  • The writers tried to make the best of a possibly bad situation, but they really didn't know this episode would be the last.

    In defense of the wonderfully talented writers of Men in Trees - As a result of the indefinite hiatuses, the writers strike and ABC's wishy-washy treatment of Men in Trees, when they filmed the "final episode" they didn't know that the show would be canceled. Sensing that ABC could pull the plug, they hastily filmed an alternative ending to "Taking the Lead" that attempted to tie up some loose ends. An additional 8 episodes were supposed to have been shot, but the strike and hiatuses threw that schedule off. The creators of Men in Trees thought enough about the fans to try to give some sense of closure. I have not doubt that if they had been allowed to continue with the other episodes, things would have been worked out to the satisfaction of most viewers.
