I wish i agreed. If I agreed I'd buy the whole series like i planned to and I'd start watching it over again right now. But I just don't get it. I never once doubted they would end up together. It was just a matter of how and when. The overall feel of the ending got me. When Justin and Brian announced the marriage was off, why were they smiling? I didn't understand that. Brian changing himself for Justin confused me too.It just seemed like a mess. A train wreck. A very fast plan crash when you, moments ago, were soaring through the sky. I just was so taken aback. I kept waiting for Justin to show up at babylon while Brian was dancing. It just seemed so final. I took his comment of time to mean that the world doesn't stop for a broken heart. Keeping the rings to me meant just that... he kept them. Justin's response that they don't need rings to show they love to each other said it all to me. They were just rings. He didn't need to hang on to them. I dunno, the ending makes sense but after 5 seasons of such an up and down relationship couldn't they throw us a bone? Brianfell in love, admitted it, and matured. Excellent. That is the bright side to this tragic ending? Thank you Justin for opening my eyes now goodbye. I just wish there was something concrete making me believe they eventually got back together because in my mind i can picture Justin in new yorkwith another guy like the fiddler. Ugh. It's a terrible image. Time passes and passes and their love is not forgotten but it's no longer the same. It's just so horrible. I don't understand. I really, sadly, believe it was over for them. That is why I am so heartbroken. Brian even said if he sees Justin NEVER AGAIN it's only time. And the very ending, what in the world. The thumpa thumpa goes on. Is that supposed to make me feel better? Why couldn't they have had Justin say he wasn't ready for marriage and he needed to go to New York. Brian would agree and let him go. Justin would leave, the thumpa thumpa would go on and at the end we seeJUSTINhas kept the rings. That would be a clear cut sign to me and I would be so happy.Who cares if Brian keeps the rings? He's not the one going anywhere. Justin is the one out exploring things and possibly running into more fiddler guys. Yikes. What a mess. I rented the whole series from blockbuster and watched espisode after episode every night for two weeks and I loved it. But that ending has left me feeling so disappointed. I can't imagine watching the series again from start to finish knowing their relationship is doomed. Sheesh. My friends say i need to join a bowling league beause i am too hung up on this. I say, you watch to characters evolve and fall in love season by season just to separate in the end then you'll understand. Those Sex in the City fanatics have no idea.
