That WASNT the finale last season.. The season was cut short and they wanted to get that episode in that season because they didn't have any other episode to closeout with. I read Braff's myspace blog or whatever and he has a whole written thing about it. The fairy tale episode was not, I repeat was not meant to be a season finale of any way.
********Also the reason it seemed so ''out of order'' was because it was out of order
That being said, tonight was a great return. However, Scrubs is going to have a tough time competing with American Idol and Biggest Loser sandwiching it in on the other two big stations
