  • One of the best episodes I have ever seen! Lifetime ended our show on a positive note with a few surprises.

    I must say that I am very happy as to how Wild Card ended. Although I\'m sad to see it go, I was very pleased with the episode. The part that I loved most was the fact that Lifetime did exactly as we fans asked them to do: Let Zoe and Dan get together. I think that should Wild Card had continued, Zoe and Dan\'s marriage would have added some positive effect\'s to the show. Good Job Lifetime!moreless
  • Zoe and Dan accidentally get married in the series finale.

    I can't explain why, exactly, but I definately loved the series finale to Wild Card. It is one of my favorite shows (though I didn't start watching until just before it ended). I am still sad that it is gone, though it has been awhile. I am so glad that Zoe and Dan ended up together. I'm sure that we could all see that coming, though. They've always had a thing for each other. Though, they could easily have had it annulled since they were working on a case. Can you imagine digging up a body on your wedding night, though? That would suck.

    I miss Wild Card, but since evidently it is not coming back, it will live on in repeats, which I will continuously watch for a long time to come.moreless
  • The final episode of the series with excellent conclusions!

    This was the best episode of the whole series and the reason why there should have been a series 3! All the characters came together, including the talents of Leo and M. The line that Elyse throws to Leo: "keep your bedroom door unlocked and don't shave your back" was hysterical as was the rose petal stuck to Zoe's face as she walks down the aisle!! Although possibly the condom sketch even topped that !!

    I have only just caught this series in the UK in the middle of the night !! Missed it first time round - definitely my loss!!moreless
  • The series finale of "Zoe Busiek: Wild Card" (as of known in Canada) was one of my most absolute favourite episodes!

    The series finale of "Zoe Busiek: Wild Card" (as of known in Canada) was one of my most absolute favourite episodes!

    I never got a chance to see the whole thing, but I did see the episode twice, both times, one half of the other part of the episode. First time, it was the ending half. The second time, it was the beginning half. Putting it all together, I can say that it is one of the best episodes that the series ever aired! ;-)
