In the end, Ally and Beverly are the last women standing, which further aggravates this point. Right before Beverly fatally shoots Kai in the head, Ally tells him, “You were wrong, there is something more dangerous in this world than a humiliated man: a nasty woman.”
It’s played for maximum impact, but it doesn’t make a lot of sense from a political perspective. Why did the Stein-voting Ally borrow the most empowering and memorable lingo from Hillary’s campaign? We don’t know if she regrets her vote, and there’s no follow-up that insinuates she’s changed her modus operandi offscreen. In fact, by episode’s end, when Ally pulls up her velvet green hood, we can assume she’s started her own cult built on the pillars of female rage. It’s a chilling notion, and a confusing one; it sends the message that in toppling the patriarchy, women establish their own toxic breed of power -- which seems antithetical to much of what came before, and confuses any feminist yarn the season might have been spinning.
