This episode was okay for me, with the A plot on Leslie being boring, but the B stuff with Ron and Chris was pretty great ("go for the pinwheel").
This season just hasn't really worked much for me though. I don't know exactly why, since I have generally enjoyed Adam Scott and Rob Lowe, but it just hasn't gelled like season 2 did. I do think part of it has been because of the lessening of stories for Tom "N" Haverford.
Still, P and R at a 75% funny quotient is better than most everything else comedy-wise on TV, so I'm not really complaining mind you.

In talking about the finale in an interview, the creator said they never really thought they'd have to solve Trudy's death. Which explains why the "clues" didn't really lead anywhere. Was the unopened Christmas present introduced before?
