer/criminal.. I expected more from a television show that's been running 8 years.
