AMC [[CutShort cancelled]] the show after a single 10-episode season due to fairly abysmal ratings and lukewarm at best critical reaction. Despite this, very little was LeftHanging and the show rolls pretty well as a self-contained one-off.

Already missing a night's sleep after [[spoiler: informing the families of [=McCann=]'s victims of the cover up]], he gets beaten up after aggravating a group of workmen, seems to have a mild heart attack after a failed attempt to flee the country, car-jacks a woman trying to help him out, and finally comes close to suicide after an emotional confrontation with his ex-wife.
