  • Hanging on the edge of my seat!

    What an episode! Finally some "action"! A thrilling part one of the two-part season finale! Robbie lying to Mary that the Camdens wouldn't approve them living together and dating, Serena finally making her move and making a pass at Eric, Annie having an admirer of her own, Lucy's and Jeremy's big news… I held my breath when James came to get the plans he had "forgotten" at the Camdens. How will the wedding of John and Priscilla turn out now that her parents are in town "taking care" of it all? Or is there going to be a wedding - since John's grandmother seems to have taken a turn for the worse. Can't wait 'til next week to find out what's going to happen.moreless
  • This was great season 5 finale!

    Serena makes a move on Eric. James makes a move on Annie. Mary comes home; unfortunately, Robbie isn’t excited to see her. Wilson still loves Mary. Jeremy comes back and he and Lucy get engaged. Simon gets back with Deena, who recently broke up with her boyfriend. Now her ex-boyfriend wants to apologize and get back together. John and Priscilla are getting married. Priscilla is nervous because her parents are coming and they didn’t want them to get married before. Cheryl breaks up and then gets back with Matt. Ruthie knows that Serena and James are bad news. This was a great season finale! I thought it was humorous when Mary lied about seeing Jeremy and having adult relations to get Robbie jealous and then Lucy comes home with Jeremy. Jeremy didn’t know that Mary was Lucy’s sister and Mary didn’t know that Jeremy was Lucy’s boyfriend. When Robbie saw Jeremy he punched him because of what Mary said. Jeremy had no idea what was going on. Meanwhile, Serena invited Eric over and James came over and kissed Annie. Annie felt weird after that, James left. This was an awesome episode and gets a 10!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Wilson says that this is a second chance for him and Mary. This would be their third chance. They were together from "Dangerous Liasons" (Season 1) to "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" (Season 2); Wilson broke up with Mary. Next was for "Boyfriends" and "Girlfriends" (Season 2), after which Wilson went away to school. That brings us to Season 5, which would be their third chance at a relationship.

    • NITPICK: Isn't it a little odd that both Eric and Annie are being approached by unmarried acquaintances at the same time?
