Along the way, Grace and her colleagues, who by now have developed an appealingly casual but caring camaraderie, deal with various quotidian police matters, with stand-alone stories involving the specter of domestic terrorism (an especially touchy subject in OKC, still reeling from the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, in which Grace's own sister was killed), an AA-like program for alcoholics, Hasidic Jews and kosher beef, Muslim attitudes toward homosexuality, ranchers battling over water, and so on. But it's Grace's personal journey that predominates. Over the course of the season, she tries to help a troubled young woman who also has a relationship with Earl, thinking this might be what God has in store for her; she also confronts a sinister stranger named Hut Flanders (Gordon MacDonald, Hunter's real-life boyfriend), who, like Earl, is not of this world. Of course, Grace isn't someone who channels her emotions very positively. And by the final few episodes, she's deep into a downward spiral, self-inflicted and otherwise, that makes her earlier self look tame: she's involved in a fatal car accident; her house is burned down; she smokes crack, turns tricks, and rejects friends and loved ones alike. It's hard to believe that all this turmoil is part of "great things," but if there's one thing series creator Nancy Miller has emphasized throughout Saving Grace's run, it's that God works in mysterious ways. --Sam Graham

|Are Season 3 and the Final Season the same thing?||
K. D. Whittle is correct. The 3rd season was split in half and shown in summer and winter with a break inbetween. But season 3 is one season - the final season. The network wanted a 4th season, but Fox declined because they felt they didn't get enough money out of it.
