Didn't make sense to me
This show spent 7yrs selling us on the idea that Allison could see dead people and could see the future. There was the episode when she stopped the rape and murder of a daughter she hadn't even had yet. There was her nosy dead father in law that kept reappearing with messages about the future including to tell her that his widow needed to see a doctor. We were also sold on the idea that all 3 of her daughters had inherited the ability and that her brother had it as well even though he tried his best to ignore it. And yet no one, not Allison, not one of the 3 daughters, not the ghost of her father in law, or the brother got an early message that said "Hey Joe, don't get on that plane." REALLY? A show with that many people that could see the future in it and no one saw that coming. Come on. What a cheap trick. Not to mention ripping off a classic movie ending to try and make it all better in the end.moreless
Dreadful series ending.
This was a totally horrible way to end the series. First, there was no need to kill a major character like Joe. Secondly, this new Allison was completely the opposite of what had been carefully built up for 7 years. It is totally incomprehensible that a woman who had been so dedicated to law and order would suddenly become someone who would subvert the law in pursuing her own self interests. There had been many other episodes in which family and friends were put at risk, but she had always done what was right. So why did the writers decide to suddenly change her at the last minute? The whole story made no sense and left me totally dissatisfied.moreless
Left me smiling despite having a tear in my eye
I always hate it when a show I love finishes, but it was great that they gave Allison a proper send off with this at times moving episode.
Like others i was a bit shocked at her actions in her efforts to find the 'lost' Joe, but of course that turned out not to be real - on reflection that was her subconscious taking over, rather than what the real Alison would have done.
The final scene with her reunited with her long-dead husband left me with a tear in my eye, and I even accepted the rather cheesy waves from the cast just before the credits rolled.
This has been a series that at times has gone into some very very dark areas, but it's also made me laugh more than some so-called comedies.
I do hope we've not seen the last of the talented young actors who player the Dubois daughters - in particular I'd love to see where young Bridget ends up; she could have a career in comedy, I'd say!
All good things must come to an end, though, and this was a fitting end to an excellent series.moreless
Cool ending - I just wish it wasn't the end. I wish it was just another dream and next season I could see what happens after that dream. I will miss this series!
This was a brilliant way to end a series. It gave me closure but as with any death in a family you want your loved one back. Medium was one show I never missed since its beginning in 2005. It started out with a unique take on dreams and abilities to forsee. Abilities we all wish we had. Gradually I came to love Allison and her family. I was happy for Joe when she started being more affectionate and understanding toward him in the last season. Now oddly, I only feel a sense of loss.moreless
Complete Closure, whether you loved, hated it or were in the middle.
First off I would like to say I am giving this episode a 10 because it's a SERIES finale and I think the Series deserves a 10.
This episode should have been a two part episode. Hands Down. They had so much to cover, in so little time, the episode seemed very rushed. I don't think they spent enough time on Ariel, Bridgette or Scanlon, all who have been an intergal part of the series. They all deserved closure. One scene, although nice, of Ariel pregnant, or Scanlon embracing Lynn was hardly full closure. The daughter they focused on the most was Marie, which was nice, but all girls deserved to be shown.
I didn't want a full sappy episode, but I don't think it was right to have Joe die. I rather Allison and Joe get a divorce (then possibly get back together) then a death. Joe was such a great father throughout the series, and he died so young. Bridgette and Marie deserved the same father Ariel got. If a death was imperative, I think a different character should have died, someone big, like Devalos or Scanlon. Not Joe. Not the father. Not the guy who had to wake up numerous times from phone calls and Allisons yells from nightmares. Also is it believable that Allison would not find another man and be alone? What I really wanted was for Allison to wake up at the very end (after she sees herself die in the future)and be back in bed in the present, to warn Joe not to get on the flight. Correct me if I am wrong, but the audience wanted Joe and Allison to live a long happy life together, through the good times and bad times. Just because it was the series finale, doesn't mean people weren't rooting for this beautiful, believable fictional family. The show will be missed! It was amazing.moreless
I want to thank all of the people associated with this show for 7 years of great entertainment. The show had some of the most creative writing on television. I was glad to see that the final episode focused on the most important part of the series over the years--the love and affection between all of the family members. In the end, it was the love between Allison and Joe that took center stage. The writers can be excused for taking the ending directly from what is in my humble opinion the greatest romantic movie ever made--the Ghost and Mrs. Muir. Somehow it seemed very appropriate for the series. Great job.moreless
Fantastic show - interesting and unexpected ending...
I have to say that I'm a little shocked by how negatively some people (including long-time fans)have responded to this episode. I've been a fan from the beginning - Medium has seen me through the end of high school, college, and into the start of my career. Needless to say I'm sentimentally attached to the characters like lots of people, and it's become the only show I really watch.
All that said there are undeniably irksome moments in this episode. The script is patchy, sometimes excellent and other times lapsing all too easily into cliché ("you've seen me in your dreams...", "until the end of time..."). And I'm just not sure the 'scope' of the finale had to be quite as big, sweeping and slushy as this was - a more tightly focused, non-generation spanning number would have probably worked even better(?!) However, the return to the drug cartel stuff was welcome (after the success of the season 5 finale), and despite partially relying on the "it's just a dream" device, the structure was very clever and satisfying. I'm glad the finale relied so heavily on Alison and Joe's relationship as it has so clearly been at the centre of the show all these years. Just one final point - is it just me or does Alision actually scream "Jake" (as in Jake Weber) and NOT "Joe" when she shares a tearful goodbye with her on screen partner?! Medium - I'm going to miss you...moreless
