“Miracle Workers” Ends its First Season With a Satisfying Conclusion

107CSo, I really dug the first three episodes of Miracle Workers and I really dug the book, What in God’s Name, that the show was based on. With all that said, I was immensely curious as to whether or not the show would stick the landing with its final four episodes. Would it end in a satisfying way or would it just sort of fizzle out? Thankfully, it managed the former, with each of the four final episodes being better than the last, all culminating in a finale that brought all of the plot threads to a nice, satisfying close while also concluding many of the character arcs that had been set up. While different from how the book ended, the finale of Miracle Workers worked perfectly for what the TV series had set up.
