“Et in Arcadia Ego” part 2 brought the first season of Picard to a close, and overall I’m quite happy with how it turned out. I think the final episode was a little overstuffed so that not everything was as smooth as I’d hoped. In some cases I think they should have restructured the last three episodes a bit to have some threads get resolved earlier, and in others I think they made some poor storytelling decisions. But the most important thing is that I think they got the emotional resonance of the story right, as there was a lot to cheer about.
For convenience here are links to my earlier reviews of the season:
- Remembrance (episode 1)
- The End is the Beginning (episodes 2 & 3)
- Absolute Candor (episodes 4 & 5)
- The Impossible Box (episodes 6, 7 & 8)
- Et in Arcadia Ego (episode 9)
