Fellows cheated. Writers aren’t supposed to end a story with a death!!! That’s like letting your protagonist escape a situation by waking up. “It was a dream.” If the next installment were coming next week, it’s be okay. Now we have to wait forever to find out what happened next. Like “Who shot JR?” It worked for him though. When we spent a month in Romania “back in my day,” if we said we were from Texas, the next question was Dallas? I was soooo disappointed and sad for the family.
