This is part one of the two-part season finale. Part two airs next week. Tonight’s episode is great, but it mainly serves to setup next week’s outstanding conclusion to the season. Co-creator and writer John Rogers (@jonrog1) and executive producer and director Dean Devlin (@Electric44) have put together a great pair of episodes to close out the season with lots of twists and surprises. Even as great as it is though, it still hard for me to pick it over an unseen episode of Psych, which has been one of my favorite shows since it debuted.
