Hurrican Sandy would make for a very dramatic background to the season finale but then the season would end without covering the election results.
Sorkin could just use what appears to be his favourite trick for The Newsroom: Flashbacks. The finale will take place during the night of the election as the cast act oddly towards one another due to unexplained events, while the meat of the episode will be set during the emotional events of the hurricane. Throw in some unresolved romantic tension between the entire cast and you have an Emmy-worthy script.
