Yes. That is why it felt like a true end in the Telltale series, if not a finale for all the game series as a whole, including Hit the Road.
Like I said way before in my review of Season 3 in the form of a forum post, I said I'd be satisfied if The Devil's Playhouse is the end. It wraps everything up so well, has that form of a "reset ending" that surprisingly doesn't feel like betraying you for your loyalty as a fan but instead sets the tone for the whole events that have happened up until that point in true Sam and Max fashion, and it's simply very very good. I feel like Season 3 finale rewarded my long dedication and bonding to the entire franchise.
It doesn't mean I wouldn't be happy for a Season 4, I mean I would most certainly be. Just that I think everyone should be aware you people have set a bar so high that will take quite a time in development to create something that will carry it even much higher -if you guys ever want to carry the joy & burden to do it again. In any case, I'm good.
