I enjoyed the finale of Alias and thought it came together very well and answered a lot of old questions and finished off long term story lines. I pretty much thought that it was going to end with Vaughn and Sydney getting married, to me would have be too un-Alias like but would have closed off pretty much all story lines and they could have started up new next season. I was completely shocked with the last line of the episode and the final scene. When he reveals he was a bad guy and his name is not Nichale Vaughn and THEN the car crashed into them before the screen went black, I was completely stunned. I di not see that coming at all. And the best part was the camera angle from which they showed the car crashing into them. It was like you were in the car when it happened. I jumped when the car hot. A great ending for sure. I look forward to next season, although I am a fearing a amnesia story line.

I thought the season finale of Alias was BORING. Really there was not that much excitement. So Irina's sister is trying to take over the world. So Sydney has to fight her sister. Big whoop. They didn't give me a good enough reason to care about either Elena or Nadia, and bringing more of Sydney's family into the mix is just way overplayed at this point. The last scene was great for two reasons. Number one, I've been waiting ever since we first saw Vaughn for him to turn out to be a bad guy as a big swerve. But I waited and waited and it never happened. Now that I finally believed he was never going to turn out to be a bad guy BOOM they swerve us. Also it was great because the car getting hit when just one of those holy shit moments. So I give the last scene an A+ but the rest of the episode was worth maybe a D.
"My Doctorate is in Art History" was the highlight, though Leela not rejecting Fry and Bender getting his arm ripped off (by trying the same trick from the pilot) were a close second. Also, the last three movies were mired in mediocrity.
