  • A great way to end the series and a great way to end the show. While annoying that the series is no more the episode was very well done.

    This epsiode, like the one where the police station is taken hostage, is directed exceptionally well. From the get go you knew there was something fishy about Digger, especially with his knowledge of a spy satellite being masked with a weather satellite, but you never could quite put your finger on how wicked he was. For him to be quite influential within the Phoenix group is brilliant.

    The questions you\\\'re left with at the end of the episode are along the lines of, how will the gang proceed without Digga? Will it raise suspicions about other members of the gang? How will John continue with Theresa, will he keep the name John Doe or take up his original name? What will happen with the sceptre, will the show move abroad to chart the trail of the sceptre and what possible insights into the character of John Doe will we learn?

    As it is, we\\\'ll never know the answers but the series did end on both a good and a bad point. John found Theresa but found an enemy at the same time. It\'s annoying the show got cancelled, but it was a good way to leave the series because it left you desiring the answers to questions without being wholly obsessed with the possible answers.
