Question: After seeing J.J. Abrams's answer to the question about his lack of involvement in Alias (and Lost) last week, I can't help but wonder if he totally let the cat out of the bag that this is the last season for Alias. He said "series finale" not "season finale." Should we read into that?

Answer: Probably not. He was merely answering my question, which was predicated on the possibility that this might be Alias' final season. But let's face it, the writing is pretty much on the wall.
