To answer the original question as to when the fall stops, I would say each bar is a fall. Use gravity to take you through each bar.

does not the fall end at the end of three? but there should be a smooth transition to create ebb and flow.

I think the pendulum (or swing set) is a perfect example of a consecutive "falls" linking together via smooth transitions.  As to whether it happens to "three", that's illusive, because at point of the three are we talking about?  The "T", the "H", the "R", or one of the "E"s?  I think it's safest to let the music decide.  The additional layer of a count can impede musicality significantly.

That's where we all (should) end up - and I suspect most people do else they remain stiff and discoordinated.  The problem for most is how to get there and I actually think exploring many different approaches is a natural way to find your own best way to dance.  The more you can move naturally to the beat of the music the better you are doing...
