The SAT is offered on seven specific Saturdays per year, so there may not have been a better time, especially with all the shenanigans. It sure doesn't leave much time for SAT prep! Whatever, she's going to Berkeley, so good for her.
Totally called Clay very realistically getting into Brown. Whatever.
When Winston said he loved Monty, I laughed so hard I had to pause my TV. Girl, please! His hallucinating dancing with Monty at prom was also good for a chortle. Have fun with douchebag Ryan. You two deserve each other.
Speaking of, it felt weird to have Ryan and Courtney in the finale. I don't think they needed to be there, I hadn't missed either of them (especially Ryan), and it felt like a record scratch.
I had noticed the scars on Justin's face and body and had wondered if they were Kaposi-sarcoma lesions, and then I thought, "They wouldn't just randomly in the series fucking finale kill off Justin with fucking AIDS." And then, they did exactly that. I had a moment of being furious, and then I realized it was the perfect way to end this spectacularly shitty season. I couldn't even be moved at the very well-acted scenes between Justin and Jessica and Justin and Clay because I was so over it. And of course, Justin dies tragically, and suddenly everything at Liberty High is fine! The jocks are cool, Diego's cool, Winston's cool, the police are cool, everybody's cool. Justin brought peace in death! Bryce and Monty hurt people, and they were evil, but they were also sympathetic, and hurt people hurt people or something, and now everyone is so fine!
Also, the finale was interminably long.
After looking at my television for nine episodes like this:
I spent this last 90+ minutes, looking like this:
But now it's over, and I feel so...well...
I'm relieved it's over, but I wish this season had not happened because it was:
I hope many of the actors on this show find lots of work, though, because most of them really were terrific.
