It’s never just about remodeling the kitchen, is it?

Tonight, the Sundance Channel’s first original scripted series wraps its first season with a finale that could find former death-row prisoner Daniel Holden (Aden Young) leaving his hometown for good. Daniel’s had a rough few decades — he was arrested and jailed 19 years before Rectify begins for murdering and raping his teenage girlfriend. Though new DNA evidence has shed doubt on his conviction — allowing Daniel to finally return home — he hasn’t yet been exonerated for the crime.

In this clip from the finale, a simple conversation about home improvement between Daniel and his mother (J. Smith-Cameron) leads to tears — and maybe some sort of emotional breakthrough. Just don’t expect it — or the rest of the episode — to reveal whether Daniel is guilty or innocent: as Smith-Cameron told EW last month, “I think that Daniel’s not sure what happened, so therefore it’s impossible to know.”

Rectify‘s season finale airs tonight at 10 p.m. ET on the Sundance Channel.
