The season (and possibly series) finale for Scrubs aired last night. It was clear that the episode was not intended to be a finale. Not only was there no cliff hanger (or closure), but the episode wasn't even sequential in the season. Kelso, the chief of medicine had retired two episodes ago, but he was back to work in the finale. The episode was probably picked because it was a themed fantasy episode that was distinctive.
This was originally supposed to be the last season for Scrubs. There are rumors it will be revived by ABC, or that the missing episodes will show up when the final season is released on DVD. Scrubs is one of my favorite shows, so hopefully the fact that the strike messed up this season means they will come back to finish it off right.
