1. Fave scene? Maybe a moment of a scene, instead: The way David and Maddie look at each other just before the montage. It's like they suddenly (and by they I mean M/D and B/C) realized that this was gonna be it, and you could see the real sadness in their faces as that registered. It hurts, but at least there's some recognition, at long last, of the all the loss. Following up with the montage is just spelling out everything that got thrown out along the way. The song helps and hurts at the same time, but it was a good choice.
2. Least fave scene: A different part of the same scene: When David and Maddie rush to the priest to get married and do the cartoony sell of their relationship. The "mwah mwah mwahs" felt lousy after everything else we'd suffered through. To have them make even more light of what we all believed in, what we wanted so badly to see, especially at this stage of the game, flat out stunk.
3. Cy: Insult to injury, IMO. Walter Bishop (no, but yes) spelling out what went wrong with David and Maddie is a bitter pill to swallow.
4. David went out on a low note for me, despite any last minute redemption attempts. After the crap that went before and the squandered potential that went before the crap that went before, it was too little, too late, and I hate it. "Fooling around"? Jackass. Why why why did they do that to him?
Anyway, I've said it before, but the ending of this show was bitter, ugly and cruel. A thoroughly disappointing train wreck unbefitting the brilliance and beauty of its best seasons, both in terms of the relationship between Maddie and David and in terms of the big picture of a once great and powerful endeavor fallen from grace. Yeah, it's just a show, but it was a wonderful show that made millions and millions happy every week. To see that destroyed and laid low like it was, taking the remaining loyal audience to the opposite of happy, and not in a good way? Epic fail.
Bitter? Oh, a tad. LOL and smh.
Agree on all five points, particularly the marriage thing--how dared they make fun of something all of us wanted to see! (Ironically, they handled the subject much, much better in "Maddie Hayes Got Married," in my opinion.)
Sending hugs to you, dear...and to all of us whose hearts ache, even now. May I prescribe a soothing regimen of S2 and 3 episodes? Watch 2 and call me in the morning!
