Merciless Summer season Season 2 Episode 10 Evaluate: Endgame


These previous few minutes! My jaw is on the ground!

Merciless Summer season’s killer reveals all the time pack a punch, and Merciless Summer season Season 2 Episode 10 did not disappoint. The reveal modifications every thing about what we thought we knew concerning the friendship and that evening.

Merciless Summer season Season 2 ended on an exhilarating excessive and a satisfying end for the homicide thriller.

The dueling narratives and the crimson herring twist tipped “Endgame” to be one of many collection’ finest.

Luke’s troubles together with his household and the Chambers’ legacy had been an lively a part of the thriller, a purpose why Brent and Luke have been the way in which they have been. It was nice to have each narratives weave collectively in a plausible and shocking manner on the finish.

The primary is Brent’s crimson herring twist of “killing” Luke.

Did anybody take Luke’s first demise as the ultimate resolution? The accident on the dock was very early on, so it was shocking for the killer to be revealed at the beginning.

There was a threat this could possibly be anticlimactic, particularly since we had a full hour left for the post-death occasions. However “Endgame” discovered a technique to make this really feel contemporary and attractive. (We’ll get to the true killer’s identification afterward.)

Brent and Steve’s coverup journey introduced us right into a story we did not know was taking place beneath the floor.

Luke calling Brent for assist wasn’t completely shocking.

Let’s not neglect that Megan and Isabella left him tied up on Merciless Summer season Season 2 Episode 9, and he betrayed Jeff on Merciless Summer season Season 2 Episode 6 by relationship Megan. Who else was he going to name?

Even when Brent was an asshole, Luke was nonetheless his child brother and wanted assist. Plus, he would not punish him for needing him, not like Steve, who can be livid and blame Luke once more.

Brent was the most suitable choice out of a foul situation.

The Chambers household’s undoing began when Steve compelled himself and Brent to cowl up Luke’s “homicide,” not Brent “killing” Luke.

Hear me out: Luke was intoxicated, and whereas Brent was the one to shove Luke into the dock ladder, he may’ve simply made a case that Luke slipped, harm himself, and fell within the water. The demise was an accident, and Brent clearly jumped into the water to attempt to save him.

If Brent and Steve had advised Sheriff Myer that Luke had fallen in, the toxicology report would’ve supported that concept.

Steve’s stress to guard Brent wasted helpful time and prompted his household to impede justice. His degree of management has been a constant theme, however he went overboard this time and destroyed everybody.

Among the best elements of “Endgame” was the unraveling of the Chambers household beneath stress and their secrets and techniques coming to gentle. Notably why Steve had been so chilly and merciless to Luke.

The reveal of Luke’s mom dying as a drunk driver was stunning.

Steve had all the time made it look like it was Luke’s fault for the accident and that the household was pleased earlier than that. Nonetheless, this uncovered the extent of lies that the household lived with.

Brent: Luke wouldn’t have needed this.
Steve: Properly, it’s not my first selection both. However Megan is the one on that tape, not Isabella. So…
Brent: How may you do that to her? How may you do that to Debbie? It’s not honest!
Steve: Honest? Honest?! Develop up. That’s not how life works.

Every little thing he had executed to guard their picture was one other layer to his destroying his household.

If Luke hadn’t died and he uncovered the reality, would Steve have backed down? I do not assume so. He would’ve executed something to damage Luke to guard the picture; he is all the time proven his precedence.

That is why it was charming when Brent in the end confesses to Megan and Sheriff Myer the reality concerning the evening. This transfer was the primary time Brent stood up towards Steve and selected what was morally proper.

Do not get me fallacious, I have been important of Brent up to now, and that also hasn’t modified.

It has been as early as Merciless Summer season Season 2 Episode 2 that Brent’s crimes of recording intercourse tapes have been uncovered. Doing one good factor does not erase all of the hurt he is executed. He nonetheless wants forgiveness from his victims, together with Parker.

As a result of I’m not going to allow you to take the autumn for this. Luke actually liked you.


Saving Megan from being framed for Luke’s demise and exposing Steve was a very good first step.

Brent must be on a journey of self-development. It looks as if he desires to be a very good particular person and alter, so all the perfect to him for beginning that path. Not being like Steve (and taking down his father) is a giant win!

Let’s get to the “ride-or-dies” themselves: Megan and Isabella. Their journey throughout the season finale was a curler coaster of feelings.

Earlier than the large killer reveal and tape betrayal, these two have been by no means in a spot to be pals once more.

A lot harm occurred between them, like with Luke’s virginity lie and the homicide thriller. Megan appeared by no means to wish to forgive Isabella, whereas Isabella stayed on this fantasy of how robust her “ride-or-die” was.

Megan: No, you probably did all this since you’re hooked on drama. And I ought to’ve simply talked to him! I by no means ought to’ve by no means introduced you into this. He would nonetheless be.
Isabella: Yeah, treating you want rubbish.
Megan: He was proper. You’re solely pleased after I’m depressing. Properly congratulations, you bought what you needed. I want I by no means met you.

Each weren’t on the identical web page. Whereas most individuals can mend their friendships, this one wasn’t in a wholesome place, nor did it really feel prefer it may ever be fastened.

Megan and Isabella have been too completely different as individuals.

My earlier critique about Megan’s ethical superiority remains to be correct; she does maintain everybody to her excessive expectations. Nonetheless, I preferred how she set clear boundaries with Isabella about their future within the automobile.

You should not have individuals in your life who carry you down. She acknowledged Isabella wasn’t wholesome for her and set her boundary.

It was a giant rising second for Megan, that felt mature and correct to their state of affairs.

If the dishonest scandal hadn’t occurred, they may’ve stayed pals. Nonetheless, Isabella’s continued possessiveness and crossing boundaries would’ve pushed them till she retaliated.

Working example: Isabella framing Megan for Luke’s homicide with the video clip.

As a lot as Isabella was about “ride-or-dies” and BFFs, she nonetheless selected her survival first. She would slightly the crime destroy Megan than be consumed by it herself.

Within the flashback, when she took the tape, I suspected she was maintaining it for leverage. If Megan ever obtained out of line or she wanted an exit technique, she would have it able to go.

Her transfer was stunning as a result of Isabella is an unpredictable character.

We do not know what Isabella will do or how strongly she feels about one thing. Certain, she’s obsessive and feels deeply, however she all the time gave the impression to be probably the most grounded. Now, we’re left questioning if she’ll ever come again to complete Megan off.

Isabella being revealed because the precise assassin modifications every thing. It places her previous with Lisa and her obsession with Megan into query.

Possibly Isabella did plan to kill Luke with the gun? Or maybe it was all an accident? Possibly she solely seized the chance to kill him when she discovered him half alive?

Isabella: I like making new pals.
Michelle: I’m Michelle, by the way in which.
Isabella: I’m Lisa.

Both manner, I believe Isabella killing Luke was her manner of making certain that she was crucial particular person in Megan’s life. With Luke gone, she would by no means need to share; no extra competitors, no extra video games, and no extra feeling like a second precedence.

Isabella has a harmful sample, and I would not be stunned if she did the identical factor with Michelle in Ibiza.

The crime made it clear that it was a tragic story. All of Isabella’s lies and crimes have been for nothing; she nonetheless misplaced Megan and needed to begin over. She’s in a endless cycle that can solely crush the individuals round her.

Final Ideas From The Archive:

  • Run, Michelle! Run! The second Isabella known as herself “Lisa,” it cemented to me she more than likely killed Lisa in an identical damaging sample.


  • How did the police not discover the digital camera on the lake? Sheriff Myer must do a greater job.


  • The police arriving to arrest Steve was so deliciously satisfying. Karma got here and served a giant dish of justice.


  • The soundtrack of this chapter hit me in all of the feels. The duvet of “Dragula” was hauntingly lovely.

Did you guess the assassin appropriately? Did Brent’s admission give him redemption in your eyes? Are you cheerful to see Steve’s dynasty crumble?
