NEW YORK (CBS) After three seasons “Saving Grace” aired its series finale on Monday night with two back-to-back episodes. The gritty TNT series, starring Oscar-winning actress Holly Hunter as Grace Hanadarko, portrayed a flawed Oklahoma cop with a dark side and a last-chance angel named Earl, played by Leon Rippy. Pictures: Holly Hunter If you came into the final episode thinking it would be a happy, uneventful send-off, think again. Officer Grace didn’t have the happy ending we had hoped for. Her journey was full circle as the series culiminated, with her finally getting the chance to rid the town of one more evil figure, even if it meant losing her life. Grace, for better or worse, dies in the final episode. Did evil win, then? Not so likely. Grace took the final step and her life’s calling in this world was fulfilled. This was her ultimate battle. She may have died trying to prevent another major terrorist plot or a mass-killing of many people, but maybe her rationale is that if she takes her life ,she can save the lives of many other people. So in the end, the show’s title lived up to the final showdown. Grace, although taking her own life, did in fact become the “Saving Grace” for the people around her. And that’s a pretty divine way to go out.
