Well, drat. Seems HBO has decided to be lame and cancel JFC
, leaving umpteen questions unanswered. Having just watched the entire series of Carnivàle
, another HBO supernatural noir that ended with zero resolution, I'm not terribly surprised, but I'm still disappointed.
So! What do we think happened, eh?
Kai is the actual Christ figure, given the series' final words? John was trying to point her out to Cass? Or Kai is a Mary figure, either literally or figuratively mothering the actual Christ figure?
What would've happened on 9/11/14? Is that when the aliens come?
Why does Mitch levitate?
Was the car dealer really John's dad?
I want to point out that despite my allusions to Christian mythology, I'm not trying to "sell" Christianity. I'm a lapsed Lutheran turned agnostic who sees validity in all spiritual paths, but sometimes I know that it's easier for me to shortcut things to that which I have more experience with. I think if anything, this show really turns traditional religious ethos on its head, which is why I love it.
