Time has finally run out for the first season of Hulu's horror-drama anthology Castle Rock – and possibly for the town itself – as a number of questions begin to get answered in the Sam Shaw/Dustin Thomason series. Combining elements from a number of Stephen King's works into a "shared universe" narrative that's based around the (in)famous fictional town, Castle Rock stars Andre Holland, Bill Skarsgard, Melanie Lynskey, Sissy Spacek, Jane Levy, Scott Glenn, Terry O'Quinn, Noel Fisher, Chosen Jacobs, and Allison Tolman.
With this week's season finale 'Romans,' we have a "Crisis on Infinite Deavers" on our hands with Henry (Holland) faced with the (multiple) realities of what "Henry" (Skarsgard) truly is. Is there an end to the cycle, and is Molly (Lynskey) the key? Or is the town of Castle Rock already beyond redemption?
Is The Kid the cause of all this misery? Or is he merely a side effect?

Castle Rock s01e10 'Romans': Somebirds can be caged
Before Wednesday's season finale episode of Hulu's Castle Rock, take a few minutes to get caught up on Bleeding Cool's thoughts on the series so far with a look back at our reviews of the season's previous three episodes (beginning with last week's 'Henry Deaver'):
Castle Rock s01e09 'Henry Deaver': A world beyond these walls.
Castle Rock s01e08 'Past Perfect': Newcomers set up shop in Castle Rock, Henry follows a clue.
Castle Rock s01e07 'The Queen': Memories haunt Ruth Deaver.
A psychological-horror series set in the Stephen King multiverse, Castle Rock combines the mythological scale and intimate character storytelling of King's best-loved works, weaving an epic saga of darkness and light, played out on a few square miles of Maine woodland.
The fictional Maine town of Castle Rock has figured prominently in King's literary career: Cujo, The Dark Half, IT and Needful Things, as well as novella The Body and numerous short stories such as Rita Hayworth and The Shawshank Redemption are either set there or contain references to Castle Rock. Castle Rock is an original suspense/thriller — a first-of-its-kind reimagining that explores the themes and worlds uniting the entire King canon, while brushing up against some of his most iconic and beloved stories.
From J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Lost), best-selling author Stephen King and executive producers/writers Sam Shaw and Dustin Thomason, Castle Rock stars André Holland (Moonlight), Melanie Lynskey (Togetherness), Bill Skarsgård (IT), Jane Levy (Suburgatory), Sissy Spacek (Carrie), Scott Glenn (The Right Stuff), Terry O'Quinn (Lost) and Chosen Jacobs (It).
