I generally agree, especially about the bad placement.
The good news is that there is at least some logic to it, by which I mean it
ultimately sets the stage for the following finale, although the two
episodes are completely unrelated for the most part.
I'd have preferred the far-better S05E20 to be a two-part cliffhanger.
There were enough good ideas in the finale for a two-hour swan-song.
Although I rate S05E19 about like you do, I have to concede it was stylish,
different, innovative and just plain pretty to look at. But it was so
different as to be a jarring bump in the general continuity of the show.
