    I think the show is wonderful and it should be allowed to come back. If they do decide to cancel it; I wish they would at lease bring it back with an ending and don’t just leave us hanging without an ending.

    Deception is one of my most favorite shows ever. I’m not allowed to watch a lot of television but I always try my best to catch up in this show. It seems like I’ve been waiting for it to return!

    LOVE this show, Deception! Meagan Good is good; she plays a great role and I love the love/hate thing her FBI love & her have–although, I would like to see her end up with him. He is yum and great in his role! I love Tate; his character is the best at flip-flopping between bad & good guy. That look he had when he opened Ben’s door….woah! Serial killer Much!! The Dad, come on, there is a 90% chance he’s dirty & probably has blood on his hands. I hate to say it but most people who run a Billion dollar business & are crazy wealthy and in the public eye almost always are guilty & have many skeleton’s in their closets. Sophia is pretty but very scary and perfect for the mom of the whole house role. John Larroquette was a nice touch! Overall, love the show the cast is awesome!!! NBC, PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL THIS SHOW!!!!
