    I loved this series finally, it was just the way I wanted it to be. Except for the fact that Eve's loving character had to go back to prison. I thought she should have found another love and moved on with her life. Lexi and Michael should have gotten married, but Lexi just wasn't ready for that. Her character made me laugh a lot. Amanda and Peters reunion was great and just as it should be, and I loved the fact that Amanda mailed the necklace to Kyle for his and Janes daugther. It was a great way of saying: "I'm in a great place, don't worry!"

    I was more than thrilled to see Megan and Ryan married and together at last. They appeares to be good for each other.

    I loved this show the whole way through! Thanks you guys for 7 great seasons!moreless
  • All lose ends of this show have come together. Amanda has come full circle. Everyone thought she was the "bad" person on the show, out to get everyone. We find out, she really wasn't that bad. She simply couldn't deal with everthing from her past.moreless

    This show was awesome, and the finale was wonderful. Who would have thought that Amanda would turn out to be a basically good person. Her and Peter end up faking their deaths to avoid prison because Amanda once killed a man, who had raped her, so it was self-defense, but it didnt' look to good for her that it would appear that way in courts. Peter had embezzled money from the hospital, so he would be in prison as well. And as Amanda said, "To bad they don't have co-ed jails." So, the two are in love, both guilty but not completly (of course Michael was involved with the embezzling as well, but is much better at hiding his tracks). Having Amanda come full circle was brilliant. She was always my favorite character on the show, so I was amazed to see the development from beginning to end of her character.moreless

    • A second ending was created to avoid leaks. The people at the funeral were reporters that were told to keep the ending a secret. Tv Guide refused to attend and thus a second ending was created.

    • Amanda claims that after she killed Kent, she went and told her mother what happened. But, if the writers paid any attention to the show six years before this, they would know that Amanda's mother abandonded her when she was a young girl, and Amanda didn't talk to her mother until she reappeared at the end season 2. Aside from that rather large contradiction, another oversight to that is when Eve first appeared, Amanda told her that Matt was the only other person who had known about this.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Eve: What can you say about a woman who let me spend 15 years in prison for something she did? She robbed me of my life, stole my boyfriend...oh, and about that husband. Did he turn out to be a sick, simpering lap dog or what? Oh, you can all pretend to be sad. But me--I'm glad. I'm thrilled! May they both rot in hell!

    • Dr. Shulman: (when Visconti comes out of Michael's bathroom) Louis? I don't understand. You're gay?!

    • Lexi: I love you.
      Michael: Ditto, kiddo.

    • Lexi: Hello, police? I'd like to report a lunatic on the loose.
      Police: (banging on door) Police, open up!
      Lexi: That was fast!

    • Peter: Oh, I already have the names picked out. There's a Billy and an Alison, a Matt, a Jake, a Jane and a Kyle...maybe a Michael.
      Amanda: Just no Kimberly, though. Promise?
      Peter: I promise.

    • (Lexi approaches Eve during Eve's "eulogy")
      Eve: Lexi! You always wanted Peter all over you! Well, here you go! (Picks up Peter's urn and flings "his" ashes on Lexi) ALL OVER YOU!

    • Michael: It's this building. It makes people nuts. Happened to Kimberly. She was the first. Hey, maybe it's the pool, the water. You jump in, you go bonkers.
