Flight Path: The Final Episode review

10/10

I'm a huge fan of the show, & although it's over after tonight (July 11th), I thought the show ended on a good note. No musical number, but they did play a George Michael song at the beginning as a nod to past episodes.

Great episode in my opinion. I enjoyed seeing Jaime Murray from "Dexter" on Showtime guest star as the atheist who needed a heart to live. She adopted an American accent this time instead of her native UK one.

Good courtroom case, too, one that made you think. People questioning & in the process learning about their faith was a central theme. I'd probably rate this case as being in the Top 5 of all those presented by the show.

The vision that Eli had to piece together about the plane crashing was well-written. Basically, everything & everyone's connected. Grace (Katie Holmes) was mentioned repeatedly, although she didn't appear. Turns out she needed the heart after Jaime Murray died on the operating table.

It was particularly touching when Eli woke up in his hospital room to see Maggie sitting next to him. I really care about their on/off again relationship. They're meant for each other, but it's taken them awhile to realize that.

You got the feeling that they would eventually get back together like one of his earlier visions predicted during the 1st season (showed them married with kids as Eli was about to announce his candidacy for a public office).

Forward to Eli walking through the hospital corridor, where he comes upon a snow globe. He has another vision, & his dad (Tom Cavanagh) appears, beginning a conversation with Eli on everything that's happened to him in this episode. I found it very moving, especially when his dad told him that he was passing his "test" with flying colors & how proud he was of Eli.

His dad also mentioned how Eli still loves Maggie & how we wonder why God gave man free will. Once again, very well written & acted by all concerned. The show's emotional content often makes me think of "Highway To Heaven" that Michael Landon starred in in the 1980s.

The show then forwards to Eli back in the law firm, probably about to get another vision & case to win. He has pictures of all the people he loves, including his dad, brother, & Maggie. I wish there was more, but everyone involved with the show should be proud of how it ended.
