  • Overall, this was a great season finale. All the major characters had some new material that was interesting and unpredictable. Since the finale was two hours long, we were able to see a glimpse of all the different storylines.moreless

    The love story of Nick and Hannah reminds me of Meredith and Derrick in Grey's Anatomy. It is so obvious they love each other, but they just can't seem to get it together. I hope the writers of Oct. Rd. don't make the same mistake as Grey's by dragging out the romance until the audience could care less and loses interest in the relationship. I was glad to see Nick's brother, Ronnie, admitted his feelings for Aubrey. It must've been difficult for him to do. I'm glad Aubrey kissed him so he would not misinterpret words. Kissing is so much more powerful. I was disappointed in Eddie's reaction to Janet's confession. Janet's heartfelt passion for Eddie during her explanation of her unfaithfulness was very moving. This monologue was the acting pinnacle of the entire show. Janet is my favorite actress and character on the show. Eddie was probably on lots of pain medication and wasn't reacting like he would if her were not medicated. Hopefully, next season he'll discover what a gem Janet can be and the sincerity of her love. I was proud that Eddie resisted his old girlfriend, Rory when she 'came on' to him. Maybe his restraint made him angry that Janet couldn't also restrain herself from Rooster. Two faced Ray is my least favorite character. I hope some construction lands on him to get him out of the picture. Hannah is sooo blind when it comes to Ray. How can she believe that sleezebag? It was insightful of Hannah to believe Nick would come through at the end by making the right decision to stay at home. I thought he would leave again for his own selfish career interests. My other favorite character is pizza girl. She is so cheerful, zany, and lively that I find myself smiling whenever she is in a scene. I hope her boyfriend finds a good reason to finally come out of the house next season. The mystery of Sam's father was still not revealed. We will become frustrated if too many loose endings keep hanging while more and more new stories are being created. We still have the story lines of the commander's cancer, his relationship with Leslie, the reconciliation of Ikey and Owen, the status of Owen's marriage, the creeps who beat up Eddie, Aubrey's dad, Ray's ex-wife Christine's revenge, the marriage of Hannah and Big Cat.moreless
  • Sucky.

    7.0
    Overall, as a series finale, this episode left everything to be desires. Almost nothing is resolved, and it almost makes me feel as if I never should have tried to watch the show. It always had a great feel to it, but it just left me with almost nothing to feel.



    Nick and Hannah didn't end up together, that's the biggest problem. We though Ray got better which I didn't like, but then it was revealed he was bad after all. I also didn't like that Owen forgave Ikey already, but the ending scene was worth it, I guess.



    Janet and Eddie were left on a really bad scene as well, and so did The Commander. So, overall, it never should have ended like this.moreless
  • Horrible series finale!

    5.0
    Really?...Pretty disappointing as a series finale! If it had just been a season finale it would have been pretty good but that was a bad way to end the series. They left way to many questions unanswered! Does aubrey choose nick or his brother? Will Hannah go through with the wedding or realize she still loves Nick? And who on earth is Sam's real father? What happens with Eddie and Janet? I guess we'll never know... Everyone knows that Nick and Hannah were meant to be together and I thought for sure they would get together by the end of the show...I just didn't think the end would be so soon! And we all know that Gavin isn't really Sam's father...but who could it be.. Nick or Eddie? I definitely don't think they should have ended it like that!!!!moreless
  • Series finale.

    A beautiful series finale of October Road, well more of a season finale. What people don't seem to get is that they didn't film this episode thinking this would be the last episode of the series, this was intended to be a season finale, regardless of that, I loved how it ended. With Ronnie & Aubrey kissing, Eddie & Janet breaking up, Owen forgiving Ikey, Nick staying at the Ridge, most of the story lines this season were tied up here, and quite nicely.



    The last scene of this show was just amazing, and I'm really going to miss this show's humor and drama. The guys air jamming together was really great, and it just came full circle from the first episode. Everything that Hannah said, Janet made it about herself which I hated, and she definitely got what she deserved.



    Even though some story lines were tied up in this finale, we still don't know who Sam's father, and of course Phil is still a shut in, which I'm sure we all expected to overcome that in the finale, but it was still perfect regardless. Now I'm off to watch the real series finale, the ten minute wrap up, but all in all, this was an amazing finale to an amazing show.moreless
  • Disappointing.

    6.0
    Engagement Party: With the upcoming engagement party of Hannah and Ray and the recent beat down of Eddie, will it go on? Hannah is having speculations on whether Big Cat had anything to do with the ambush and let's face it, she's not the only one and for a good reason; Big Cat hates Eddie's guts.



    Hospital Boy: Eddie is stuck in bed and it just so happens it is way easier to confess to a guy who's helpless. Nick confronts him about his departure, Ikey about everything that has been happening in the past season and one more person I dare not mention, and it's not really that obvious.



    Drastic Decisions: Nick makes one huge decision that changes everything. Ronnie makes a confession that could hurt his brother. Eddie may have just made the biggest mistake of his life.



    The episode was a little disappointing, sure it had the finale feel, but it was everything that I would hate in a finale. Everything was coming by so fast, the only thing I liked about this episode was the Janet and Eddie scene.moreless
