The finale was nice, it wrapped things up well.

The only thing I didn't like was the questions/comments at the panel for Pam, basically criticizing her for being upset at Jim over his job in Philadelphia. I didn't really understand this or why they weren't criticizing Jim instead, who I felt was much more at fault. He put Pam in an impossible situation. I thought that part of the panel was weird and wasn't necessary.
That's interesting, because if you read the Television Without Pity episode threads, the tone is generally very anti-Pam. Some of those panel questions could be directly ripped from the posts over there.

I think they were pretty equally at fault, but motivated by realistic fears and desires. A lot of people didn't like their conflict this season, but I thought it is fairly true to both their characters and a sort of marital conflict in general.

As for the overall finale, I thought it was pretty good. I liked the preceding two episodes better, but this was a nice bow on top of the closure already given.
