United States of Tara Season Finale Review: "From This Day Forward"

at . Comments

Last night marked the second season finale of our favorite "crazy" family! And boy did it involve each and every one of our beloved characters!

"From This Day Forward" brought all the craziness to the table - and at Charmaine's wedding to boot!

Sharing a Wedding Dance

Honestly, Nick really showed his true colors of being a d**k. Why wait until the last possible second to break it off with Charmaine? He had plenty of opportunities and because Tara altered into Chicken is what set him off?

Really, why not end things when Charmaine admitted to him that the baby wasn't his? Poor form Nick, poor form.

What about how creepy Kate's new boyfriend is? He's a 27 year old man that wants to buy her a condo to keep her safe from her own family? Weirdo! Plus, his hair really bothers me! It's like he's trying to be some edgy conservative guy - you really can't be both!

We LOVE Marshall and Lionel together! Finally we have a somewhat normal relationship here people! The only thing that could potentially cause a rift would be Lionel's way too serious Gay Rights stand. We get that this is a very important matter, but Marshall needed him at his Aunt's wedding and because some dumb a** Republican creepy guy gives him his opinion on marriage, Lionel leaves? He should have realized how important it was for him to be there for Marshall.

How great was it that Neil came back to Charmaine!? We knew all along that these two were M.F.E.O! I bet next season they will be buying the old Hubbard house and live happily ever after - that is, as long as Nick stays out of the picture! What do you think? Is this the last we see of Nick?

So we finally get answers as to why Tara has her alters. She and Charmaine have a half brother from another mother! After all these years, her parents finally decide to tell her the truth about what really happened. Brice must have been sexually molesting Tara and it was Tara who protected Charmaine. Why on earth would her mother send them to a foster home!? If I were Tara's mother I would kick the living sh*t out of Brice! Ugh! Mother's like that shouldn't be allowed to have children.

What does this mean for Tara now that she knows why she is the way she is? Will the alters go away and back inside Tara and be one? We doubt that!

All in all, last night was jam packed with action on all accounts. We loved every minute of it and for us, the whole episode flew by! What did you think of the season finale? Leave your thoughts and opinions below - we love hearing from you!

Until next season, we leave you with a few of our favorite United States of Tara quotes:

Kate: I'm the only one that can call my mom crazy. | permalink
Chicken: I wanna come to your wedding Char Char - Oh! Can I be your flower girl? | permalink

Marshall: Ron Paul? Really? | permalink

i also want to know the song name and person who sung the song at the end of the episode,i may want to play it at my wedding!

The reason T wasn't in this season: Alice made a statement in one of the episodes that T had sent her a postcard from Seattle that she was on the street or something like that.

Why wasn't T in this season at alllllllll except like once!

Does anyone know who sings or the name of the song that tara and Max dance to at the very end? It's an oldie, that's all I know. Thanks!

Erin, it is far too early yet to know when the next season will start. Production of the next season won't be for months and months. Generally, these kind of cable series only have one "season" per year; e.g.., another of my fave shows "Weeds" is starting up again in August, although the past two seasons began in June. Same with "Breaking Bad," just one season a year. I'd bet about anything that USOT won't be back again til 2011.

Ihope we dont have to wait until next year for season three. does anyone know when its coming out? I hope this fall and not next january. I love this show so much I hope it never ends.

Does anyone else think that the names of Tara's alters might end up spelling out something?... T, Alice, Buck, Shoshana Schoenbaum, Gimme and Chicken... Right now we only have one vowel... But maybe there will be more.

The best line in this episode, in my opinion.. Lionel: 'Sext me when the wedding is over." As he is leaving! HA!

I felt more confused than ever after the show. My daughter-in-law told me she read that this was it...it was over. I was left wondering what the deal was between "T and Dwayne"...that whole scene confused me. I feel better reading here that it will be back for a 3rd season!!
