There is a definitely a tragically beautiful moment of climax here. Black Bolt essentially realizes his own personal failings, but too late to escape the consequences of those mistakes. It is very sad to watch him apologize to the others that his overconfidence in taking action himself has caused everyone to fall, only then in the finale to have to do the exact same thing again (relying on his powers, not letting anyone else know the action he is going to take) and destroying everyone because at that point the situation had become so desperate that there was no other choice.
There are two problems with this though.
A) The impact of this is much lessened because Cates unfortunately pulls his punches. The tragedy of the "death of the Inhumans" is kind of weak when every single major character survives. Who died? Triton and then a bunch of characters nobody cares about (Sterilon and Naja are the only ones I can recall). There should have been real impactful losses.
B) I think the tragic fall of Black Bolt I outlined above requires throwing Saladin Ahmed's great Black Bolt series under the bus a bit. In that series Black Bolt had to get out of a situation without his powers and through relying on others. But apparently he didn't learn a damn thing!
So a mixed bag of emotions for me on this. There are things I like about it and things I don't. At least Olivetti and Bellaire made it look good. I would be interested in hearing what others thought about this conclusion.
