Good question, but the explanation falls a bit short. I was very disappointed when I first saw this behaviour. A semicolon is a statement terminator and should be used after every statement - but apparently, END TRY is not considered a statement by this logic. So the semicolon after END TRY is not interpreted as terminating the END TRY, but as terminating a dummy, zero-length statement. (They exist. Try typing a bunch of semicolons and hit execute - it will complete without errors).

In short - just after I had learned myself to consistently semicolon-terminate every statement, I now have to leanr myself NOT to do that for at least one statement (END TRY).

I selected the syntax error option but not for the reason stated. The question states SQL 2005 and higher, but THROW evidently makes its appearance with SQL 2012, so is invalid syntax is the right answer for 2005, 2008, 2008 R2, eh?
So, another case of "it depends".

Thanks for clearing that up Hugo - I was scratching my head trying to work out where the extra statement between the try and the catch was.
