Hands down, the richest and best relationship on this show was Margo and Eliot. Their friendship was incredible to watch. Two broken people who understand each other and are there, judgment free, always. So, naturally, we get jackshit when it comes to closure/an ending with them.
The truth is that Eliot was wasted. Are we supposed to be happy he ends maybe with some dude who lived in his head. They have this beautiful slow buildup to Eliot and Quentin, kill off Quentin, and throw him together with someone he has had 0 romantic involvement with at the last second? Disappointing for sure. Hell, at least he had chemistry with the Dark King.
And then there is Julia. I don't even like Julia that much, but what a shit finale for her. Stuck in a bed liked a fucking prop for WorstPenny's man pain. She didn't even get a good push in. Just: okay, she pushed out the baby. That's it. I mean, she feels the connection severed and DOESN'T EVEN GET TO TALK ABOUT IT. Seriously, she holds her baby for the first time, a baby she has a magical connection with, and all she can say is that she pooped?
ok, rant over. It was a good tie up to a story but it had no heart and precious little magic or suspense. But, I did love Margo sitting in a world as it ends eating Josh's sandwich. I am happy they ended up together. I liked that Fen got to fix some of the problems inherent in Filory. I loved that we got high king Margo. Margo the destroyer and the creator.
In the end, the finale didn't make me feel much at all, which is shocking for a show that has made me feel so much over the years. It was safe and a bit disappointing. But I will miss this ridiculous, silly, poignant show.
Peaches and plums, motherfuckers. Thanks for joining me on this journey.
Now off to write my headcanon where Eliot dies someday and ends up in the afterlife to find himself walking through brakebills, only to hear a voice tell him: "you're late." 😭😭😭
