OK, I really don't have much to say about the finale, because unlike most of the posters here, I agree with the recappers that this is basically a stupid, shitty show. Alison is a caricature of a human being, and thank god I've never known anyone as narcissistic as her in real life. Except the writers then add a second, even MORE narcissistic caricature of a selfish jerk, Noah, and whoa......for me this was hate watching on a par with SMASH (and I didn't think I could ever hate watch a show with as much passion as I faithfully did that clusterfuck of a series). But you know what redeemed it for me? Scotty singing. That was awesome. It was like when Megan Hilty sang her gorgeous slowed-down version of Crazy Dreams in S1 of Smash, and it was all like, oh, please just do an entire show of this person singing. The writers even managed to ruin one character I actually liked, Helen, by making her guilty of the most heinous of deceits. I hope Cole and Luisa live happily ever after, and that Joanie comes to live with them, and maybe Whitney, too, because she rocks. She's a bitch, but a delightful one. And knowing all that we do now about her parentage, of course she's a bitch. It is the only way to survive in that stupid family.
