Truth Be Told Season 3 Review:
Consequently, Truth Be Told ends with a passable finale that establishes this season as an improvement over season 2’s misstep and sets this criminal drama back on course. It’s not flawless, but it’s still a respectable watch. The huge Sybil revelation at the end was surprising, and I must admit that I thought Finney was the bad guy while actually serving Ochoa. I’m quite delighted to have been proven wrong in that regard!
The climax leaves a few loose ends, particularly the resolution involving Shreve and the Markus case, but overall, the major case is satisfactorily resolved. The finale makes the journey worthwhile in the end, even though the show might have benefited from a tighter framework and a run-time of 6 or 8 episodes for pacing purposes.
