'Bored to Death' finale: X-Acto knives cut deep and other observations


It's the end of the season, so Jonathan (Jason Schwartzman) must being taking the next step with a sexually aggressive sociopath.

After one date with Nina (Zoe Kazan), the writing student with the disciplinary teacher fetish, it looks like she'll be moving in. But that's just a little set up for Season 3 brushed out of the way at the beginning, because "Bored to Death," as always, is about the boys.

All we know of him is that he's tall and is skilled at parkour.
