Sorry, but you can't compare a cliffhanger to the resolution of a cliffhanger. As a cliffhanger, the Moldavian one was far, far, superior. As for the resolution of season 9's we can't compare that, since it never happened.
As for the cliffhangers themselves, they're ok. But the sloppy editing makes Alexis' and Dex's tumble over the balcony more hilarious than anything else.
As a wrap up to the was ok. Much better than the previous 2 seasons as a whole, but not quite up to the glory days of seasons 2 - 5. Probably on par with season 6.
