I, for one, still feel let down by how easy everything was in this episode. From the revival of the crew to Ranna handing over Helen's magic cure-all drug, it was all a really disappointing resolution to the suspense that had been so carefully built up throughout the season. Even a little more conflict between Helen and Ranna might've made things more interesting.

I agree with everything said.

Kate keeps being underused and it's getting really frustrating. The whole episode felt like any other episode. Fun enough, not bad!
BUT it didn't feel like the epic conclusion of a half season worth of plot! It was very bland, because it was too EASY. And speaking of 'worth' ... What was that with Adam? He wanted to steal some weapon and it'd be bad... the end. He ran around a bit and nothing else. I expected something super evil and for his plan to progress a bit further before they stopped him.

I never felt the pressure or the chaos! The trailers has us going "OH MY GOD both the Hollow City and the surface is going to explode in chaos!!" and then... it was like, "Hey, this is a really bad situation lalala okay, now it's fixed."

I didn't feel the drama.

I mostly liked it. I just had 2 problems.

1. I hate it when shows appear to kill of characters and then they are fine again without any consequences. It is cheap.

2. It felt rushed. But a lot of Sanctuary feels rushed. I think it comes from only having 13 episodes. It doesn't really leave enough room to tell a whole seasons worth of stories. Why don't we get a full 22 episodes the way other shows do? It would really help, I think.
