    This episode should have been the last of the series, and it certainly the last one that have cared to watch. Joel and Maggie's "hero's journey" is a wonderful interputation of the classical mythical journey, and the script for this part of the show is beyond excellent! That portion of the episode that deals with Chris and Dr. Capra is as bad as the portion that deals with Joel and Maggie, but that in no way diminishes the impact of this issue, for me at least. . . it is the perfect ending to Joel and Maggies relationship, and would have been the perfect ending to the series
  • The episode that SHOULD have ended the series, this brings Joel (and Maggie) full circle from episode 1.

    The episode that SHOULD have ended the series, this brings Joel (and Maggie) full circle from episode 1. Joel returns to the world a changed man, changed by Alaska, by Cicely, and by each and every person he's met in the past six years. Maggie comes to terms with who she is, and how she can be content without a desperate need to define her role in life or justify her decisions. If you are watching the series, don't even bother with the drivel that comes after this; the writing is poor and stiff, and other then the last musical montage in the last episode, forgettable and disappointing.
