The United States of Tara (spoilers for the season finale)

We watched the season finale of The United States of Tara the other night and I'm kind of torn about it. I felt like it neither resolved anything, nor presented any serious cliffhangers. I suppose it was an attempt to pull the rug out from under viewers accustomed to television psychology. It was like "Ha! Real psychiatric problems aren't solved by one climactic revelation! They require years of hard work and patience on everybody's part!" That's all well and good, but it made for kind of a limp season finale. Of course my reading hinges on the idea that the final shot showing all the alters at once for the first time was not an indication of something having changed in Tara's mind.
