    I would just like to start out by saying that I absolutely loved this episode, and I think that this is the best season finale that The L Word has had so far. It was great to Bette and Tina back together and happy again after everything that they've been through as a couple. I'm so glad that Helena is back again. I've really missed not having her around for most of the season. I thought that it was great that she bought SheBar from "Lover Cindy" for Kit and then hooked up with her after Cindy breaks up with Dawn Denbo. I absolutely loved the scene where Cindi breaks up with Dawn Denbo. It was so funny. That scene was definitely the highlight of the episode for me personally. All in all, I absolutely loved this episode. All of the story lines were great. This episode was so well written and so well acted by everyone involved. As for the ending of the episode, it absolutely blew me away, and I can't wait for season six to start so I can find out what happens next. Finally, as I said earlier, I absolutely loved this episode, and it definitely reminded me of exactly why I fell in love with The L Word in the first place.moreless

    Well-written plot! Great ending! Shane was escalating and finally she made her final mistake. I am expecting to see some development in her character during the next season. Jody did something really painful to Bette as Bette is very keen on her career. That was a stab in the back, mostly because Jody found the joint in Bette's armour and took advantage of it. Tina and Bette dancing together was just amazing..the dresses, the song.. the kiss- everyting was a piece of work! EXCELLENT! Let's pray that Tina and Bette will stay together. Laurel Holloman and Jennifer Beals are pretty amazing!moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Phyllis: Molly is one of the most brilliant students I've ever encountered.
      Shane: I'm not surprised to hear that.
      Phyllis: And you're not worthy of her.

    • Adele: (giving a speech) ... And Jennifer Schecter, who gave me the opportunity--
      Jenny: I didn't give you anything. You stole it.

    • Niki: I'm just so sick of everybody wanting me to be who they want me to be.
      Shane: Yeah, that sounds like fun.

    • Molly: So what do girls do now? Do they throw their drink in your face?
      Shane: Yeah, sometimes they do.
      Molly: I'm not going to do that. You don't deserve that, you deserve compassion. But I'm not going to try to save you, it's something that you have to do for yourself, but take your time. Hopefully, I'll still be around.

    • Kit: (to Dawn) You can go home, or you can stay and do the dishes, or the floor--- we got a lotta glasses to pick up in here.

    • Phyllis: Bette says that your the kind of person that any caring mother would not want their daughter to have a relationship with.
      Shane: I don't buy it. Bette would never say that.
      Phyllis: She says that you'll be up and after the first little hottie that shakes her booty at you. And you know, your friend Alice told me that the longest relationship you've ever had was six months. You proposed to some poor little girl, and then left her at the altar. Even your friends think you're bad news, Shane. You know what would really suck, though? Is that if you did the same thing to my daughter. Are you going to throw Molly away like a piece of garbage?
      Shane: No.
      Phyllis: How do you know? How can you be sure that you're not gonna find some other little hottie that you can't keep it in your pants around?

    • Bette: ... And everyone always thinks that when their first love leaves.
      Tina: You were my first. And I thought I would die.
      Bette: I never left you.
      Tina: Yes, you did. But then you came back.

    • Clea: So, was that your girlfriend on the phone?
      Alice: Yeah, it was.
      Clea: That's a little bit disappointing for me.
      Alice: Me too. (pauses) God, that sounded bad.

    • Helena: Well, what makes you think that I'm any more dignified now, mummy?
      Peggy: To tell you the truth, I don't know that you are. But I have to leave all my fucking money to someone, and I'm not going to leave it to my Lhasa Apsos.

    • Helena: (about Dawn and Cindi) I don't understand, where did these women come from?
      Kit: From hell, via Miami Beach. Dawn Denbo and her servant-maid Cindi.

    • Molly: (seeing her mother and Joyce at a table) I am so not going on a lesbian double date with them!

    • Peggy Peabody: Now before I die, there's some things that I want to say to you. First of all, about your clothes--
      Helena: Mummy, you're not going to die.
      Peggy Peabody: I very well might. Before I do, I want to make sure that you're situated. Thank you very much.
      Helena: I am very well situated.
      Peggy Peabody: A drab little hut in the likes of dregs Tahiti with the tax-evading granddaughter of a vanilla pod picker doesn't strike me as very well 'situated'.
