I'm not a huge fan of El Puerco, but I am a big fan of Jessica getting back at Chester, and I have to agree that El Puerco was a lot better for Jessica than Chester ever was. Those two getting married would have been good, I would have enjoyed it, especially if Chester was there at the wedding and we could see him get mad. The baby thing, I don't know. Maybe. It just seems like all the babies born on that show had to have something bizarre with them, or they didn't even get mentioned. Corrine's baby was possessed, and then it was barely mentioned after that. Mary's baby might have been an alien. Then Jodie's baby had a story line when she was kidnapped. I'm not quite sure what they would have done with Jessica's baby if they would've had one.

I liked Soap but Jessica could be a little dippy at times, borderline annoying. Remember when she was on trial for killing Peter? I mean I understand that the character has to be a little dippy but how hard is it to take the fact that your on trial for killing somebody??

As for the cliffhanger, I thought it was ok. I thought Soap was missing something by the time the show ended. I dont know what but I dont think it was as funny as it was in the beginning. I would like to know what happen with the cliffhangers though. I dont think Billy, Dutch or Eunice were in the final episode. Even if Soap came back for another season, how do you do a show w/o one of your major players, like Jessica, if shes dead?

I always thought that part of her character wanted to believe that everything was always right in the world in the beginning of the show. Remember when she didn't believe that Chester had been cheating on her? And remember how bad she felt about cheating with Peter? She was also in denial of the fact that Corrine was sleeping around and Eunice was having an affair. It was more or less like she just wanted to block all of that out, and naturally, when you do that for everything else, she wanted to ignore everything that was going on with her murder trial. I even remember one episode where Mary told her that she can't just always ignore the bad and notice the good, that she had to deal with both.

I just finished watching season 4 last week and every time I see the final episode it makes me so mad to know that we'll never know what happened. I like to imagine that Jessica was saved by El, Juan Juan, Billy, Dutch, Saunders, and even Benson. As for the rest of the characters left in danger who knows.

I have a couple of possible theories on what might have happened in a season five resolution:

Jessica survives the shooting as family members were able to get to South America and place blanks in the shotguns.

As he is about to shoot Danny and Annie after finding them in bed, Chester suddenly blanks out again (as he did in season two) and disappears again.

Burt is saved from the ambush by the aliens (returning from season three) who were disguised as one of the criminals. They soon judge Burt an unfit parent to Scotty (who is revealed to be fathered by the alien) and ask that he be given up to them.

Rehashes from past seasons? Perhaps, but just theories nonetheless

Nice theories Steevo. I'd like to expand on that and add that Burt has to prove he is a good father to scotty and realizes that he loves his family and he ends up not running for office. Any ideas on how to resolve Jody's predicament?

Here are two possible resolutions:

1) Carol's Mom visits Jodie to check on Wendy, when she learns that he's stuck believing that he's Julius Kassendorf. She suggests that it would be better if she took care of Wendy until he's back to normal. As they get ready to leave, Wendy begins crying. Jodie holds her one last time and then she says her first word: Da-da. This simple act brings Jodie back.

2) Once Burt has squared things away with the aliens, they zap Jodie back to normal as a favor to Burt.
