Get Even bows out gracefully in “Get Justice”, with plenty of potential for a second season but a satisfying closer to tie a bow around this mystery.
This recap of Get Even season 1, episode 10, “Get Justice”, contains spoilers. You can check out our thoughts on the previous episode by clicking these words.
We’ve reached the Get Even finale, fittingly titled “Get Justice”, and we open pretty much where we left off, with Logan explaining about his time teaming up with DGM to go after Ronny. Despite he and Christopher’s efforts at proving a point, though, he claims to be innocent, though it’s difficult to tell at this point.
It being an ending, Get Even episode 10 finds a lot of personal subplots reaching natural termination points as well, or at least rapidly approaching them, including Olivia opening up to her mum about her alienation – though not her sexuality – and John confessing his love for Bree. She rejects him, obviously denying her true feelings.
From there, “Get Justice” reveals more of the truth surrounding Ronny’s death, an ill-fated attempt at exposing wrongdoing cooked up between Christopher and Logan that went badly wrong when Logan, having lost it, pushed Ronny out of the window. The same occurred again when he confronted Mika. His confession comes to Margot, as part of a larger and more elaborate DGM sting that seems perhaps a touch contrived but nonetheless manages a note of catharsis given nine prior episodes of build-up.
Logan is arrested, though he promises a second season with a veiled threat about the DGM being in grave danger. They’ll be ready for it, since Get Even season 1, episode 10 finds them pledging to secretively continue their work, threats be damned, and if this likable first season is anything to go by, they’ll get the opportunity to do so.
A second season has plenty of little threads to tug on, ones related to both plot and character – an apparently secret society, some shady behavior from the school principal, unresolved romances between both John and Bree and Olivia and Amber, and so on and so forth. But “Get Justice” also provides what is pretty unmistakably an ending, and it’s always satisfying when that happens, especially given how rare it is on Netflix.
