season finale[edit]

Sum of parts, not idiomatic, completely compositional. --Connel MacKenzie 11:14, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Keep - This term is not used in the UK. --EncycloPetey 15:51, 13 October 2007 (UTC)
Delete If you know what sense of season is being discussed, the term seems unambiguosly SoP. DCDuring 01:31, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Keep as non-compositional (at least dubiously compositional). Finale, as currently defined, does not mean "final episode" or "final show"; rather, it means the dramatic end of a performance. Thus as SOP "season finale" ought to refer to the end of the season, which could be just part of the final episode or could be a story-line spread over multiple episodes. But as actually used, this term has a much more precise meaning. -- Visviva 06:05, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
Is that meaning actually in the definition that we have? The definition just looks like a discussion of who has the most to gain from combining the words in the absolutely to-be-expected way. DCDuring 11:30, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
It's defined as "final episode of a season." Since finale is not currently defined as "final episode," this does not appear to be sum of parts. -- Visviva 13:32, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
Good point, Visviva 13:32, 17 October 2007 (UTC). Keep (and "series finale").msh210 17:54, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Keep, because you have to know which of the many senses of season is being dicussed for this to make sense. Cheers! bd2412 T 20:32, 21 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Keep. I had no idea what it meant until I looked it up. I thought it was sports related.--Dmol 17:53, 22 October 2007 (UTC)
