I honestly don't mind who he ends up with as long as it isn't Nagi. I mean, their whole relationship is built on a lie (the whole initial kidnapping/confession incident) and Hayate's never shown any affection of that sort towards her. I think he's best suited as a parental figure towards Nagi.
My top choices for who he ends up with would be Hinagiku (the obvious favourite), Maria (very unlikely) and Ruka (unlikely) in that order.
Actually there were some hints of him liking Nagi even in series 1 (though his hints with her are the least). That said though, Season 1 he was mostly into Maria, season 2 very clearly liked Hinagiku. The anime-only Season 3 (series 2) obviously it was Nagi given the confession scene and how it went (it's implied he did return her feelings given the way the scene went), season 4 I couldn't tell (and seemed like they retconed the confession scene given all the girls are still trying to win him over).
Of all of them, I think I'd want him to end up with Hinagiku. They've already gave us HayatexNagi for season 3, so I'd prefer he ended up with someone else next time (prefably Hinagiku).

On to the episode. Nagi's reason for stopping the girls in the situation at hand was pretty stupid (I literually could not suspend my disbelief in that entire scene). Hayate may still be her butler, but that does not help Nagi's argument at all, and Nagi was not thinking about how this would affect all her friends and Hayate and how deeply they would all suffer knowing she would never wake up again (especialy Hayate). She's willing to forever be asleep and put all of her friends and Hayate through so much pain and suffering...just because of not wanting anyone to give him a single kiss to save her!? I know a kiss is special to Nagi, but that is a really stupid reason in this situation (and Hayate was being stupid as well making it look like a big deal in this situation). And why were they all agreeing with her!? She really presented no decent arguments. The you'll protect me last part in particular was a load of bullcrap...what is the point of him protecting you if you will never wake up (I was expecting someone to slap her after that line and call her out on how stupid she's being)!? I heavily despise scenes like this where the character(s) treats a kiss like they're giving up something big in order to save someone else from something. This is without question my most detested scene in the entire series.
While I think this episode and the last one were kind of botched, the first 10 were still good and stood on their own to me. Though I personally rate this one closer to a 7 than the previous 3 seasons.
