    For the finale, I liked the idea of Dorothy getting married, but I think I would've liked to have seen Sophia moving out with Dorothy and Rose marry or be with Miles and have Blanche stay in the house by herself.  That way, the series would have come full circle, because in the pilot Blanche was alone until they all got there, and then in the end it would be her alone again.  I would have liked to have seen something like that.  Here's some of my ideas.

    IDEA ONE:  One Flew Out of the Cuckoo's Nest - Part One

    A-Story:  Dorothy meets Blanche's Uncle Lucas and they find they have more in common than they thought.

    B-Story:  Rose worries that with Dorothy meeting Lucas the girls will break up and she decides to try and find Miles.

    C-Story:  Blanche gets a letter that her dream about George having been alive the previous season was true, and that he is in fact still alive.

    One Flew Out of the Cuckoo's Nest - Part Two

    A-Story:  Dorothy and Lucas make it to the alter and Sophia finally tells Dorothy all the great things about her.

    B-Story:  Rose finds Miles, but he is already with someone else, but he leaves that woman for Rose.

    C-Story:  Blanche, not wanting to be alone once all the girls leave, decides she'll listen to what George has to stay, and in the end he moves back in.


    IDEA TWO:  End in Sight - Part One

    A-Story:  Dorothy goes out with Blanche's Uncle Lucas and thinks it's just to get back at Blanche and later runs into Glen, the man she went out with in seasons 1 & 5 and she has to choose between the two.  She chooses Glen, but a problem arises when he insists that Sophia must go back to Shady Pines.

    B-Story:  Miles comes back to town and Rose is unsure whether or not she should get back together with him, until she has a visit from her late husband Charlie in a dream and he tells her that she should move on with Miles.

    C-Story:  Blanche interviews possible new roommates until she gets a letter from her brother-in-law Jamie that George is still alive.

    End in Sight - Part Two

    A-Story:  Dorothy turns to Lucas as a friend after learning that Glen insists Sophia goes back to Shady Pines and the two learn they have a lot in common and she learns she actually has feelings for Lucas who invites her and Sophia to move in with him to Hollingsworth Manor.

    B-Story:  Rose tells Blanche that she has to give it a try with Miles and that she'll be moving out.

    C-Story:  George arrives and Blanche decides to hear what he has to say and in the end the two stay together.


    IDEA THREE:  Golden Endings - Part One

    A-Story:  Dorothy meets Blanche's Uncle Lucas and he proposes to her.

    B-Story:  Rose learns her daughter is getting divorced and she struggles with whether or not to move in with her to help out.

    C-Story:  Blanche receives an offer on the house and decides to sell.

    C-Story:  Blanche, stunned that the girls are not moving on, has to come up with a way to get the house back.


    IDEA FOUR:  Four Stuck Together - Part One

    A-Story:  Dorothy meets the man of her dreams and tells Sophia that she is going to end the relationship because she doesn't want Sophia to be lonely, and Sophia is happy at first.  Until she gets a visit from Sal telling her that it's time to let Dorothy leave the nest.

    B-Story:  Miles returns to town but Rose isn't sure she can trust him again.

    C-Story:  Blanche gets a visit from her friend Jake from season two, and accepts his marriage proposal thinking that all the girls are moving on.
