While the UK fans have a bit to wait before they get to watch the season finale of Torchwood: Miracle Day, its American fans are sounding off.

In the season’s startling conclusion, “The Blood Line,” fans witnessed some clever twists in the series as fans learned what was behind the Miracle and the Blessing. At the same time, characters they’ve come to know very well meet their end – for better or for worse. And then there’s a big surprise that involves the unflappable Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman) and Rex (Mekhi Phifer).

As our favorite tweet of the evening from BryanCoffee states, "WOAH WHAT THE F--K TORCHWOOD, WHAT THE F--KING F--K"

After watching the finale, viewers took to Twitter to express their amazement, confusion, or straight up anger. Here are the opinions that caught our eye.

Eh:

"#TORCHWOOD done for the season. Not sure how I feel about that ending. Less satisfying than I'd hoped, with the twists that limit direction." -- lauraviau

"probably give #torchwood #miracleday a 7 and that's if I was being generous. too much filler, unsatisfying ending, predictable deaths." – demonicdrphil

"Well, that was what it was. Interesting, if a little overly drawn-out plot. Kind of a weird note to end it on, but it was okay." -- 40to12

"Torchwood: Actually didn't hate a Rusty finale for once, but I think it's because I utterly stopped caring and just LOLed a lot. Ah well." – roaratorio

"#Torchwood finale had brilliant moments and probably the finest scene from Barrowman ever. Not sure it redeemed overall lackluster season." – Thirdsphere

"Pretty sure if you looked up "sound and fury, signifying nothing" in the dictionary, you'd see a picture of the Torchwood finale." – tvoti
