Anyone who wants to avoid seeing a spoiler in this thread knows how to do it.
The final episode and season displayed an interesting symmetry with the situations and events of the first episode and season. Justice was served, to some degree, closure was had, in some ways, and a loose end was allowed to remain loose. No pretty package tied with a bow.
I was somewhat disappointed in that ending. Fantasy/trance/dream sequences annoy me at any time, and the lack of a definite outcome is really appropriate to season-end, not series-end. It's a bit like reading a book where the last page has been torn out.
