Last week was the Winter Finale of “666 Park Avenue.” There should still be around 3 episodes left before the season really ends, as ABC cancelled it and didn’t order any more episodes. However whether they will air them, who knows! ABC has been known to not air remaining episodes of cancelled shows. I’m not even sure what they will fill the spot with? My guess will be Nashville reruns.
The cancellation is a shame, because it’s finally gotten over the weirdness hump and we were getting to some real mysteries. Jane learned not only was her grandmother the little girl in the building, at one point she was there too. She also found out her great-grandfather was one of the men in the photo she found. He seemed to be involved in some secret satanic or pagan society and they were supposed to sacrifice his daughter in some ritual. owever he ended up saving his daughter and sacrificing her nanny.
What is the group they are apart of? What were they trying to do? We may never know! I like to think that maybe whatever they were up to opened that bizarre portal in the basement and maybe they obtained “the box” from it? That is another mystery I hope we get some answers to. What is that red box? I still think it’s probably Pandora’s Box. It’s too small to be the Ark.
The latest episode had Jane conferring with a psychologist trapped in the building named Mavis (Played by Whoopee Goldberg). Mavis made a deal to trade information Jane had to Gavin for her ability to finally leave the Drake unharmed. I couldn’t help but think that was a bad deal, because Gavin could still get her. However once she was outside, she turned into white doves and flew off. Huh? Was she a good spirit trapped there beyond her death? That’s all I could come up with. The white birds were also in stark contrast to the blackbirds also stuck in the walls of the Drake.
Jane meanwhile has been getting a little too close to the detective on her case. He believes something is going on in the building, and she’s trying to figure out what really happened to her family. Henry seems to be growing a little more distant too. Someone leaked Jane’s trip to the mental hospital to the press, which could be problematic for his chances when it comes to running for office.
Victor Shaw meanwhile told Olivia that her daughter Sasha was still alive. He said she faked her death because she learned who Gavin really was. She didn’t believe him until he called her and Olivia heard her voice. She demanded Victor take her to Sasha. They ended up at an apartment, but by time they got there it had been vacated. Then Gavin’s assassin shot Shaw and killed him, so now Olivia has no answers or leads left . . . . Meanwhile Gavin went to meet the only person who could have leaked the info about Jane . . . Henry’s new PR person, who is in fact Sasha! Yup, I saw that one coming a mile away.
I hope we get some answers about where things were leading before the show ends. I’d actually love it if the show would get picked up by a cable network, where they could really do more with it and the storylines. That’s probably a long shot though.
