19-2: Season 4 brings the cop drama to an end in its final season and this is one show I am truly sorry to see go. Over the past four seasons, I have grown to love the characters on the show, and to even hate one or two a bit, but watching the characters grow as they are affected by happenings at the 19th and in their personal lives has been a real treat.

On the heels of Amelia de Grace's (Tattiawna Jones, The Handmaid's Tale) murder, partners Ben Chartier (Jared Keeso) and Nick Barron (Adrian Holmes, Arrow) vow to avenge her, doing whatever it takes. Witness Martine is in hiding, while Nick's current lover, Inspector Elise Roberge (Krista Davis), believes she is in the clear for killing Martine (unsuccessfully), and the wheels are in motion for a crackdown on organized crime, starting with Elise. Surprisingly enough, the Elise situation resolves in the first episode with her making a break for it, and the ramifications of her actions cause a huge power vacuum in organized crime in Montreal, which will be the cause of much woe throughout this final season for pretty much everybody.

Following a bombing at a local restaurant, the entire squad of the 19th is put on high alert and, with Ben not sleeping well since the loss of Amelie, he agrees to do some extra work helping out a detective on surveillance. At one point, the detective abandons her post, leaving Ben alone to watch the drug dealer and he makes a snap decision that will haunt him throughout the season.

Likewise, Audrey Pouliot (Laurence Leboeuf) makes a deadly mistake while she and Chartier are in pursuit of the bombing suspect, and she runs over a pedestrian, but Ben claims he was driving, to save her career. When Nick goes to the deceased's home to do the death notification, he becomes smitten with Farah, the grieving single mother, and their lives will continue to intertwine for the rest of the season, as he finds himself unable to stop interfering with her criminal ex-husband in order to protect Farah and her remaining son.

The 19th gets a new officer in Roxanne Dionne (Aiza Ntibarikure), a petite, attractive black woman that Tyler Joseph (Benz Antoine), Richard Dulac AKA "the rookie" (Alexander De Jordy), and Bear Hamelin (Mylène Dinh-Robic) all immediately find intriguing. Dionne can definitely hold her own and it won't take long for her to choose the one she likes, but will it work out?

When an organized crime strike puts Audrey in the line of fire, the entire 19th comes running to her aid, all except troubled J.M. Brouillard (Dan Petronijevic), who is parked only a few streets over, but turns his radio off and ignores the call of his fellow officers. When pretty much the entire squad turns on him because of his cowardice, he takes drastic measures and almost dies because of it, but miraculously lives to finally get a shot at redemption when the 19th is attacked by an armed gunman.

By the time the season draws to a close, you get the sense that things will go on for the officers of the 19th and they will be okay, with some good things in their future. Chartier has finally shed the nickname "Bambi" and proves it in the final episode, and we get to see a lot of faces of those we lost, both good and bad, throughout 19-2's run as Nick muses about old times, which is a really nice way to close things out. I do wish there had been some special features, maybe a cast retrospective or something, since this is the final season, but alas, there was nothing. Still, if you've been following the show, you'll definitely want to see how things play out.
