When I have finished interpreting each card in a spread, I like to sum up the reading. I just review the overall reading, pointing out the key points we covered. I always try to leave a reading on a high point. Even if the reading conveys bad news, I try to give the querent the tools to change events, based on the reading. A reading should be empowering for the querent, rather than a recital of things that may happen in the future. The key words are 'may happen', We have the power to influence and change the future.
