I find the current trend towards "finale" episodes to long-running
series to be counterproductive to reintroducing those series in
reruns (a reason, perhaps, that most reruns omit those episodes in
their rotations). I would have chosen to leave *all* of the
outstanding issues in FK unresolved:  no attempt to bring Natalie (or
Tracy) across, no killing off major characters, just "any other episode".

If I'd *had* to write a final episode that was a capstone on the
series (and not just another
murder-of-the-week-and-neck-of-the-week), it might have been
something that pushed Nick so far into the public eye that he would
have *had* to fake his death and relocate. With or without Nat, with
or without Lacroix. Possibly leaving Vachon to follow in his
footsteps, or to help Nat and/or Tracy find out where and why he's
gone (or stop them from finding out).

The bloodbath was, IMO, unnecessary.

It's almost like a temper tantrum, isn't it? My show was cancelled, so I'm
going to take all the toys home/kill everyone off, so no one else can play
with them!

When LK aired, I was at home because of a bleeding boiled in a place where I
couldn't sit comfortably, so we had arranged for the local party to call me
after the end. I'm pretty sure the first words out of my mouth were, "What
the F was that?" (In front of my Mom, no less. She agreed with me, too.) It
was almost the proverbial car crash. You knew something horribly wrong was
happening, but you couldn't take your eyes off it.

Hugs and Kisses,
