Another word for finally
As though a matter were settled
conclusively, decisively, with finality, with conviction, in a final manner, certainly, irrevocably, definitely, beyond recall, past regret, permanently, for all time, determinately, enduringly, assuredly, once and for all, for good, beyond the shadow of a doubt, in fine.
After a long period
at last, in the end, at the end, at length, eventually, ultimately, subsequently, in conclusion, lastly, after all, after a time, after a while, as a sequel, despite delay, at long last, at the final point, at the last moment, tardily, belatedly, when all is said and done, in the long run, late in the day*, as the world goes*, as things go*, at the eleventh hour*, in the crunch*, in spite of all, as it may be.
