After watching the happenings in this episode, it seems obvious that the finale was written before any decision was forthcoming about the Connor and Ava departures. I wonder how much filming, if any, was done after the finale went to production in order to resolve the issues between them and the suspicious death of the father. In the past, viewers were told that the issues between the father and Connor came about over the father resentment that his son did not follow him in the family business. Lately, the writers tell us that Connor hated his father growing up because of his infidelity and the resulting emotional harm caused his mother. Yet, Connor easily believes the worst about Ava ever since the truth comes out about the enhanced operating room funding. The whole relationship story between them has become cringe worthy, but Ava was right that Coonor is a real prick just like the arrogant father.
