Before you give us your thoughts on the episode

The CBS All Access dramedy — which has already been renewed — wrapped up its first season on Thursday, after weeks of teasing us about which characters would ultimately kick the bucket. (If you predicted Jade, Karl, Rob and Ralph as the finale’s victims, you might want to splurge on a lottery ticket soon.)

Before you give us your thoughts on the episode, let’s recap what happened in “Kill Me As If It Were the Last Time”:

BETH ANN | The finale begins in 1962, when Beth Ann and Rob are first touring the Pasadena mansion. Beth Ann is surprisingly candid with the realtor about the loss of their daughter, and Rob pulls her aside, begging her to stop telling strangers about that tragedy. Beth Ann insists they don’t need a new house right now, but Rob counters that he wants a fresh start after what happened to Emily. If Beth Ann will let Rob buy this house for them, he’ll spend every day trying to put a smile on her face — “the one I fell in love with.” Ugh, Rob.

Then, we’re back in ’63, and an extra-chipper Beth Ann informs Rob that she bought a revolver, lying that there’s been a rash of robberies in town and she wants to defend their home. She’s even loaded the bullets already, to save time in case someone breaks in.

Soon enough, we find out what Beth Ann is really up to: She’s concocted a plan for her and abused neighbor Mary to kill their respective husbands. (episode free gems And she delivers that news to Mary with the sunniest of smiles on her face!) While both men are at work, Beth Ann gets the ball rolling. It all starts with a letter that Mary leaves for Ralph to find that evening, informing him that she’s unhappy and plans to leave him for Rob Stanton, who loves Mary better than Ralph ever could. But more on that in a minute.

TAYLOR | Once Eli is discharged from the hospital, he and Taylor head home, and they agree to make some changes: They’re going to sell their house and downsize for a bit, and they have no plans to include any new lovers in their marriage for a while. (This seems wise. And overdue.)

But when they get back to the house, they find Jade (and Teacup!), who is cooking dinner as if nothing ever happened. Taylor and Eli ask her repeatedly to leave, but Jade quickly becomes manic, refusing to go unless Eli pays her $10,000 from the sale of his script. Then, while Taylor and Eli are in a different room discussing how to proceed, Jade makes her escape; she’s not in the kitchen when Taylor and Eli go back in, and they call the cops when it looks like she’s fled the house. Meanwhile, a different set of cops shows up a few minutes later, looking for intel on who might have killed Duke

almost exactly 24 hours to say goodbye to the current fortnites-iconic map

All the signs are there that this is the last time we’ll be seeing Fortnite’s iconic map in the game, at least for a while, as it looks like it’s definitely being replaced with an entirely new offering. The evidence is stacking up to such a degree it’s overwhelming at this point:

All season long, Epic has been teasing a final event for the map called “The End.”

The entire theme of the season has been a farewell tour to the current map, not adding any big changes when the season launched, but slowly bringing back old areas like Retail Row, Greasy Grove and Dusty

Data miners have found the names of at least a dozen new locations that are not currently in the game when a new season traditionally only spawns 2-3 new zones at max.

Yesterday, a teaser for Fortnite season 11 leaked on the Italian iOS app store, and showed something that was very clearly a new map full of never before seen landmarks all heralded by a “Chapter 2” banner.

So yeah, this is it. The End, as promised.


Since Fortnite’s original Battle Royale launch, the map has itself become a character in the game, as have many of its zones. Players may swap skins daily, but the zones became fixtures in the game, as everyone had their favorite landing areas from Pleasant Park to Tilted Towers. New areas would come and go, but this single, evolving map was a core staple of the game.

But yes, it’s time.

Fortnite v buck generator has added huge chunks to each corner of the map save one, and they’re sort of running out of room now just replacing areas they’ve already replaced once or twice. And you have its competitors out there like PUBG and even Apex Legends that have already brought in new maps to keep things fresh. Fortnite needs an entire new island (if it will be an island) to get players re-engaged and exploring again.

Still, I have a lot of fond memories for the current map. Yes, that sounds kind of weird because this isn’t exactly Skyrim where I’m exploring a big landscape doing quests. And yet I have played countless games on this map, and have written dozens, if not hundreds of guides exploring every inch of the new and old zones. It feels like a sort of video game home, in a way. A violet home where other residents are always shooting at me, but a home all the same. I think most players have their favorite shooter maps from titles like Call of Duty (Nuketown), Counterstrike (de_dust) or Halo (Blood Gulch). Fortnite kind of takes that to a whole new level because every game has been on variations of this map, and it’s core to the game’s identity.

So when does Season 10 end and Season 11 begin? Well, according to Epic Games

Fortnite: Battle Royale, and things are about to change in some very big ways.

When exactly that event occurs remains to be seen. In fact, while all bets have pointed to this coming Saturday, October 5th, it’s possible that ‘The End’ might take place the following weekend.

That’s because Epic Games is extending Season 10 and adding in ‘Out Of Time’ Overtime challenges with cosmetic rewards and a free loading screen for completing each of them.

So when does Season 10 end and Season 11 begin? Well, according to Epic Games, the Out of Time Mission will be available from Tuesday, October 8 at 9 AM ET until Sunday, October 13 at 2 PM ET.

Is it possible that ‘The End’ event will take place when the Overtime Challenges expire? Or will it take place before these challenges kick off?

It seems likely that the new v buck generator season will start when these challenges are over, either that Sunday or the following Thursday, October 17th. After all, Thursdays are when Fortnite seasons usually end. This appears to be backed up by dataminers following today’s patch, with the API showing a Season 10 end-date between October 13th and 17th. Season 11 will be coming out just a couple weeks before Halloween.Today In: Innovation

It would be interesting if the big season-ending event took place this weekend and then we had an entire week or more of Season 10 left before the start of Season 11, especially if that event is supposed to lead to a new map (or drastically changed one).
