As the show progressed I started to think perhaps this was the series finale and somehow I had missed that news. Very interesting way to end a season. I look forward to seeing what they come up with next.

Announced today that this upcoming shortened season will be its last. 13 episodes were ordered and they'll be aired as a mid-season replacement. Most likely for one of the shows that inevitably bomb on NBC.
I wouldnt have minded season 6 being the last. It ended really well. Hopefully knowing its their final season doesn't turn the final episodes into a long slow sappy goodbye.
