The episode where Tim visits the finalists at home is always one of my very favorites. I love seeing Tim traipsing around the Midwest or some other area where he looks completely out of place. I love it when he does things we never see him do ordinarily.

In a day when Lost can't wrap up their six-year run without negating everything that came before it, and even 24 can't end with a bang, it's nice to see a final episode, even just a season finale, go out with a little style.
