I guess my problem with Manhunter is that somewhere along the line (perhaps earlier than I'd like to admit), a dark and gritty story about a flawed woman exploring what it really means to be a vigilante turned into something ... cheesy. Relationships just this side of a bad soap opera, families with hidden secrets, team-ups for the sake of team-ups, hokey dialogue.

So while I appreciate the attempt to provide some closure with the flash-forward, it mostly serves to reinforce the extent to which the series was moving away from where I wanted it. To be perfectly frank, the mother-son superteam seems 180 degrees away from the mother who accidentally let her son almost blow himself up at the beginning of the series. Kate and Ramsey shouldn't be exchanging lame quips while jumping across rooftops. They should be having screaming matches between therapy sessions.
