Very true, it seems like it's always a middle aged white dude who fucks shit up LOL.

Since the beginning of time, IMO ?

Nothing more dangerous than entitled middle aged white dudes with a victim complex. 

I hope that maybe Jane might not be dead, but it looks like she is. Poor Jane, if only she had stayed in her office. That last speech she gave him was freaking on point though. That was epic as hell, ans if that was her last stand, she went down swinging. 

Joe really is a petty piece of shit. Its bad enough killing a former bully who is now homeless, or people who were just doing their jobs, but he also kills a woman for the crime of not wanting to date him after he said a bunch of racist shit to her, and a girl whos crime was not saying thank you. Dear God, his stupid, petty reason for wanting to kill Penelope would be hilarious if it wasn't so horrible. 

This episode just continues my theory that the best way to survive the Purge is to hit up party city and buy a silly costume and a creepy mask.

So, will the next season cut to the next Purge night in a year? I am glad that they're getting another season, but I am very curious about where they go next.

I was hoping that Jane would make it, but at least, Pete, Miguel, and Penelope survived and Joe is dead. I like Miguel and Penelope going out to help people on Purge night. I am glad Jenna went to Europe although it looks like it might start purging. I hope that we see Pete, Miguel, and Penelope again next season. Penelope grew on me.

I was expecting it to revealed that Jenna was helping to fund the Resistance.

Miguel and Penelope survived, and now are Purge triage.  They won't be Purged, since Purge triage is off-limits.  Just an unwritten universally known rule of the Purge.  Great to see they're helping people, and won't be killed for it.

Glad that Penelope and Miguel made it, and are now driving a Purge med cart, where they can help people while not being Purged on. Penelope really grew on me, especially this episode, where she was quite the badass. It really sucks that Jane died, and I was even sorry to see Rick bite it in the end. He was a bit of a cynical dick, but he did love his family, and never fully went dark side like I thought would happen at first. I was also happy that Pete the Cop was alright, he and Miguel bonding was weirdly sweet. 

Joe suddenly flipping and being all friendly to Miguel and Penelope as soon as the siren went off was darkly hilarious. Its amazing Joe could keep that much crazy locked up for a year, the dude was seriously twisted. 

So, where does this show take place within the Purge universe? 

Spoiler

Because in one of the recent Purge movies, the new president made the Purge illegal. So how many more Purges will there actually be?

I stopped watching after Jane was murdered.  I won’t watch next season.  This is yet another show that hates black women.  So fuck this show.  I wouldn’t even watch a bootleg version.

I was hoping that we'd see Jane with the Matron of Saints at the end. 

Joe not realizing that threatening someone even after the purge ended was a stupid move was typical to his character. Of course Miguel killed him. Who wouldn't? It was funny how he thought everything would be okay once the siren went off.

I hope that next season we see Jane and I hope we see what happens after the purge ends.

Agreed, killing Jane and letting Penelope and the reproducing half of the vapid couple live was a huge narrative mistake.  I was hoping Jane survived, from what I've read she didnt so I'm not watching this episode. It doesn't sound like I missed much.

Yes, yes yes.  This show pulled the bait and switch shit, that often happens with black women on TV (I'm looking at Person of Interest/Sleepy Hollow); they'll kill off a black woman but say, "hey, it's okay, we've got another WOC here, see."  As if they're interchangeable.  I don't get how they can kill off the best and most interesting character on the show and still expect people to watch.  If I was an executive at USA, I would have told them to go back into the writing room and come up with a better ending.

While disappointed that Jane didn't survive I was still rather happy with the finale of the season.  (Yay to getting a second season).  I really liked how all the storylines progressed and how the show ended especially Penelope's storyline.  Going from someone who thought she had to die to help purgers to someone who was willing to save the purged upon.   I am really glad Penelope survived to the end.

 

  The only storyline that really disappointed in the end was Jenna, her husband, and Lila that storyline was the most disappointing.  I know people will hate that Jane dies and Penelope survives but that is essentially her storyline.  Its a survival storyline.  While Jenna and her husband were just outright boring until the end.  If any death disappointed me it would be Lila.

Again disappointed that Jane died but I get her death.  She was in alot of ways like Joe.   Someone who thought purge night would fix her problems only to have it not be what she thought or go how she wanted it to.

I'm really looking forward to Season 2. It looks like Penelope and Miguel will be back and probably Pete. It would be great to see all three return. I doubt Jenna would have anything to do in a new season since she is out of the country. No one else to return since everyone else basically died. Maybe the group of women who saved Jane would appear. Season one ends as the next purge a year later begins. So season two would cover the events of this new purge night with Miguel and Penelope doing their thing, Pete's Cantina serving as a sanctuary and a host of new characters and stories as well. Hopefully the new season comes sooner and we don't have to wait until all the way to September, 2019!!

I haven't watched the last episode, and I'm not that happy that it got a second season. I thought it was supposed to be a limited series "event". Like the Handmaid's Tale - I didn't watch all of the second season, because it was just too much. I haven't seen all of the purge movies, though - I thought the first one was a good concept, and watched the third one (?) when mum was in the hospital, just a few days before she died. I saw it somewhere online, where the political candidate is being hunted.

I kept going with season 2 of Handmaid's Tale, but I recognize at this point that the series has already moved beyond the book and is now its own thing.  I did like the conclusion of The Purge, some good moments with the shootouts and the bolt in the eye socket part.  And of course Miguel wasn't going to let Joe walk away after what he did and promising he was going to come after them again lol.  Rick was the worst of the main characters, weak to the end.  If a psycho is threatening to kill my wife and unborn baby I'm not going to sit there and hope for the best, I'm jumping on the guy.  I like Pete because I have always liked the actor, going back to Nurse Jackie.  He was also in Goliath as a corrupt cop.  Miguel is a one note snore of a character, but Penelope has the potential to be a fun action character.  She and Pete are the two reasons really to give season 2 a try.  Jenna on the run in Europe doesn't interest me.  The show will work if they just keep it to dumb action and minimize the moralizing.  We all know that the Purge is a monstrously inhumane concept best left to nightmares.

Handmaid's Tale, the torture porn was just too much - and that's basically what The Purge feels like to me, when they keep going with new movies. Like "The Strangers", too. I watched a movie like that with Milo Ventimiglia, on Amazon, but that had something in it that I really didn't expect (but have seen before, in another movie, years ago). I've just really gone off certain types of movies/shows in the last year or so. I'm not enjoying AHS, either. I thought the show (Purge) would do more than feature the usual violence, as others have mentioned. Show us how it started, the day and weeks after. Show us people dealing with what they've done, having to live with no legal consequences, but there are surely others, after murdering, raping, etc. And I doubt that everyone waits until purge night to get their own justice. 

Jane was the best character, and I knew that Penelope and her brother would survive. I'll have to watch this episode, just to see what Jenna is doing in Europe. Or just find a recap. 

I knew I recognized Pete from something else. Goliath - loved it.

I'm with you there. The moment they announced that Jenna was pregnant I knew that she was safe, but out of the three I was hoping she's die. Lila was somewhat complex and even though Rick was punchable, I did sympathize that he was probably someone who has seen some messed up stuff and tried to be better because of it. Jenna was just pregnant and lead both on, while having an air of superiority over the other two.

The second purge movie is the best one, but I'm with you on the Handmaid's Tale. The second season felt like boring torture open and I don't think the writers knew where to take the story. I think the Purge has a better chance, since there no book to base it on, but we'll see.

Here are the list of factoids they would show during the bumpers.

Quote

Purge Factoids

During the third episode, the American broadcaster of the series "USA Network" released these factoids about the Purge series by way of interstitial programming or bumpers.

Transcription of Factoids:

This season of The Purge takes place between the first and second films, exactly 10 years after the First Purge.

The Purge commences every year at 7pm on March 21st - a day before the first day of spring, the season of rebirth and renewal.

Blue Baptisia flowers - native to North America, resilient to death and toxic are the official flowers of The Purge.

OMF or "Original Martyr Family" refers to citizens who were on Staten Island during the First Purge.

In the world of The Purge, murder tourism is on the rise with people from all over the world looking to participate in the American holiday.

Now an iconic symbol in the world of The Purge, masks were worn on Purge Night to conceal a participant's identity.

In the world of The Purge, March 22nd is the busiest day of the year for hospitals and cell towers are overloaded with calls for loved ones.

The Matron Saints were founded by Mary Sandin, in response to the trauma her family suffered in The Purge (2013)

The red arm band wearing Anti-NFFA group is the precursor to Carmelo Johns' faction seen in Purge:Anarchy.

In the World of The Purge, travelling from the east coast to west coast on Purge Night will get you 3 more hours to Purge.

The show was shot on location in New Orleans, LA , but takes place in Anytown, USA

The 28th Amendment, ratified in 2018, turned The Purge into a nation-wide law.

In the world of The Purge, all emergency services are suspended. An unwritten law protects triage van drivers on Purge Night.

In the world of The Purge, the sale of high-tech security systems, panic rooms and firearms have seen remarkable growth.

Data, in the world of The Purge, has shown that three women are harmed for every man. The Matron Saints called this "Gender-cide."

In the world of The Purge, Purge Night insurance is the most expensive insurance currently on the market.

Pete's Cantina, inspired by Prohibition-era underground speakeasies, forbids violence of any kind on Purge Night.

In the world of The Purge, children under the age of 18 are prohibited from participating in the annual holiday.

High-ranking government officials were exempt from The Purge until the NFFA wanted to target an anti-NFFA Senator (Purge: Election Year)

Moreover, by the fifth episode, an exact date can be fixed, where these events are transpiring:

The timestamp on the security camera footage from the residence of David Ryker indicates that it is March 22, 2027 12:07 AM

Murder tourism? Ugh. 

Didn't Lila's family do something illegal, then, with her purging the night before her birthday? I guess since they're in charge, they can get away with it. Still, it's a really disgusting rite of passage.

If Joe was obeying the rules of The Purge, then how did he boobytrap the school and own the boobytrap materials before the purge started?

This season was stupid, not on the level of The Walking Dead, Season 1-4, but pretty stupid. I can't believe that after everything Jane went through, they killed her off in the penultimate episode. Joe's arc as vengeful white guy was dumb (though as others mentioned funny when the sirens went off) and wasted. The "rich" couple, we all knew Jenna wasn't going to die. Miguel and Penelope, meh. And I can not get over the Carnival of Flesh bothering to track Miguel down. How did they even know who he was? They already had Henry(?)'s money, dump his ass with the rest of the bodies and no one knows the difference!

This is shaggy dog story at it's worst. Jane and David are dead, so everything relating to their story doesn't matter. The Stantins and Rick are dead, so Jenna's story doesn't matter (for emphasis, Jenna ended up in France, which is considering the purge) and the rebels story didn't matter. Miguel and Penelope live and are heading out into the purge to save people, so yay? I honestly didn't care for these two and actively hoped Penelope would die. And Joe's dead and his whole purpose was ultimately kill Rick and Jane. I feel like the series would be better served with Jane surviving, the Purge ending on the second to last episode, and then an episode dedicated to the after (what happened to the rebels when the Stantins are found dead, what happened to Alison, how has the company changed after losing David, so on and so forth. 

As far as I'm concerned this was far better than The Mist (I dropped after the first three episodes) but must see TV it ain't. Maybe the second season will improve since the writers have some feedback available.

I'm watching The Purge: Anarchy, and wondering if real estate agents still have to disclose when a murder has taken place in a home they're trying to sell. 

It also started me thinking again, of what I would do if purge night existed. If you had a safe place to go, you might be tempted to take others (I know that I would), but you never know who might be holding the tiniest grudge, or a sociopath in disguise. 

The first two movies are on the FX Now app, that I downloaded for some reason (can't remember why, but it came in handy when I was stuck somewhere).
