The finale of THE MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY wrapped everything up with a big bow. All curious questions were answered and still left room for a season 2 with a cliffhanger.

What I liked about this episode is that it featured all the kids. They had a hand in battling the โ€œ big emergency.โ€ This is great for children to see and learn how working together can make a difference. I especially enjoyed all the surprise plot twists, sharing empathy for each other, and using humor to get a different perspective.

My favorite character has to be Constance (Marta Kessler). She has always stayed true as to who she is and her beliefs. I appreciate her dead-panned sense of loyalty. She just cracks me up.

Some might say THE MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY should not have brought most every aspect of the story to a conclusion, but I found it refreshing. It left me with a sigh of contentment for children who feel not seen or wanted. Now I am ready for what may come next if renewed.

It is available on Disney+.
