I was really fascinated by the ending, actually. The way the Judge set the Kid up as a Judas, very heavy on the biblical (or satanic) imagery during that conversation in the cell.

This felt almost like a dark myth at times. Weird book. I truly feel like McCarthy discovered this Judge character in his head one day and created a place for him to exist in equilibrium, and that place was Blood Meridian.
