I'm still baffled as to why people continue to think the series finale would be different than any other episode on the show. This has been their modus operandi since the pilot, Brian and Kelly have kept the formulaic style that Miles and Gough instituted. There were surface changes only. Essentially the series finale was no different than any of the previous seasons. I agree that they treated it like a season finale, but again...that wasn't a surprise. This whole season should have been something epic and special but because the producers only cater to a certain faction of the fandom of this show the rest of us get screwed.
