I wouldn't go that far - the chase has been what, a hundred posts or so? At a tabletop it would probably be done and dusted in 15 minutes.
I think the issue is that maintaining the tension levels in a chase over PbP is a tough ask. When you spread those hundred posts over several months, it gets more difficult still.

Let me add, a big chunk of this is my fault for taking a couple of long absences. When the DM disappears for a month, it does somewhat kill the momentum. My apologies.
You're well past the halfway point. Brother D., if you could post your preference on the main thread, let's resolve this and move on to the (maybe) final scene.
