Sarah and Jake from The Harold & Maudecast recap and review the Season Finale, Episode 8, of Taboo on FX starring Tom Hardy, created by Hardy, Chips Hardy, Stephen Knight and Executive Produced by Ridley Scott.
It appears the true identity of Keyser Soze has been revealed and he's James Delaney. The season finale was bloody, explosive, and filled with good ol fashioned cursing -- bout time. James Delaney (Hardy) always 100 steps ahead of the audience, and Sir Stuart Strange The Company, orchestrated a brilliant getaway. Bound and awaiting trial in the Tower of London thanks to Sir Stuart Strange (Jonathan Pryce), Delaney played the cards he had be holding all along. But if you think everyone gets out of this episode alive, and they all sail off together on the high seas, think again and be prepared for some sadness. In the end, the season finale of Taboo delivers justice, and ties up all the loose ends in Season 1 with a promise for adventure in Season 2.
Spoilers abound in our recap and review which we are giving an enthusiastic 9.5/10.
