    SPOILER: Donald P. Bellisario and Scott Bakula have both expressed their ire with the NBC network over the series finale. Originally, Bellisario was asked to write an episode that could function either as a season finale cliffhanger, or as an end to the series. When Bellisario complied, the cast and crew were assured of the series renewal. In the eleventh hour, NBC decided to cancel the series after all, and reedited the ending with title cards revealing the fate of Sam and Al. This was one of at least four endings, at least two of which were filmed. If the series was to end, Bellisario originally planned to have Al and Beth as an old married couple discussing how they would locate Sam who had leaped again. Had the series continued, Bellisario planned to have Sam leap into a space station in the distant future, and Al becoming a leaper himself to rescue Sam.
