Nice ending. Wrapped up everything well, provided an ending that could have been a good series finale, and then threw in a little bonus for fun. Should be a fun final 13 episodes next season.

Ditto. That's the kind of game changer I was really hoping to see too.

Nice to see that the series will be going out on its own terms next year. The possibilities based on the new scenario are great!

I'm calling it now -- Jeff is the mastermind behind everything (though his brain got fried in an Intersect experiment).

great finale... so does Chuck still have an active intersect in his head?

I assume not.

I thought Decker said that he was suppressing the intersect. Couldn't that be similar to what Chuck's mom did in Orion's lair?

Now I'm pissed that there will be only 13 episodes next season. I think it would be a lot of fun to watch the team function on the level they are, now.

I thought it was good.

Loved Casey's reaction to the Russians

Looking forward to next season.

Really well done episode. Didn't like the Richard Burgi character. Hope he is not back next year.
So with all the money they have, they could be jet setting crime fighters like Hart to Hart.

I usually prefer brunettes, but Yvonne looks much better as a blonde

WOW! Chuck delivers!

Glad they get their victory lap next year! It's been a great run for the little show that could

Awesome. I thought the pre-wedding flashbacks were well done. I don't remember a mention of Morgan being able to wed people. That plus the intersect gift at the end just made me think of Battle Pope. "When he's not leading Mass, he's out kicking ass!"

Yeah, when I saw that, I was half expecting it to end up being a dream sequence. But Morgan is the sort of person to be an ordained minister with the Universal Life Church, so I believe it.

As soon as Morgan got the intersect, I knew what the final line of the season would be.

Good episode. Should be interesting next year.

Volkoff points to a pic of Reagan and asks "Is he still in charge?" and then Casey replies "If only"

I literally screamed "You've got to be kidding me" as the end played out.

Bring on the final season! And thank you NBC for saying "This show does need to get a proper ending."
