If they wanted to go with both realities being fake, thus the entire series being a completely irrelevant, why couldn't he have been in a coma since the accident and woken up in the last few seconds of the show, to both his wife and son being alive. There, I just came up with a (marginally) better ending in about 10 seconds!
That tallies with the speculation, if none of it happened what was the point of the series?, thus the creation of a third reality where both his son and wife are alive. Ergo he must as you say be dead, dieing or in a coma in reality.

If it was all a dream then the entire 13 episodes were for nothing.

I thought the ending was a rush job to attempt to tie up loose ends after the show got cancelled but it appears they always intended it to end this way?
Yikes!!

TVLINE | Obviously there has been much speculation about what the heck we watched last night. Will you go so far as to say that it was not all a dream? That there was a car accident?
I’ve seen some really interesting [theories], and I wouldn’t say that anyone is wrong — except the people who are calling it a Dallas or a Newhart, any variation on “…and then he woke up.” That is absolutely not what we intended. If you watch the last few minutes again, I’m not sure what the argument for that [interpretation] even is. I suppose there’s the überpossibility that he’s in a coma and now having a third dream in the coma, but in no way should it be interpreted as, “He woke up and his family was fine. He’d just been having two nightmares.”

so the green world was real the one with female shrink, *throws hand up* so so what?

asking for an emmy for isaacs shows how this show was over dependent on him

another show where the creator one minute says he has the whole planned out the next no plan.

I can't believe people who thought it was a poor ending. To me it was obvious that this was a third universe where he lived with bot Rex and Hannah.

It's laid out that you can take from the ending what you want, much akin to Inception. I guess some people just like to think they are too smart for the show. I have to say I really enjoyed from start to finish.

They upped the ante in the last few episodes and Issacs (Hello, Jason) upped his game as well. I can't think of anything too negative to say, or even minor negativities.
