I liked the episode. After knowing that the series is canceled, I'm not sure I can give a fair review anymore. Obviously this episode had to of been produced a while before we got the cancellation announcement, but I assume tptb get the announcements a lot sooner. As such, it certainly felt like things were being amped up for a premature conclusion. When I started watching the show, I never perceived that the ultimate episode of the season would center around the flashforward time. In retrospect it seems fairly obvious that it should... but whatever.
I was kind of uneasy about the decisions and actions many of the character were taking. They seemed a bit chaotic and reactionary. Given the circumstances, I guess it could be expected, but you'd think they would be a little wiser by now.
Overall, I enjoyed it, and I'm stoked for next week (but also sad). Glad to FINALLY see Olivia act in a somewhat sane manner.
Could of done without the cheesy music in the end sequence (I thought we were past that people!).
The scene between Charlie and Mark was touching, but felt a bit too saccharine and overdone.
Mark letting Hellinger push his buttons so easily, and then going off the deep end with drinking pissed me off, as well as Dem being so naive as to think Zoe would be fine with the knowledge that he slept with and impregnated Janis. I did like the Jericho story finally being tied in to the main GBO conspiracy (I guess they outsourced some work to Jericho?), and the sad twist that Tracy dies in front of Aaron (although I still can't figure out what was wrong with her?).

By inconsistencies do you mean everyone not being where they are "supposed" to be?
