If you thought the question and answer sessions from Bill Lawrence and Zach Braff had some Scrubs goodies in it, way until you see Michael Ausiello's interview with Mr. Lawrence. Here's a couple excerpts from the interview which reveal some spoilers about the Scrubs finale.
Will all of the characters get their own little send-off?
Without a doubt. Everybody has their own big summing-up [episode], where they assess where they are and where they're going in the future -- even some of the secondary characters that I never felt I did right by, like Ted Buckland, who plays the lawyer. He's such a good actor, so I gave him a girlfriend and a life this year. My plan has always been to give every character resolve, and not make it too treacly. I think everyone will be happy. We just finished cutting the finale and we showed it over at ABC and they all dug it.
What's the episode about?
It's about J.D.'s exit from the hospital and whether you can hold on to the relationships of your youth, or whether some of them fall by the wayside. J.D. takes a job at a hospital 37 minutes away because it's in a town where Kim (Elizabeth Banks) lives with his kid; he wants to be in the same town as his kid. He does it thinking it will make absolutely no difference in his life, but, of course, it does. It's a little bittersweet, but I don't think it will bum anybody out.
Where did you land on the whole J.D./Elliot thing? You've made no secret of the fact that you didn't want them to end up together.
I don't want to ruin it for the audience, so let's just say I ended up compromising.
