Pretty Little Liars Series Finale *SPOILERS* — June 29, 2017

Pretty Little Liars Series Finale *SPOILERS*

I finally got a chance to watch the PLL series finale last night and HOLY CRAP! Now I may be the only one with this opinion but I personally loved how things turned out.

DO NOT CONTINUE READING IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED THE SERIES FINALE YET!!!

First off, I can’t believe that Spencer is the one with the twin and that she’s A.D!! I thought that it was going to be Ali’s twin who was causing all the issues. I think that Troian was the best actress to play the part, she has a certain way of portraying crazy and evil that I don’t think any of the other girls could have pulled off. I personally loved the accent, I loved the reasoning behind why Alex became A.D., I love that she killed Wren and was wearing him around her neck. Now I realize that it was probably something that many people guessed and a lot of people are disappointed in this but I think it was a great reveal. Go ahead and argue with me about it, just my opinion.

I think it was completely messed up for them to make Aria sterile and not able to have kids. I get that it was a great reason for Ezra not to have shown up to the wedding and completely believable but come on! Let the girl get her happy ending with her man she fought for over and over again and some kiddos! I’m SO glad that they had Hanna and Caleb act like an actual couple and have a big disagreement about Mona living with them. It had seemed since the flash forward that they were the “perfect” couple and nothing ever went wrong. Reality check! Can I just say that their kid would be adorable if there was ever a reboot of the show??? Alison proposing to Emily was the icing on the cake. I love that it wasn’t planned and they were fighting and Alison’s sweatshirt!!! It was perfect. I’m so happy that Toby and Spencer are getting their happily ever after. They deserve to be together.

Speaking of Toby…Jenna helping him and the girls out! Holy shit! Never thought the day would come where she would be helping the girls out but I’m glad she did. It was nice closure to her story line, finally being the good one and on the right team. Toby also handling the situation like a champ when he had to figure out which of the twins was actually Spencer. Cool, calm, and collected like always but kicking ass and taking names.

Mona, Mona, Mona…the crazy girl who I’ve loved since the beginning of the show. I honestly thought that she was going to be part of the A.D. team to come full circle with her being A in the first few seasons. I was VERY surprised when she ended up in France and had her dollhouse with Alex and Mary. Goes to show that the game will never stop for her in her twisted head. I’m glad she finally got back what was hers to begin with.

The final scene with the girls. I cried. It was great closure to a whirlwind 7 seasons of ups and downs and near death experiences. Part of me was expecting it to end with a group text message from some mysterious person and everything starting over again, but that could have been my hopes that it wasn’t really ending. I’m not ready to accept it. I feel like I grew up with this show and I matured with the girls as they did (although we all still have our immature moments).

Finally, the last scene with the new mean girls and Addison going missing…ummm WHAT?!?!?! Why? Why? Why? Do not make a remake of this show focusing on that! What this show did was powerful, it moved a generation, it broke barriers and spoke volumes. Do not ruin that with a new set of girls and more mysteries.

What did you think about the series finale??

Grey’s Anatomy Season Finale — May 20, 2017

Grey’s Anatomy Season Finale

Holy crap! That’s honestly the first words that popped into my head pretty much in the first 2 minutes of the episode. It was insane. It was beautifully put together and the acting was fantastic. Just as a heads up there will be SPOILERS so don’t read if you haven’t watched the episode that aired on Thursday, May 18th.

We picked up right where we left off with the explosion in the hospital. We see the little girl, Erin, calling out for Stephanie who is somehow ALIVE after being literally inches from the explosion. We also see fire everywhere. We also see that Erin’s leg is crushed by a piece of equipment and the only thing keeping her from hemorrhaging is this equipment. Stephanie acts like a superhero surgeon when she uses a tourniquet and whatever it is that she used to pack the wound and saved the little girl. Then the superhero herself JUMPS THROUGH FIRE with the little girl to escape the burning room. They make it to the staircase where we see Stephanie has severe wounds but her and Erin continue to climb up the many flights of stairs to try and escape everything burning around them. They make it to the top only to find out that Edwards dropped her key card somewhere in the smoky mess. Being the selfless doctor that she is she’s determined to save her patient and covers her up with the blanket even though it would mean her demise. Never fear though because in true Grey’s fashion, Edwards sees her key card in all the smoke and leaves the little girl to go get it. By some fate she makes it back up and they get out onto the roof and start screaming for help only for Erin to go into cardiac arrest (always gotta throw another wrench in there Shonda don’t you?). Stephanie does CPR and is screaming like a crazy person trying to get help. Somehow Warren remembers that he saw Edwards with the rapist and brings the whole crew back into the burning hospital to find her. They find the completely charred rapist body and then see the blood marks from Erin’s wound. They follow the blood and by the grace of all that is holy they find Stephanie doing CPR. Again, in true Grey’s fashion they turn the ER (one of the few safe areas) into an OR and Webber and Bailey get to work and ultimately save Erin’s life and leg. Edwards passes out and we head into the next day.

Catherine isn’t thrilled at how one of her surgeons and a missing child were left in a burning hospital and it all goes back to Minick who “forgot” to tell the police that Edwards was missing in there. Her reasoning? She had patients and if Edwards was following the rules and wasn’t taken out of therapy this wouldn’t have happened. WRONG! Bailey gives her great speech which brought tears to my eyes about how they don’t produce robots at this hospital, they produce heroes. We see Arizona talking to Minick about wanting to get it on and Minick says she has to pack she got fired. FINALLY! BYE BITCH! We also see Webber go in to see Edwards who is going through extreme debridement of her burns. She also has an epic speech saying that she wants to live her life, that she spent so much of it in a hospital from childhood to now and she just wanted to breathe. At the end of this speech, she quits.

We also have the whole story line that Hunt’s sister, Megan, is still alive. I’m not really thrilled by it and it kind of was randomly thrown in there if you ask me. We don’t get to see Megan during this episode but I’m sure she’ll be a big player next season.

I thought this episode was absolutely amazing. It was what I had been waiting for the entire season and Shonda delivered. I thought it was the best send off for one of the surgeons that there has been, one that was well deserved and didn’t end with me sobbing over their death. I saw true heroism from Edwards and Warren and quite frankly Bailey who finally put her foot down and acted like a true chief. I’m kind of sad that Megan is alive and that Riggs went running back to see her leaving Meredith (even though she did say that if it was Dereck she would have left long before he did). I was rooting for Mere and Riggs and wanted to see what she was like in a full blown relationship after Dereck. They better have something big planned for her and not some massive depression.

All in all I was extremely satisfied with this episode and quite frankly can’t wait for next season. I think the entire dynamic is going to change with Edwards gone. She was honestly one of my favorite residents and I’ll miss her a ton.

What were your thoughts on the episode if you watched?
