I've been a huge fan of this show... but this finale two episodes was a bit of a head swirl. They packed so many things into the 2 episodes that I actually started thinking some of it was going to be a dream sequence or something. It was a little bit overwhelming. I think they could have cut it in half, and dealt with things a bit more slowly... save a few of the major events for next season!! 1. Cookie sleeps with 2nd man ever only to be ripped out from her own company as a revenge from Lucious
1a) Malcolm quits and boom, Cookies new relationship is over 5 minutes later.
2. Hakeem takes on his father and gets punched, then sleeps with Anika and threatens to join the competitor.
3. Billy Boretti makes a big threat to take legal action on Lucious but with a little balcony hanging from Jamal (which personally just seems very weird and not very believable) he's suddenly a non-threat. Boretti has seemed like a toothless tiger the whole season when it comes to the crunch.
4. Suddenly from a whole season and lifetime of prejudice and anger towards Jamal, Luscious said, "Oh I love you now. You're the head of the company.' And Jamal says, 'oh yeah cool. its all forgiven no worries.' like in the space of 2 minutes!
5. Lucious trys to get Andre back. Is rejected. Immediately corrupts Andre's new faith in the church, and makes Hudson a star gospel singer in his massive performance... ummm really?
5a. Andre's stint with the church and finding himself disappears as quickly as it appeared, and suddenly his mental health is ok again - I just feel like they overlooked some seriously important topics here and rushed through it. It's an arc that could have been played until halfway through next season in all honesty. It feels like Andre's whole breakdown and recovery was in the space of a few days. I just think it was a theme thats really important and wasn't properly addressed.
6. Cookie finds out Lucious killed Bunky and tries to kill Lucious, and then gets thrown out of the company for the 2nd time and removed from the building. A bit of a theme going on here?
8. Jamal is the head of the company now... like he's already making the decisions? Reallly??? Isnt he meant to start being groomed.... He's just instantly the head. Ok.
9. Anika and Cookie finally take each other on. That was good. But working together that soon... nahhhhhh.
10. Rhonda leaves Andre, then comes back. And she's pregnant
10a. Ohh and she kills Vernon in the process... Reallllly??
11. Lucious gives a seriously unbelievable speech about how he now accepts homosexuality and then gets arrested for Bunkies murder.
11a) Suddenly arrested 2 mins before he can perform... ??? Police wouldnt have even made it through the security in that amount of time. He would have at least had ample notice.... too much. They should have given him his performance.
12. The same FBI agent who was with Cookie before is somehow involved in a local police investigation to nab Lucious for Bunkies death.
13. So many cameos you can't even take one in before the next one comes to edge him out.
14. Jamal does a show down 8 mile style with the homophobic rapper.
15. So many flashbacks I felt dizzy!
16. Oh yeah... the whole IPO thing was passed (the main topic of the show since 5 minutes in), and all the pending dramas didn't stop it.
17. Oh and the other main topic of the series so far... Lucious is suddenly cured! He's not dying. It's all good. Everyone can hate him without feeling guilt. That was dealt with very quickly. I really think that revelation could have been stretched out another season. It was literally the only thing that could give his character any sympathy...
18. Despite the amazing amount of Bold and the Beautiful style events occuring in this finale, I didn't feel one moment of emotional empathy with any character, which is the first time in the whole series. They all came across as seriously self involved and pretty unlikeable. I think Malcolm was the only one who showed integrity... Hahah well that's my 2 cents :) .....

I don't know how a Nolan and Louise hook-up would be either. But I do really love Nolan and Louise!! Louise is sooo stunning. A real life 'Jessica Rabbit.'
Emily and Jack are just a bit weird... does she really like that Ben guy. he's so boring. I think emily just has some comitment issues and some healing to do with her father, aiden etc. Kind of ironic that both her parents are alive in the end.
Speaking of bringing characters back from the dead (which this show is getting nearly as good at as B&B) could the writers pleeeeeease bring back Conrad soon! I miss the Victoria and Conrad debates so much. Hell I miss the whole Grayson family. Just get Daniel back as well. Actually isn't Charlotte still alive? Who can even keep track. I don't care what lame story they concoct to keep Victoria on the show... as long as she stays I am happy. That woman is pure gold!
