Good series finale. Not that great storywise, because some scenes looked like they've been taken from "24" or some other action show, but awesome as always when it comes to character depth and relations between members of Team One. AND I'm glad they've chosen to go with a happy ending :)

and thats the end of that.

I liked this show thought it could have continued tbh

So it's getting to be pretty clear how the show is going to play out. I always figured Julies and Sam would leave to start a family, but it's now looking like Ed is going to take over for Team One when Greg finally steps down which I can see happening either by choice or by death before the final episode. Just not sure what gonna go on with Spike.

Ah I took it that they were so fixated on what they missed because the shooting rattled them so much.

The problem is the rule being "Shoot to kill" only. This was an obvious "Shoot to wound" situation. Everybody knows it but tries (and fail - Ed) to convince themselves that they did nothing wrong because they followed the "rule".

Except Raf who can't stand that rule because it leaves no place to choices.

But for some of them, their problem is barely even the shooting itself but why they didn't see it coming. As if the shooting was secondary.

But I rewatched the ending and I saw how hard they have to swallow it so I'm good with that. :)

What was your problem with how things played out at the end. It made sense for Ed's character to do what he did and for Raf to have his problem with what happen. I didn't really grasp what your main conclusion was from your post.

Indeed although I have to agree with Raf. And that makes the ending a bit moronic as it adds up to the many reasons why some cops and soldiers go completly wacko.

When the rules try to enforce black and white decisions in situations that are not. Maybe the "Shoot to kill" only up to now was acceptable and the writing makes it questionable in this episode (repercussions later ?) and if not, the writing itself is questionable to me. (I know my father would've jump straight up calling bullsh*t at this "decision". :lol: ).

Anyway. Was good until the end. Still best cop show out there.

What a spectacular episode!

I just love this show so much. It's without a doubt one of the best cop shows ever just because the people actually react to things that happen in a way I'd think normal people would react. I can't believe there are that many Jack Bauers in the world, but I can believe there are many Ed Lanes.

Also, I know a guy who actually knows Hugh Dillon so that makes me practically related to the great character he plays, right? ;)
