Sam turned Robin in to the Lillian Board of Directors, and as such, Robin has been indicted for insider trading. Rebecca is standing by Robin, although she, deep in her heart, knows that Robin, in her own words, is going to fry. But at least she has the solace in knowing that Sam, her friend, was not the one who turned Robin in. When she finds out that it was Sam - she finds out when the Lillian Corporation sells the bar back to Sam for $1 (actually 85¢) - Rebecca is livid. She decides to leave Cheers forever and forget it ever existed, and to head off to wherever Robin is.

Sammy's Got The Bar Back!
8 May 2011 | by (New York, NY USA) – See all my reviews

As a reward for turning in Robin Colcord, Sam regains ownership of Cheers.

Finally! No more corporate ownership of the bar... This is a bittersweet episode… it's satisfying to see the bar return to Mr. Malone since the show was always built around that premise, but the events in this episode permanently displace the character of Rebecca: she would never be relevant again. Once Sam gets the bar and Rebecca gets fired by the corporation there is no reason for her to be at Cheers. The writers temporarily toyed with the idea of having her wait tables and then quickly hired her on as "bar manager" which was an just excuse for her to wander around counting receipts in a cigar box. Get real.

For those keeping score, this is the episode in which Sam finally bangs Rebecca, but of course it's just at the exact second that Robin Colcord comes swooping in to pronounce his true love for her. Isn't that just always the way? In many ways, this is the true Series Finale for the show… the next three seasons would be shaky in story lines and repetitive in punchlines. (Here's a heads-up for those of you who might not know it: Norm likes beer.) The premise of the show ended with this episode, as Sam gets his bar back and sleeps with Rebecca.

Cheers would never be the same after this season- there would be brilliant lines and great single episodes but this represents the last of the ongoing story lines, romances and new characters that were the hallmark of the show. See you in Season Nine!
