The network had promised viewers that instead, on April 12, episodes 7 and 8 would be shown back-to-back.
However, early on April 12, SBS announced that it would just air episode 7 and not 8. SBS did not post any reason for the sudden cancellation except to say that on Thursday night, it would adhere to the standard TV schedule.

“What a disappointment! And what exactly is the cause for the cancellation?” asked one fan, while another said, “Oh well, I guess it’s better than not being able to see any.”
