The Dallas Police Department vehicle which pulls over Cliff Barnes' limousine is a final generation (1998-2011) Ford Crown Victoria. Dallas Police Department phased out the Crown Vic prior to 2003 in the wake of vehicle fires when rear-ended (Ford Motor Company installed trunk packs along with an optional fire suppression system since the 2005 model year) where the Dallas Police squads were either a 2003-09 Chevrolet Impala 9C1 or 2006-present Dodge Charger. As of 2013, no Crown Vics are used by the Dallas Police Department (the Dallas County Sheriff squads (white with black hood panels) Crown Vics are still in service until its total phaseout in 2016 or when the squads reach 160,000 miles - law enforcement agencies in the State of Texas usually retire police vehicles when they reach their end of its service life). Also, the white livery with a blue stripe (with the 'Dallas Police' seen in white letters) is no longer used after 2009. See more »

Great Salutation For An Epic Primetime Soap
16 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a lot of ways this episode makes it into a full circle. Regardless of how many loose ends this finale wraps up, it opens up more to continue the series. It even spins yet another salute to JR by displaying his portrait near the end of the show done in the same style as the portrait of Jock Ewing was done many years earlier after Jim Davis died.

As for who shot JR, the writers actually used Larry Hagman's real life battle with Cancer in explaining the shooting. It is interesting as for quite a while I was starting to think that Emma was developing into another Charlene Tilton Lucy type character. Not this time as at the end it appears she is going to be an evil female who is going to match up just fine with the evil trained John Ross. The question of what is in the suitcase of her dads leave open a lot of possible things for next season.

Cliff in the meantime is trying his best to keep the family feud going by making Elena his pawn to get back at his daughter Pamela and the Ewings for an elaborate frame engineered by JR that lands him in jail. It seems he has proof JR swindled Elena's dad. Meanwhile a rift has developed between her and Christopher.

There are a few things during this show that do not make sense. Still, the results of Ryland's daughter putting him away and Bobby trying too end the feud by destroying Cliff slowly and methodically are very satisfactory. It looks for a long time like everything is going to be peaceful and we are going to have a happy ending. Ah, but this is Dallas and if this is the finale for the show for good, this one is a fitting ending to be sure.
