Well, if you're a SOTN fan, you kinda owe it to yourself to at least watch the final episode.

Yeah, they definately didn't secretly re-write Ellis's script. That's a big no-no in the industry. Look at all the writers attached to the Spiderman movie to see how writing can be such a clusterfuck. Also, Ellis is actively promoting the show on his twitter, it's definitely his.

Also, I felt like Ellis included a lot of subtle fan service regarding Castlevania lore. I don't even fancy myself a big aficionado of the lore, but I caught some subtle jokes that made me smile...and then there's the scene with them jumping on the giant gears, the use of the axe/holy water...all pretty faithful to the basic lore. And I honestly appreciated that he made Trevor kind of cynical/sarcastic...the show's humor is a bright spot for me. Not totally in your face, but just enough to lighten the mood a bit and add a chuckle here and there.
