Episode Airs Weekend of May 22nd in National Syndication
Richard (CRAIG HORNER), separated from his companions, continues in his quest to defeat the Keeper once and for all. With the Stone of Tears in hand, he reaches the Pillars of Creation in an attempt to seal the many rifts opening to the Underworld, but soon comes face to face with his greatest enemy. Meanwhile, Kahlan (BRIDGET REGAN) falls under the control of the omnipotent Sister Nicci, who sends the Mother Confessor on a mission of destruction.
The riveting second season finale airs the weekend of May 22nd.
"Legend of the Seeker" airs Saturdays and Sundays in national syndication (www.LegendoftheSeeker.com for times and channels)

"There was a little feeling (that the end was near)," Horner told TVStar.com earlier this week during an exclusive interview. "We kind of found out towards the end of the second season that certain of our investors wouldn't be around for a third time. That created a little bit of a stir amongst us and from that moment on I tried to spend the last two months, just in case, going around to every place we went to soaking up that scenery and everything about it, every person, every tree, every plant, animal, everything about Auckland. I was like, 'If this is true, if it doesn't go, then I'm really going to miss this place, because I really love it.' So there was a bit of that, and I'm glad I soaked it up while I was there."
Horner and company had already wrapped "Tears" when word reached him in his hometown of Brisbane, Australia -- as he was walking to buy a cup of coffee -- that Legend of the Seeker would not return. Horner was saddened, of course, and disappointed, not to mention suddenly jobless. But the first thought that struck him upon hearing the news was there'd be no chance to say a proper farewell to his co-stars and crew. The season-two wrap party had been held already, and though many in attendance thought it might be the last time they were all together, thinking that's possible and realizing that it's now a reality are two vastly different things. Horner puts it quite succinctly when he noted, "There was no 'Goodbye, Seeker.'"
Once it became evident that Tribune Station Group would not support a third season, executives at the show's production company did their best to shop Legend of the Seeker to other venues, obviously to no avail. "All the heads went over to Syfy and tried to pitch it to them," Horner said. "Man, I wish they'd told me. I would have gone over there. I would have charmed them. I would have charmed the pants off of them. I'd have gone, 'Come on, guys, how can you not let this show again?' I would've shown them all the Internet comments. I would've gone, 'Come on, these people want to see this show again.' I would've done it, but they didn't tell me. But they really tried. They went over. They pulled out all the facts. They pulled out a lot of Internet results. Unfortunately, Internet results don't speak to money heads of studios. They might go great, 'Great, it's got a lot of viewers, but season three, they'll just download again.' So I think they really tried. I can't say they didn't. I know there were others, but I know they had a nice big meeting with Syfy and Syfy came very, very close."
Meanwhile, just the threat of cancellation sent the Legend of the Seeker fan base into overdrive in an effort to save their beloved series. They lobbied ABC Studios and the Walt Disney Company and Syfy. They raised funds and took out an expensive ad in a Hollywood trade paper. "That was great," Horner said warmly. "I was so very pleased. It was so nice, so sweet. I was all for it. People were coming up with great ideas, like Syfy. They were mentioning the BBC, saying they could run it in between Robin Hood and Doctor Who. That would be perfect. How awesome would that be? But I don't know. If it doesn't go again, it doesn't go again, but at least we know we had a great little community and that we had Legend of the Seeker out there for a while."
Legend of the Seeker will live on in Terry Goodkind's books. And surely Horner and his co-stars, including Bridget Regan, Bruce Spence, and Tabrett Bethell, will make the rounds on the still-thriving sci-fi/fantasy convention circuit. But, in the meantime, there's something about Horner's word choice -- "If it doesn't go again..." -- that seems to leave a glimmer of hope that maybe, perhaps the show isn't dead, dead, dead. And the promos for "Tears" only refer to it as a season finale, not a series finale. So, is there no chance? Should the fans stop trying? "I don't know," Horner replies. "I really can't say that. My mom thinks it's going to go again. She sent me a message this morning saying, 'Big announcement.' She's a little bit of a clairvoyant. She likes to think it will (be back), but who knows?"
(Writer's Note: That's the breaking news from Horner. Be on the lookout next week as TVStar runs our two-part interview with Horner -- with the questions provided by you, our readers.)

TVGuide.com: What can you tell us about the upcoming series finale?
Bridget Regan: The finale was by far the most full-on exhausting episode out of all 44 I've done. It was absolutely incredible. I was back on the horse quite a bit doing stunts that I have never done. It's where everything comes together, or comes to an end really, and it was so high-energy. For Kahlan it's an absolute roller coaster and I will say I was wearing a lot of red contact lenses — the fans know what that's about.
TVGuide.com: Will it tie things up?
Regan: At the end of Season 1 we all thought after we read the scripts it felt like we were done. Everything was wrapped up and it was completed, but I think it's something that mirrored the books in that each book as a series is kind of wrapped up, but then there's always what would happen next? It does wrap up in a way and it's really culminating in the end of the world and us winning or losing.
TVGuide.com: Have you seen the fan effort for a Seeker Season 3?
Regan: The people that know the show absolutely love it. ... I'm on Twitter and I don't get to read everything people write, but you see people write "Save our Seeker, Save our Seeker" and people have told me about the efforts and honestly I'm with them and I'm behind them. I think the show has only gotten better and better, but we didn't have the best airtimes. What's difficult with syndication is it's hard for people to find it. In San Diego it's on at Sundays at 3 or something like that and I'm not usually home on Sundays at 3.
TVGuide.com: If there were a Season 3, what would you like to see for Kahlan?
Regan: I would've wanted her to have good times. They're always fighting like it's the end of the world. Whenever I get a moment to laugh or smile it's the best. But she's always being kidnapped and fighting people and narrowly escaping death, so it would've been nice for her to be with Richard and start a family and do all those things she dreamed of. I like happy Kahlan.
