I voted good, though it wasn't a phenomenal episode. Not as spectacular as previous finales. I am looking forward to next season, which hopefully isn't too far off.

I voted "good". A bit of a letdown after the set up of last week.

, since I kinda taken a claim to doing VB grading threads, please ask if I will be around to do one before setting up your own before the episode airs. It is only polite.

Now I know. Sorry.

Thought since it was a season finale, you would have it up by Friday morning ...

I thought the episode was a major letdown.

It was. Last week's was just non-stop action with a pretty interesting plot. This week, everything came to a screeching standstill. The revelation at the end that the whole thing was a set-up by Cocktease was interesting, but seemed to come out of nowhere (mostly because we haven't seen the character since early in the previous season).

But the real question is, who blew up H.E.L.P.er and possibly killed Number 24. My guess is one of the Moppets, but that'd be too obvious and I give the creators more credit than that.

The Monarch blew up H.E.L.P.er to get the Doc.

The major problem I had, while the ORB was a McGuffin, the fact is that they were playing up the family very much this season and not to have anything really resolved or talked about at the end was a major, major let down.

No. True, he strapped the explosive on H.E.L.P.eR, but Dr. Girlfriend left the detonator on the cocoon when she left to help Monarch after he put on his suit.

True. This season had no real focus or direction as opposed to seasons 1 and 2.

Average. Felt more like a early/mid season episode than a season finale. And the ending left me feeling "And the point of this was...." I'm thinking the last three episodes was nothing more than a long winded way of getting to the whole Brock quits revelation at the end of the show.

Nope. Dr. Girlfriend had a detonator and the episode made a point to show it being left behind.

yes

It was good but not phenomenal as in the past

***I think the thing is that before, a season was an individual unit

but seasons 3 and 4 got ordered at the same time; so overall, while season 3 was great and DID advance storylines, it didn't bring any major climax....but then again, because we should kind of think of "Seasons 3 and 4" as one long season, and I get the impression after this that many of our questions will be answered in season 4.
