More, i liked the fact that he was REALLY dead (or at least we thought it); i had no doubt Cameron survived the explosion of the jeep at the end of season 1 for example. Still, the writers managed to surprise us with the twist at the end of season 2 finale when we saw Derek and Allison. Great writing, great finale, even if it was frustrating.
Yeah, I liked that too that he was really dead. His resurrection for the finale didn't bother me too much. I considered that as a great moving farewell with all the characters who mattered (and wasn't impossible for them to be there) appearing for the last time. Very well done finale considering the circumstances.
