They were really speeding through the events this time, making me think again that they were going to end it. But instead, they just looped the scene where Kyon tries to stop Haruhi three or five times. And then had a lengthy shot of a clock ticking at the end to use up the remaining time.
I actually burst out laughing at that. Very clever, guys. OTL
(This was loop #15521, btw.)
