I've been taping Ed since it moved to Fridays, and I'm so glad I had a chance to watch the finale by myself! I sobbed for the last few minutes. (No, it really doesn't have anything to do with a friend of mine I've known since HS on whom I've harbored a crush ever since ... really.)
The only part of the season I missed was any kind of resolution between Molli and the firefighter-dad (we just call him Biff). Does anyone know what happened there?
Ever since Frankie stepped in, I just couldn't like her. I tried. Really. But I've always, always, always wanted Ed and Carol to be together. I couldn't figure out how Ed could choose to be with Frankie - it would be the most manic household when they got married. Besides, she never cut her ties with Leon, so it was SO unfair of her to demand the same of Ed. :mad:
As far as finales go, I thought it was great. I'll be very sad if it's the series finale - but even as a season finale, it wrapped up loose ends instead of leaving us up in the air (I hate that).
"In all our woods there is not a tree so hard to kill as the buckeye. The deepest girdling does not deaden it, and even after it is cut down and worked up into the side of a cabin it will send out young branches, denoting to all the world that Buckeyes are not easily conquered, and could with difficulty be destroyed." - Daniel Drake, 1833
