This started making my skin crawl around the halfway point. The ending comes as a relief, despite or because of the violence.

It’s a cliché ending, and maybe too easy—a way to cut short a painfully familiar, believable scenario that isn’t really going anywhere. But I have to admit I prefer the easy ending.
