I love Motive. Y’all know this. When it was announced that the series would end this season, I was disappointed because it felt like it was way too soon to say goodbye to this show and these characters. In a weird sort of way, CTV did us a kindness by interrupting the final season twice, so that it wasn’t just a quick hit over 13 weeks and then gone forever.
“We’ll Always Have Homicide” is an excellent send-off to a brilliantly crafted “why-dunnit,” and I loved all of it. The hour enacts a nifty device I will not spoil that reunites the band for one more case that ties to another, and delivers closure for everyone. We walk away knowing they’ll be OK. That’s a terrific gift these days.
Last week, one of those Twitter polls rolling around asked for your 7 favorite TV shows (ever). I didn’t add Motive at the time, reserving judgment for how they ended. It’s totally there now.
