    Such an amazing series. Thank you for all of the time and work you have put into this. Would it be at all possible to get the score for the series. The music and Crowe’s accent/VA are what originally made me love the series :P.

  2. Wormwood says:

    Thanks, Ryan. We really appreciate the folks who have taken this journey with us. The score is probably one of our most frequent requests. We need to work with Todd Hodges on this one, but now that we’ve wrapped the series, perhaps we can find the time to set something up for folks who like the music of Wormwood. :)

  3. John says:

    Great choice in the cover art for this episode.

  4. Wormwood says:

    Thank you, John! (We were hoping someone would pick up on that. You’ve made us very happy.)

  5. Lisa says:

    I can’t believe it’s over. What a journey!

    Do you have other story lines in the works?
    Thanks so much for all of this!

  6. Wormwood says:

    Lisa: There are definitely other stories that have been discussed, are at various stages of development. We’ll probably talk about these over the course of some of our “post-mortem” discussion shows, so stay tuned for those! :)

  7. Susan K says:

    Bravo! Thank you for a fascinating story and characters! I’d love to see it made into a movie! Any chance of that happening?
    I hate that it is over but look forward to post mortem shows. And maybe new adventures for Dr. Crowe and Sparrow? Please, please, please!!??

  8. RJ says:

    I’m so utterly dissapointed. Wormwood seasons 1 and 2 spun this great mystery and interesting characters, and so much amazing plot, but we get to season 3 and it started off pretty bad. kept going and it seemed to get worse. the writing was well done, the acting was great, and the audio was way more balanced then previous seasons, but it lead to nothing.

    the characters all just kind of die, without meaning, or end up being left in a bad position and nothing done about it. even Diedre’s character seemed to die for no real reason. i get that happens in horror but wormwood seemed to have meaning in every step it took.

    i feel like the finale of the first season of heroes. we got a great story and so much effort put in to it, all just to make it to an ending that didnt really need to happen, and wasnt as great as we thought it would be. i feel like these characters were destined for so much more. im sorry if i sound harsh i really dont want to but it was so dissapointing. :( im just really really sad. wormwood was one of my favorite shows and it just went nowhere. at least rachel got some semblance of an ending even if throwing her in to harmonys body was completely useless.

  9. Wormwood says:

    Sorry it didn’t work for you, RJ. Obviously, we disagree. ;) We don’t think it all led to nothing; after all, the world was saved from the hands of a demon. Crowe and Sparrow are both different — Crowe has had his personal demons exorcised. Jacob’s in a different place, as is Rachel (literally). Deidre’s arc surprised us, but felt like the right end for her. Jonesy rose to make his role meaningful. Even Grail grew through his interaction with Sister George, sacrificing himself to save others rather than follow orders. We end with Crowe and Sparrow in a new place, with Bradley and Drexall watching over their town, with Sister George and Elsa Bloomington embracing new roles.

    In the end, we felt we stuck to our story about the Object, and we told the tale of what it means, who is after it, and how the resolution changed all those involved.

    But, you know, not everything is for everyone. We get it. All we can say is that what we did was honest to what we intended, and we’re very happy with the way it all resolved — and we stand by it. :)

  10. RJ says:

    well I am glad that your satisfied with it. better then JK rowling changing her story for what fans wanted at least >.>

    honestly though, first two seasons, great great great. in my imagination it ended after season 2.

  11. JesterEric says:

    Thank you for this, really. I thought it was incredible, all of it. Unlike others, I enjoyed the beginning of season 3 and the shift in story-styles. Yes, I missed Crowe and Sparrow, but I loved the homages to styles of “Five Fingers” and most of the “Portraits” were great insight into the other characters.

    In the end, the wrap-up? I don’t know, I enjoyed it all, mostly. I had trouble with Diedre and mostly with Sheriff Bradley and the chopping up of the “kid.” Ick. Really a sound effect I could have done without.

    I like how it all came together, and it was really Sparrow’s story in many ways. I appreciated that Sparrow’s one “little” change was to bring back Jimmy D.,but that’s also where I didn’t like it. The end was too much “Oh, here we go again, it ain’t over yet.” (And while I don’t want it to be *over*, I love this world you’ve created, I didn’t like the “obvious sequel” feel of the last 40 seconds or so.

    That said, I’m waiting for what’s next. Thanks, all.

  12. Wormwood says:

    Thanks, JesterEric! Glad you enjoyed our various entries for Season 3. From the creative side, we were definitely invigorated by the shift and the ability to do the Five Fingers stories, as well as the Portraits.
    As for the “post credits” scene at the end? Well, yeah, that was admittedly more of a gag than anything else. If it helps, the true story of Wormwood ends with the final credits. Anything after that is just… speculative…?

    Until we do whatever it is we do next. :)

  13. Linda says:

    wonderful wonderful wonderful! Parts of this one brought tears to my eyes. A great ending for a great story. Thank you so much for many man hours of enjoyment.

  14. Jimmy Details fan says:

    Oh em gee – what a finale, you guys. Totally pimpin’ to as many friends as possible. Any news on a sequel? I’d love to see (or rather, hear) of more Crowe and Sparrow, but of course, I leave it in the capable storytellers’ hands. :) Thank you for giving us such a great ride.
