Back at the day I was really scared the show was a goner, lol. I wasn't paying attention to the renewal status of shows yet, so I was really in the dark. That cliffhanger was so huge, lol. And for a big while I really thought it would be ending of the show. I am so super glad, that after all these insecure years, we got 9 seasons out of it. The show that just wouldn't die, no matter what time-slot or which shows aired in the same time-slot.
