Could this be “The River’s” final episode… ever? As of right now there have been no rumblings about “The River” getting picked up for a second season, so I wouldn’t get your hopes up. The first season comes to a close tonight after just 8 short episodes and we’re sure to be left with unanswered questions as the show slowly slips away. Maybe by some miracle ABC will realize that they should give the show at least the start of a 2nd season to see where it goes, but that’s wishful thinking. So instead of dwelling on the inevitable, here’s the synopsis for tonight’s season/series finale of “The River”. I’m going to try to live-blog this one like I did the 1st episode, but we’ll see if that works out.
Row, Row, Row Your Boat
In the first-season finale, the violent death of a crew member plunges the Magus into chaos and forces the others to live in fear, while Jahel ignores her father to desperately call for spiritual help.
