This episode is by far one of the best. The episode starts with Jim being offered his promotion. It made me pretty happy that home was where the heart was and not where the highest pay check was. My favorite story line in this episode was the connection between Andrea and Brandon. It would have been nice for them to become a couple, but the fan's would have maybe been disappointed. In this episode, we finally see something happen between the two, which I had been waiting for the entire season. Great way to end a season, especially with Brenda being 'late.'
After the Walshes find out they are moving back to Minnesota, everyone gets really depressed. Cindy, Brandon and Brenda do not want to go. But Jim can not say no to the promotion and puts his foot down, leaving them to pack. Brenda breaks up with Dylan. Kelly and Donna act very distant to Brenda and she figures maybe it isn't a bad idea. All along, Andrea offers her virginity to Brandon as a going away present and he accepts. They plan on meeting at the Peach Pit after it closes before he leaves. Once they get there, their plans are spoiled by a going away party given by all their friends. Jim shows up after owrking his butt off for a few days and realizes his family has made true friends and decides to stay in L.A.
This episode was amazing. It was shocking that Andrea would go so out of the line with her present to Brandon though, who would guess Andrea could be so open, I didn\'t.
As for Brenda and Dylan, it was heart wrenching when she had to break up with him, but when she said she may be pregnant, it just seemed so unfair it could happen to Brenda, but then again, everything happens to Brenda when it comes to Dylan.
My favorite part though is probably the smallest thing in the world. When Brenda tells Dylan she is \"late\", you see David and Donna begin dancing, which is quite out of charachter for them, considering I don\'t think they had ever spoken to eachother, but I guess it\'s an opening to season 2 as well as an ending to season 1.
I heard rumours that Aaron Spelling added the scene were Jim tells everyone at the Peach pit that the family is staying in Beverly Hills at the last minute. Apparently, this episode was to be the series finale, but ratings were too good to cancel the show after one season. If this rumour is true, the episode was written well to end the show. However, it ended with a good cliffhanger, Brenda telling Dylan she's pregnant. How uncharacteristic of Andrea to throw herself at Brandon like that, but I guess she thought it would be the last time she would see him. The best was when Dylan looks at the camera and says "I don't do cameras"
All seems to be well. Cindy is finally adjusting to life in California. Brenda and Brandon have great friends and are very excited about the prospect of a fun summer with them. Then Jim drops the bombshell. He's being promoted and getting his salary doubled. But the job is back in Minneapolis. Steve in particular takes things really hard. Andrea, fearing that she will never see Brandon ever again, decides to throw herself to him and give it up. Jim feels like he's being thrown into the Lions den is seems overwhelmed. Dylan also doesn't take this news very well, as he reveals again that Brandon and Brenda are the main reason he has stopped drinking and "going over the edge." Brandon and Steve make up. On the night Brandon and Andrea are going to do the nasty at the Peach Pit, it turns into a surprise going away party for the Walsh Twins. Jim returns early from Minneapolis, and on the fly at the Peach Pit decides that the Walshes are going to stay in Beverly Hills. Hidden highlight at the end, Donna and David are dancing together in the final scene, foreshadowing things to come for them. Oh yeah, and Brenda spills the beans to Dylan that she's late on her period. Great way to end the season, and get ready to jump right back into some summer episodes. MVC: Brandon (17), Brenda (14), Steve (8), Dylan (7), Andrea (5), and Jim (7)
I cried so hard during this episode when Dylan meets Brenda in the hall and he tells her he is hurting and its obvious that she is too, It really shows the deep love the two of them feel for each other. Oh and I love "losing my religion" in this episode when they are sitting in Dylans car. such a powerful song for the breakup
