An actor I greatly respect once said that every story has a passage, moment, a frame, a sequence, an episode, that encompasses the whole of what a writer/director sets out to depict or express—- and ever since I heard that statement, I can’t help but find that point in almost everything I watch. Unfortunately, when it comes to dramas, once I get that moment, I’m no longer interested in seeing the(ir) ending, for I don’t believe there’s any more to be said and the point has been made.
Heirs has meandered its way into being a drama that won’t be on the top of my list, but also wasn’t as badly comical as Ekun and I had envisioned. It’s been pleasant but taxing and with two episodes left we are both elated it’s coming to an official close. But, if I were to mark the journey, I could walk away and never look back, after this episode and the shot above.
