Last Friday, CBS showed the last episode of “Medium”. Cheryl & I are fans and it took us until now to actually watch the episode. SPOILER ALERT: If you are a fan of “Medium” and have not seen the episode, STOP READING THIS.
Okay, the rest of you saw it, right? Good.
Was that the worse series finale you’ve ever seen? Didn’t Joe and Allison deserve better than that? Didn’t Ariel, Bridget and Marie deserve better than that? Didn’t we – the loyal fans – deserve better than that?
The writers killed off Joe – right at the beginning – his plane from Hawaii goes down and that’s it – or is it?
Flash forward to seven years later, Allison dreams that Joe is alive somewhere in Mexico. She so believes this that she blows a huge case against an evil drug lord to find out what he knows about Joe. Then, she takes a teenage Marie down to Mexico to find him. And, there he is, standing in front of her with no memory of who he is until he calls for her and we find out the whole truth. Joe is really dead and Allison is left on her own to finish law school and raising their three daughters.
Didn’t you just want to scream?
Flash forward 41 years and Allison is living in a nursing home. She passes away and there is Joe waiting for her. They kiss and we fade out.
Worse ending ever!
I want Joe and Allison to have a happy endingg. I don’t want to live 41 years without the love of my life and I don’t want to see two TV characters to do so either. Yes, I know it is just a TV show. Yes, I know that there are more important things to worry about. But, I’ve invested what 6 – 7 years in watching these people and I expected a much better ending. We barely even got to see the kids!
There was one bright spot when they showed the main characters through the years and then now walking away. Oh and the notice that the real Joe and Allison are both alive and well.
Goodbye, Dubois family, I know I’ll miss you.
