In the Dark, the controversial season finale of The CW’s “little crime drama that might,” ended on September 5. The startling In the Dark season 4 finale brought Murphy’s journey to a close after many turns and turns. In the Dark follows the ups and downs of Murphy Mason (Perry Mattfeld), a blind lady who tries to look into the murder of her close friend, throughout four seasons. Her life, as well as the lives of her closest friends and coworkers, are completely upended as she digs more into the truth.
After the events of the third season finale, Murphy is in jail as the fourth and final season of In the Dark begins. Murphy finds herself amid problems that never turn out the way you want them to as she fights to adjust to her new circumstances. Murphy does not necessarily have a happy ending, even if she eventually goes to trial and strikes a bargain to serve as a CI for the police who had previously been trying to throw her in jail. What transpired in that breathtaking, full-circle series conclusion, then?
In season four of In the Dark, does Max Die?
Regrettably, yes One of the worst choices the series has ever made is to have Max (Casey Deidrick) die in the penultimate episode of In the Dark. Max is shot as he flees in the elevator after freeing Murphy from the failed fundraiser scam. Watching Murphy come to terms with what has occurred and what was taken from her is utterly heartbreaking. Josh (Theodore Bhat), while not having fired the gun, is fully accountable for Max’s passing since he made a decision that tipped the entire operation off. It’s horrible to see someone so dedicated to destroying Murphy’s life achieve just that. Max and Murphy were creating a life together after reaching a stable point. All of it vanished in a split second.
All viewers will undoubtedly experience the choice to murder Max in a different manner, but if you watched the Veronica Mars revival on Hulu, you are already familiar with this suffering. Once more, the protagonist appears to have a happy ending before abruptly losing everything for… the purpose of trauma? Max’s death wasn’t necessary for In the Dark to conclude on a therapeutic note for Murphy.

Once more on the run, the three depart in a car towards the rising sun and the vast unknown.
