    I think it's also the series finale as it wasn't picked up for another season.

    Well, Fox doesn't make that decision for another three weeks - the fall schedule often isn't decided until the day before the upfront presentation to advertisers (Fox's is May 20th).

    I think it will be

    Meredith for 2 reasons. She's hasn't been on the show much and she has that drug problem.

    Well the show was great. Fox has order 4 more shows but that doesn't mean the show will return. It's my favorite show so I hope it will return, if not then it ended in a very bad way.

    I don't understand why her dad doesn't just kill her like he killed her mother?

    Because this way, he knows who the enemy is. It's likely that the only reason he killed his wife was because she learned his secret, and the situation put him at too big of a disadvantage.

    I thought the season finale was quite good. The ending was not as "twisted" as the FOX promo led me to believe. It explained a lot of what was going on and wouldn't be the worse place to end the series. At least it wasn't a giant cliffhanger.

    I think there might be some other rules to the conflict between the two sides or else Jack might kill Tru. Or there might be some unintended consequences. Was there someone else with the power between Tru's mother and Tru?

    Her father doesn't kill Tru because she is his daughter. He also might not have known for certain that she had the power and since he lost it when he killed her mother, maybe he "doesn't have the right" to do so.

    There are still a lot of unanswered questions. It could be that Tru's father did kill her mother because he was losing the "contest" very badly and that was the only way to restore order. As Davis mentioned in an earlier episode, the death rate had dropped down when Tru's mother was operating. So, for every person she saved, Tru's father did not arrange the death of someone else.

    I don't understand why Luke didn't ask Tru for help. Did I miss something?

    Well, she was already reliving that day. Is it possible that she can relive a day twice? Has it been done before? I don't know. Jack's full of crap. Messing with fate? He's the one who goes out and chooses replacements to die. There's more to this than meets the eye...

    I admit I haven't been keeping up with the show, but I skimmed the episode guides on TV Tome. Interesting Yin-Yang premise with Tru and Jack and Tru's mom and dad. I am curious if any explanation has been provided about the motivations of both Jack and Tru's father.

    It's awfully convenient to have the crazed jealous ex-husband who just has to shoot someone, even with witnesses standing there, witnesses he doesn't then also shoot to cover his obvious crime. Why didn't they have the guy arrested for assaulting Harrison?

    Why didn't they tell that guy that Jack was sleeping with his ex?

    This was the biggest problem I had with the story. Ot made absolutely no sense that you would have a guy hold a gun to your throat and then not report it.

    Another hugse problem: Why did Davis not do something, anything, when he saw Jack talking to the guy? All he had to do was coast up, honk the horn and say a few choice words to Jack.

    Heck, why not just lay Jack out and keep him tied up for the day?

    A few really stupid plot holes.

    I've really enjoyed the show these last few weeks. At first I was sure it was headed for cancelation. But as the show has gone on and they got more into the backstory and the myth, I have really enjoyed it. I do hope it gets renewed, but it's doubtful because of Fox's track record.

    I finished watching the last 5 hours of the show last night (thank you, ReplayTV), and it built up some serious momentum by the finish of this season. For a while, I thought Davis was going to take the bullet for Harrison, but Luc was such a 2-dimensional throwaway character that it made storytelling sense to bump him off instead.

    A snippet from E Online:
    http://www.eonline.com/Gossip/Kristi...4/040503b.html
    "From Shannon: Tru Calling was fantastic last week! It gets better and better! Will come back next year?
    It is getting goood, no? Though the ratings are pretty dismal--Tru ranked a distant third on Thursday night, again. I've heard rumblings that Fox wants to take a chance and see how it does without Friends next season in the same time slot. Either way, you gotta hand it to 'em for sticking it out an entire season. Tru would have been DOA on another network."

    There's still this little show called "Survivor" to worry about next year.

    Wish they'd have had more FAITH (he he) in Wonderfalls.
