Lots of nice touches and a big question as to who did what when.

J.J. cut a deal with the Investors as well so wonder what will come of that.

Also Brock switching to E-Cigs.

Venture Brothers- Consistently THE BEST. There was just one FUCK YES moment after another, from the revelation of the Revenge Society's HQ right up to the song in the epilogue.

Gotta wonder what the new status quo is going to mean for the secondary characters- the Triad, Dermott, etc.

I could not tell that Phineas Phage was not Bill Hader. I guess Hader's too big now. Luckily, tho, Colbert talked some sense into his agent or something, because he was back.

Whole load of plot happened there, makes me wonder how the new status quo will go...

And it was nice to see Amber Gold and Brock might have hooked up, considering a creeper her boyfriend is (the one who apparently feels up female prisoners when they're handcuffed with a bag on their head).

And it turns out that there was an online epilogue, which answers at least some of my questions at least.

Probably. This show does have a track record of bringing back characters we assumed were dead though.

I wonder if we'll see the moppets again.

I'm 50/50 on it. There are quite a few ways he could have survived like that just happening to be another eagle or that he's durable enough to have survived it (he survived Limb's death touch after all).

Its really unlikely this is the first time they've hooked up.

Remember the episode "Bot Seeks Bot" with the OSI guys in the van where the sniper is saying he's with Amber, but then Shoreleave shoots back something like "Does Amber know that?" and when the sniper is all what the heck does that mean Brock gets really nervous and awkwardly ends the conversation.

Ah, she did describe how she feels lonely sometimes (again, can't blame her her actual bf's a psycho). I don't know, I think that they're a better couple than Brock and Molotov might have made.

Molotov is a bad person while Amber is indeed a heroic qt.
Brock should definitely man up and get over his obsession on the russkie after she fully admitted her true nature and embraced other opportunities.

I hope he can replace that metal plate with something a bit more flexible.
And better designed.

Betting Hank ends up NTRing him in S6. Turn about is fair play.

I think that Season 3 has been the best season so far.

It feels very much like the show at its peak. With all the world and character building done to such a degree that we knew where we were and who lived there, the season had a sturdy foundation to tell stories on. The result is a sequence of episodes operating on optimum, each one smartly utilizing the promise of what the previous seasons laid out:

You had some of the best, Rusty is a bastard super scientist episodes (The Doctor is Sin, The Buddy System)
Stripped of his right to arch, you had some of the best of Monarch's attempts to mess with Rusty anyway (Home is Where the Hate Is, Tears of a Sea Cow)
And with the mythos of the show having been proven to extend beyond the compound, we had some great chapters that further explored that (ORB, Now Museum Now You Don't)

Yes, other seasons do have equally as good, if not better, examples of the above, but it was the way in which all these different story beats coexisted in a single season without overpowering one another is what makes me so fond of it. It was comfortable, even, and solid. A perfect swan song to the Rusty, Brocke, HELPer, Hank, and Dean dynamic. The best the team has been before the finale flips the table.

Plus, it had the best DVD/Blu-Ray packaging.

Season 4 rides the shockwave of the Season 3 finale. Everything comes at a breakneck pace, liberally referencing a great deal of story elements from past seasons as it tries to bring things to an exciting new place. Unfortunately, it seems to have a hard time determining what that place is. Perfectly exemplified in how Gathers seemed to be with Molotov's team, but was immediately revealed to be of SPHINX in the following episode. While s3 and s2 would provide a bit of insight as to why things were happening for new viewers, the continuity-heavy s4 greatly relied on pre-existing knowledge for most of it to have meaning.

Despite the TV specials that hop around the show's chronology that nonetheless have some major game changers in them, Season 5 is a bit more accessible. Each episode has enough narrative meat and exposition to live and die by its own merits.

That is a fair and cogent assessment.
As much as the show attempted to prevent from becoming stale by creating a new status quo, Hatred just never fit half as well as Brock did, and really, as a bodyguard, was far less charming than as an arch.

Season 5 did a much much better job, as you said (in no small part thanks to the specials it had to help it), and I'd put it up there with s1 and s2, but you're very right in stating that s4 felt like the nadir of the series, especially after such a strong s3.
