The long-awaited end is near. The need for answers will be satisfied. Or maybe not? As the series has developed so far, anyone trusts Basgallop, Shyamalan and company, because they have stretched the gum so much that the task of Closing a story like this meeting the expectations of its viewers seems like a rather complicated task.. They don’t care for leaving us with our mouths open or with our hands on our foreheads. Who knows! What we do know is that, whatever it is, we want to be witnesses of everything that happens and both are perfectly aware of it.

These first three episodes that we have been able to see they are pure chaos composed of action, references to the genre, unpleasant moments, black humor and a camera work that reaches its zenith. A macabre fictional fantasy where we see how a family descends to hell while the world around him -his house and his street, which his sights do not go much further- collapses with them. Of course, it is not that the series is worried about giving us answers at the moment, but if it continues on this path perhaps its outcome can become in turn its best season.

In this first hour and a half, the delicious power game between Leanne Y Dorothy, with the supernatural nanny trying to please while caring for a Dorothy who, now bedridden, recovers from her spectacular fall. But of course, between them peace is no longer possibleand their relationship develops in what seems a clever homage to ‘Misery’. Meanwhile, Julian is still a servant of Leanne and be he keeps escaping reality by wasting money on complicated recipes. As if that were not enough, a probable new threat settles in the Turner house, which will lead Leanne to rethink her position.

In this way, the first three episodes of the last season of Servant they’re so snappy and funny that they go by in a jiffy, even more so than some of the best episodes of the series. and although nothing really happens to advance the plot everything feels as addictive, intriguing and mesmerizing as everthanks in large part to the short duration of its chapters. It is a formula that Basgallop and Shyaman have masterfully refined over the years., and I hope they get the final result to live up to their absurd originality. The worst thing is that, even if its outcome reminds us of that of ‘Game of Thrones’it will have been worth this unique trip between these four decadent walls.
