    That was sixteen episodes?!? And the present plethora of loose ends is an end-of-season cliffhanger?!?
    The season just flew by!! I just checked Wikipedia, to see if I'd missed something.

    Last night was a ball game, and so I ended up watching both this and Jeopardy Masters on playback.

    The last minute or so of the season finale put a gigantic smile on my face and gave me the biggest laugh of the entire episode.

    Now imagine a full season that starts in September and ends in May, and is only 6 episodes longer.

    Roz!!! The moment I saw the back of her head, I knew it had to be her! Second time in as many months I've have had that reaction about a beloved character returning in a reunion show. :D

    The rest of the episode was wonderfully sweet. I loved how the crux of the case was the very essence of who Abby is, even to the point that Dan was moved. This two-parter was this season's best and I can only hope the second season will only get better.

    I also hope Roz's return wasn't just a one-off cameo!

    When the hell did Olivia become my favorite character?

    I was spoiled that there would be a surprise guest at the end. The sad part is I kept waiting for it to be Harry.

    While I certainly hope the show gets renewed, it occurred to me that the final moments could work fairly well, not just as a cliffhanger for next season, but as a closing punch line if it really is the end. It works better as a cliffhanger, but if it had to be the end of the series, it would make a decent parting shot.

    But you bring up a good point.

    D'oh! As reported in this very thread back in February. I forgot.

    For that, you would need a séance. (And remember: Edgar Cayce was not a medium: he was an extra large.)

    She's definitely grown on me. I think the ep with the tech bro where she tried to nerd was where I really started to like her.

    Neil is still the only one I can't quite connect with.

    I'm still lukewarm on Olivia; the one thing I like most is her grudging friendship with Abby. I still thing de Beaufort gives too broad and stagey a performance. It's like she's performing in a musical while everyone else is in a play.

    I guess I'd rank the main characters as:

    Dan
    Gurgs
    Abby
    Olivia
    Neil

    It's wonderful. She's in some manic version of His Girl Friday.

    Olivia does tend to do that. Rather like mold.

    If Roz is the premiere episode of the second season I'll make sure I'm in front of my TV two hours early just so I don't miss it. :)

    A little shoutout to Jeff DeWitt as the evil prosecutor. DeWitt often plays douchey characters, and he's damn good at it.

    You mean Kurt Fuller. Jeff DeWitt was the name of his character:
