When you are dealing with a procedural show that features different stories every week, it’s difficult to predict what a season finale is going to be like. With Almost Human, that was certainly the case.
The case of the week was at certain points in “Straw Man” a boring case to follow, but it got more interesting towards the end. What was unexpected though was the enormous focus on both Dorian and John, individually. For most part of the episode, it was about Dorian and him getting evaluated.
The scenes where John, Rudy etc were giving their opinions were some of the best moments of the finale, especially with Rudy saying that he trusts Dorian so much that he would trust him with his baby if he ever had any. Out of all supporting characters, the writing for Rudy is the one that stand out the most.
