Agreed about the episode. I saw some talk about it on Reddit (what’s in the spoiler (not really a spoiler). I don’t agree (personally) with what was said. A character can love both people and still be “honest”. Of course when people go crazy with their fan fiction, etc they become much more easily “hurt” when things don’t go exactly as they have it in their head cannon.

This season has flown by. I’ve quite enjoyed it. Thank goodness I’ve never been to this reddit you speak of. Being reddit free the season finale looks bananas. And bananas are good!

This season has been good. I am looking forward to the finale. It does appear that something bad is about to happen.

Man, do I love the dialog in this show. The sequence between Margo and Fen about Josh being a fish! Alice explaining that some rabbits need to be bribed to talk! This show is just loaded with this stuff, so much so that I'm not sure it's possible to take it all in with just a single viewing.

Look what it did to Josh.
You're saying Josh is a f***ing fish?
Well, of course not. He's a Fillorian Dying Fish.
A Fillorian F***ing Fish is a totally different species.
Wait, "Dying Fish"? I really hope that's a metaphor.
Nope, they only live a couple of days.
And you're sure that's Josh?
Oh, I saw it happen.

The back and forth with the vet was also great..."Did you F*** this fish??"

Yes, Margo's deadpan snarkiness mixed with the bizarre situations she gets into is one of the best parts of the show.

Wow, I really liked the finale, but it appears the subreddit for breakbills is in flames with people that are upset. Since something fairly major happens, I’m going to wait until other people post to discuss further.

Didn’t realize this was the season finale. The season flew by. Really enjoyed the finale. They even worked in a song, which was a moving bittersweet scene. Not sure whats in store for Q and the gang but looking forward to the ride. And why is a nickel bigger than a dime?

I really enjoyed this season. The storyline including the season finale plus the cast were definitely in synch.

Q is “gone”, actor decided to leave the show. From what I have seen posted not even the actors knew until the very end that this was it for him.

It seemed his character got less and less interesting as the seasons went on.

I enjoyed it...the first 1/2 was a little rushed and felt slightly un-even in pacing...

Some spoilery stuff:
Spoiler!


All in and all - not the best season but highly entertaining and I'm looking forward to changes/differences in next season.

No spoilers needed now

I wouldn’t say it was “easy”...it took them all season to figure out how and even then they needed “everyone” performing a spell at the same time to achieve it. It looked “simplified” I guess on screen, but I don’t think what they did (IMO) was easy.

I didn't realize the actor wanted to leave. Wonder if the cast knew at the time they were filming the bonfire scene? Would make that scene even more moving. I kept thinking Q was gonna get rescued or have some afterlife/underworld storyline. Guess he won't be pulling a Bajie.

Now I’m reading different things (what’s new these days)...it appears to be “mutual”...according to the below interview the cast didn’t even know until two days before the finale to prevent spoilers from going out. They even filmed a “fake” ending “just in case”.

https://www.denofgeek.com/us/tv/the-...-secret-ending

Kind of crazy....and they are careful with their words. He is “dead dead” but also say he’s not a cast regular (which to means they could pull him back for small parts).
