Its because the episode was shot before they were canceled. They went back and re-shot part of the finale to wrap it up. When I was watching it, there was like 10 minutes left(with commericals) and I was like how are they going to wrap this up. Then bam, it wraps up very abruptly.
I can see why they only re-shot part of it. They didn't get paid to re-shoot. They did it to give closure to the show. They gave it closure, albeit very abruptly.
The show should have been a mini-series.
