Scoop: The Cape Finale Goes Online at Midnight

The Cape will unfurl one final time tonight at midnight EST, when NBC’s freshman action-drama debuts its season finale online at NBC.com.

As previously reported by TVLine, the season finale was to air as part of a double-header on February 28. NBC however pulled the second hour, in part to save Chuck from an unnecessary week of hiatus.

But with Chuck back and The Event having resumed its own freshman run, The Cape‘s capper will not be broadcast but stream online.

The network’s official description of the finale, titled “End Game,” follows:

THE CAPE AND VINCE FARRADAY’S WORLDS COLLIDE AND HARD TRUTHS ARE REVEALED — Police Chief Marty Voyt (Dorian Missick) lands behind bars, in the hands of ARK Corporation, fearing he may receive the same fate as Vince (David Lyons). Attempting to learn more about Vince’s disappearance, Dana (Jennifer Ferrin) takes on Marty’s case, and the impervious ARK Corporation , only to discover secrets of betrayal. The Cape’s double identity becomes blurred when Max (Keith David) and the carnival of crime attempt to protect Dana, Marty and his family.

Will you be firing up the cable modem tonight/this weekend to see how The Cape’s crusade concludes?
