Okay, here we go… It took me a while to catch up & get around to writing my little “reviews,” but here is Part 2 of our chat about this season’s finales—& in some cases, series finales—for some of our favorite shows. Well, my favorite shows, anyway. :img14
Again: ***WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS***
Grimm — Where do I begin? Well, I’ve always hated Juliet, so I’ve been glad she turned evil this season; it gave me a more substantial reason to root against her. And even though I know it’s supposed to be one of those “oh, no, whatever will Nick do now?” moments, I looooove that Trubel killed her. Bwahahaha!
Do you think she’s actually dead, though? Or just near death? I hope she’s not only merely dead, but really most sincerely dead. (A Wizard of Oz reference, for those of you who may not have caught it.)
And is it just me, or have you been wondering what’s happened with Juliet’s so-called veterinary practice while she’s been out hexenbiest-ing it up all over the place? I mean, she didn’t spend much time at it before, I imagine the place is nothing but spiders & cobwebs by now.
Speaking of Trubel, I’m sooooo glad she’s back. I really like her & think she’s an awesome addition to the show. I hope she sticks around this time! But that one phone call she took in the finale does make me wonder who she’s in cahoots with. Okay, I think we know based on who showed up at the very, very end of the show, but still… Why? What are they up to? Is this going to be good or bad for Nick?
And finally, I am really upset & disappointed that they killed off Nick’s mom. I liked her. I liked that she was out there & when she popped in. I also think she was too good a Grimm to be killed that way. Although she was ganged-up on by—what?—a dozen bad guys, so I guess they might have gotten the upper hand.
Forever — Another cancelled show. Another mistake, if you ask me. I can’t say Forever was a favorite for me, but I enjoyed it. It was interesting, unique, & had a lot going on. So of course it had to die in a way Henry Morgan never would. :img18
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit — I wouldn’t normally mention this one, because it’s not a show I watch very closely, but this season’s finale kind of bothered me. It was a decent episode, but it bothered me so much that Olivia didn’t keep her mouth shut about who Noah’s biological father was. If ever there’s a time to keep your mouth shut, it’s when a violent, sadistic rapist/murderer/human trafficker might try to get custody of the child you’re trying to adopt. To me, this felt like a forced plot point to create the situation for the finale. :img11
On the other hand, I’m not at all surprised that Nick is leaving. All of the L&O shows seem to have a revolving door for cast members. I really like Nick & don’t necessarily want him to leave, but at this point…whatever. :img28
Battle Creek — So Battle Creek gets cancelled, but Big Brother will be coming back—again. Come on! Battle Creek may not have started with the biggest bang I’ve ever seen, but I’ve really been enjoying it. It’s gotten better week by week & was really beginning to hit its stride. Plus Josh Duhamel. Plus Dean “Mayhem” Winters. Jeez!
As for the very last episode… It was the best one yet & only made me yearn for more! :img8 Such a dramatic plot, so many secrets about Milt’s character revealed, so much growth to Milt & Russ’s partnership. I was on the edge of my seat, & spent the entire hour both sad it was the last episode & wishing like heck I had a second season to look forward to. :img4
Hot in Cleveland — I feel really badly about this one coming to a close. Mostly because I’d gotten sort of bored with it & wondered why it was still on, but this season has perked up again, so I’m wishing it were coming back.
As for the series finale, it was only okay, in my humble opinion. Typical of Hot, which is a good thing, but also awfully rushed in order to give everybody a happily-ever-after. The whole Joy & Bob adoption thing bugged me, too, because it sort of came out of left field & then moved way too fast, as well. :img23
But the very, very end…the epilogue, if you will…showing everyone five years later… That I liked. I loved seeing them all together, but paired up & happy. :img26 I’m just saying it happened a little quickly, with everything shoved into the final two episodes.
Hawaii Five-0 — Can I just say how tired I am of the back & forth, recurring Danny/Rachel drama? Never really liked it to begin with, but in the beginning it made sense. When they got back together & she got pregnant…then it turned out to be her new husband’s baby…I was annoyed. To have her show up again & suddenly announce that the baby is actually Danny’s son… Really? Really?! Can’t we come up with anything else for this character to go through emotionally?
If it weren’t for that, I think I would truly love this show. Because everything else about it works for me—big time. And I was happy to hear it got renewed for another season. But enough sticking Danny with nothing but soap opera drama, okay? Give it rest, H50.
Am I the only one who was also a little disappointed we didn’t actually get to see Kono & Adam tie the knot at the end of the season finale? I really like Adam, too, & hope he’s on the level—despite all the suspicion that keeps coming up concerning his ties to the Yakuza.
Bones — I don’t have a whole lot to say about this one, since I’ve been on the fence about it for the past several seasons. I was over Booth & Bones a very long time ago; Temperance gets on my nerves like nobody’s business, & my like versus dislike of her bounces like a rubber ball dropped from an airplane. :img20 Yet I stuck with it mainly for the murder plots because I enjoy unique death scenes & crime-solving of almost any kind.
As for the season finale, they led us to believe that Booth & Bones both leaving their jobs might make it the Series Finale, & I’d be totally okay with that. Truly. :img24
Last but not least, Supernatural — Don’t judge me for this, & don’t think it makes me any less a Sam & Dean fan, but I haven’t watched a single Season 10 episode yet…even though that season just came to an end. It’s been too hard keeping up with everything else, & I really like to sit, watch, & absorb my boys, so I’ve got them all on the DVR & plan to start watching them over the summer. :img17
Expect posts & comments as I go along, but they’ll be a little behind the curve. Just don’t spoil anything for me or I’ll make Deanmon look like Strawberry Shortcake. :img34
So do you have any thoughts about these season enders…or any others you might have watched? I’d love to hear them, even if they don’t quite jive with mine. :img26
