golfingdocp, Bushi101, sojourner, reality adictt:
There are many loose ends in season 1, and the bike ride is one of them. I believe it was reality adictt who suggested that season 2 cover season 1 from Grace's viewpoint. Some scenes would be interesting to expand upon, such as the bike scene and how Simon seduced Grace, or Grace seduced Simon. I agree with golfingdocp that Grace was already primed to consider doing something to change her life when Simon popped up. She suddenly meets a physically attractive man who makes her feel like a desirable women, and clearly wants to engage her in a mating dance, even though she told him she was married. The obvious sexual interest that Simon had in Grace must have been a pleasant shock to her, and I'm sure she tingled with sexual desire for Simon. I think the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back, which led Grace the next day to seriously think about Simon as a sexual partner, was when Neil ignored her plea for a date and treated her like a bad, stupid little girl.
Simon set the hook by giving Grace his address via cell phone during the melee at the club. I remember that Linda had to drive by Jacob's house to see where he lived. Similarly, I think Grace had to see if she would have the same tingle when she saw Simon again. She didn't push Simon's bell and was leaving when Simon drove up. Seeing him again did her in; she had to find out how far she wanted to go with him. This new adventure was too strong to ignore. I originally suggested that Simon may have taken Grace for a ride, etc., but I believe Simon is way too sophisticated to make out in a car, especially a Porsche. We can all invent our fantasy seduction scenes with Simon and Grace, but my guess is that Simon simply invited her up to his apartment for a coffee and visit and Grace didn't hesitate to accept. Once she was in his apartment, which is quite private and presentable, the actual seduction was relatively simple for Simon (or Grace). The exact steps in their hooking up I leave to your imaginations.
There is something else that I have wondered about. Did Grace and Simon go out at all? I find it hard to believe that Grace would just want to have sex with Simon, and not go out, secretly. I don't think sex alone would satisfy her loneliness. Her boredom, yes, but not her gregarious feelings.
Another thing: Simon was on a date when he and Grace first realized the attraction to each other. Isn't it odd that Simon was dating someone after a hard day's work? He didn't even like her since he dumped her after taking one look at Grace.
Finally, everyone, I found an interesting site, bipolar-lives.com, that says bipolar cheating is one of the most typical bipolar symptoms of all. Symptomatic hypersexuality would explain Linda's sexual adventures. Without medical treatment, she will probably have more bouts of infidelity. Her husband has a long, sad journey ahead in caring for her. I don't believe Grace has any such illness.

mixed feelings about the finale...I mean, I enjoyed the ultimate con...but it felt a little too bitter...Neal without Mozzie...sounds weird, right?

Gos awful finale that's being blindly accepted by emotional fans. What was the point of the ENTIRE show if Neal STILL stole millions and will probably continue to pull art heists in Paris? And why is Peter okay with that?

He stole the money because he knew Keller would take it thus giving the FBI a reason to lock him up and not honor his deal (and probably so Mozzie could have a little of it for when Neal--who practically supports him--was gone), and he is getting paid a ton to work security for The Luvre surrounded by the art he loves, so who knows, maybe he won't feel the need to fall back into cons.

@ Netta

Is he working security though? If that's the case then okay, I can accept that much. Still a very sloppy conclusion to a favorite show of mine, but I guess I'll live.

I dearly hope so. He also could be freelancing, a la Leverage.

Belenko is still out there and could come back down the line(if they come back)..........Annie saved his life so he really has no reason to go after her. Now Auggie and Deckert is a different story, however, since Auggie is planning on traveling the world.....it's not going to be easy for Belenko to track him down............but I think Belenko will want to get the Russians somehow for turning on him....... The season finale did leave some unanswered questions--I just wish we already knew if it was coming back............ I didn't necessarily like that Auggie supposedly is leaving the agency............. I'm not yet convinced that Annie wants to get married. Did you all catch her saying GOT IT after the screen went to black....................

They should send Nigella home next season. She should join Masterchef... as a contestant!

I guess Neal really did think he'd never really be free of the FBI and that's why he pulled the ultimate con..........Just read an article where all the major players have plenty of projects coming up............

@ Terrie

He may have been 'free' but the Panthers would have been after him and everyone he loves, so he still would have been trapped.

While that probably did play a part in Neal's decision making process I still think he thought he'd never be free of the FBI.............

This was a really good finale and in keeping with the "geist" of the show. I remember some theories that Neil would come to a branch or building and have to decide whether to go with Mozzie or Peter. I am glad he went with himself at long last. This was very satisfying ! It was very fitting that both Peter and Mozzie knew the truth about the final con!
