* AssPull: In "Deliver Us From Evil," the Evil Leapers came closer to undoing Sam's hard work than just about anyone else. And towards the end, Alia had almost completely [[spoiler: destroyed the La Motta family, with Raymond having an affair with a co-worker, Jimmy being falsely accused of rape, and almost no hopes of Sam being able to save the day]]. Despite all of that, however, Sam manages to [[spoiler: give Alia a speech on duality and the two of them being counterparts and somehow manages to save the day and undo all the damage the the Evil Leapers have caused with some kind of time warp]]. Considering how ''Quantum Leap'' has never relied upon Deux ex Machina endings in the past and the fact that there was absolutely no realistic way for Sam to reverse all the damage Alia had done, Sam giving a rambling incoherent speech on duality to Alia hardly seems like a believable way to resolve everything and give the La Mottas their happy ending back.

* {{Fanon}}: Given that the show ended without tying up certain loose ends, the show has steadily built some fanon over the years, some of which has made its way onto the ''Quantum Leap'' Website/{{Wikia}} for whatever reason (mostly because there is very little canon info available).

* JerkassWoobie: Alia. We don't know much about her life prior to quantum leaping, but she's a particularly duplicitous piece of work in "Deliver Us from Evil." That said, as the Evil Leaper episodes progress, it becomes clear that her only "friend" is a sociopathic hologram, that she's been conditioned to think that [[ForcedIntoEvil evil acts are her eventual ticket home]], and that any failure on her part will be met with torture and/or termination. By the time of her HeelFaceTurn, she's shucked off the "jerkass" part and has become a straight-up {{Woobie}}.

Added DiffLines:

* FanficFuel:
** Sam's leaps post-finale, and Al's role in them now that he's [[spoiler:married to Beth]].
** Alia's life as a leaper after [[spoiler:escaping Lothos at the end of "Revenge,"]] and whether or not she encounters Sam (or Zoey) again.
** The premise behind the proposed "Bold Leap Forward" spinoff, which would have seen Sammie Jo Fuller becoming a leaper to find Sam.
** Any information behind the evil leaping project, including who they were and ''why'' they were evil.
* {{Fanon}}: Given that the show ended without tying up certain loose ends, the show has steadily built some fanon over the years, some of which has made its way onto the ''Quantum Leap'' Website/{{Wikia}} for whatever reason (mostly because there is very little canon info available).
** Gushie's real name was never revealed on the show, but a fanfic named him "Dr. Irving Gushman" and the fandom adopted it.
** There's a lot of fanon about the evil leaping project.
*** For instance, there's a "picture" of Lothos circulating the Internet that is actually a picture of Ziggy from "The Leap Back," except tinted red. Lothos was never actually seen on the show, but given that he's Ziggy's EvilCounterpart, he should look ''something'' like her, right?
*** There's also a widely accepted theory (again, from [[http://www.quantumleap-alsplace.com/quantumretribution/main.html a fanfic series]]) that Lothos is actually a mad scientist in the British Isles who did some BrainUploading into a supercomputer.
** In fact, a lot of fanon that is (incorrectly) claimed as canon comes from the more fanfic-y elements of the [[http://www.quantumleap-alsplace.com/mainpage.html "Al's Place" fansite]], which was the ''only'' fansite for ''Quantum Leap'' for several years.
