Quite simply a superb way to end it, they went out as they came in, bad ass till the end...the homage to Easy Rider was the icing on the cake, the cherry on the top...
Of course I'm going to kill you..leave him guessing and looking over his shoulder ...just brilliant..R.I.P. Strike Back....

Loved it. Sorry to see it go. I'm happy with the way it ended.

Kind of amusing that they are heading to Vegas, be funnier if Scott said afterwards they would be going to NYC.

The were riding on U.S. Route 97. Probably entered from Canada at Osoyoos. For Stonebridge it's two junctions and a straight shot to Las Vegas and a name change. Scott and son will probably catch a flight to the East Coast. Good job guys!

I guess I am having a senior moment but could you guys clarify the motivations! Other than going rogue why was there orders from on high to take out all 3 of them?
So both of them manage to escape but Scott played out like he was killed and Stonebridge is OK, Was there something about Scott that required him to fake his death?

BTW, the ending also reminded me of the way another show ended:
Spoiler!

You don't look for a dead man.

I assume the deal was with North Korea to hush everything up. All actors dead and it never happened.

Just a late farewell to one show I will honestly miss .. over our short time together, I really grew to enjoy .. it's funny how something can grow on you .. the final scene may have been as perfect an ending as any show ever had ..

Couldn't agree more! Strike Back did great stuff with over the top silliness and good humor. I'll miss it too. I've been watching the boys in their new series, The Player and Blindspot. As much as I liked Winchester and Stapleton in this show, both are trapped in new series that are mediocre at best.

It's funny you say that, since I feel the same way about The Player and Blindspot .. I also felt it somewhat odd that they both ended up on the same network .. I gave up on The Player since I just had to cull the herd so to speak, and Blindspot is just not doing much for me either, so it may go out of the rotation soon unless something compelling happens ..

I'm still watching both The Player and Blindspot but their grasp on my attention is tenuous.

Great show...eps 7,8,9 and 10 of S1 with the boys were high water marks...it never got better and slightly worse. They ended at the right time. Regrets...Stonebridge needed to get laid after wifey croaked. Rhona should have had at least 3 full frontals in the season and a half she was there.

I don't lurk as much as I used to and I NEVER listen. Comes from being old and cynical.

Now that I've dropped The Player I wish Winchester had managed to stay on with Section 20. Or even joined up with the folks in Crossing Lines.

Picked up the Blue Ray yesterday. Sorta sad to see the caption "Final Season" but it went out on a high note. It got a very nice review on Blu-ray.com.
