Crane, Poole & Schmidt will plead its case one last time.  After five seasons, David E. Kelley's offbeat legal drama Boston Legal is calling it a night with a two-hour finale called "Made in China" and "Last Call," which finds the infamous law firm in dire financial straits.  There's no telling how the show will come to an end, but the series won't be the same if Alan and Denny don't get to share one last cigar smoke on the balcony.

To find out what's in store for Boston Legal's two-hour farewell, read on.

The series ender of Boson Legal finds the lawyers of Crane Poole & Schmidt as they face the possibility of finding a buyer for the firm when the company gets caught in severe financial trouble. But Alan (James Spader) has other concerns on his mind.  More challenges arise as Alan struggles to convince the Supreme Court to let Denny (William Shatner) have access to a non-FDA approved drug that could defer his rapidly progressing Alzheimer's.

Meanwhile, Shirley Schmidt (Candice Bergen) and Carl Sack (John Larroquette) plan their big day as Denny poses an important question to Alan.

Rene Auberjonois joins the cast one last time as he plays the role of Paul Lewiston.

Witness Alan and Denny's platonic romance, which has anchored the idiosyncratic drama, come to an end tonight at 9pm on ABC.

Boston Legal's conclusion marks the first time in more than 20 years a Kelley show won't be on the broadcast slate, a thread stretching from L.A. Law through Picket Fences, Ally McBeal, Boston Public, and The Practice, among others.  Nevertheless, he has two series in the works, including Legally Mad, a one-hour NBC legal comedy pilot about a father and daughter in a "cauldron of eccentrics" that has tones of Boston Legal and Ally McBeal.
