  • This is the last episode of the series, and the last legs of Lucy & Desi's marriage.

    This is not only the last episode of The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour; this episode aired when Lucy and Desi sadly divorced. Lucy and Desi had heated arguments off camera, leaving Lucy saddened and needing moments to herself. This episode was very hard to film, and for most of the episode Lucy hides her emotions towards Desi. But in the scene where Ernie Kovacs performs his tricks, Lucy lets those emotions slip a little. If you look closely (well, actually, it's not that hard to see) two times in the scene, you can see the sadness and frustration on Lucy's face. It's very sad to watch, and although I wasn't exactly on the verge of tears, many people probably are while watching this episode.
