While we were all expecting Horatio to fall in the season finalie, what we didn't expect and where the true cliffhanger of the season lies in my opinion is the last scene with Ryan and the infamous text message he recieves. What could this mean for the character many of us have grown to love? Has Ryan become the new villian of the team? What were those writers thinking doing that to us?!?! I have made my theories known in the spolier thread, but I thought this question specificaly deserved its own thread. What do you all think? What is Ryan's role in the whole "staged plan", if it's even staged at all? And if he's headed for the "dark side" like a lot of people are seriously suspecting, what would be Ryan's reasons for it? Let's have a nice discussion here, with honest reasons and no Ryan bashing. To start, let's analyize the final scene and the "look" Ryan gave. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4q1D7p6YaU0 I think honestly, he looked tormented in the first seconds after seeing the text, like he was unconfortable with doing something. After that, that "cold look" he displayed could be that, but I think it's determination. It's his mind telling him "The plan is in motion...I know what I have to do." What does everyone else think?
