If there’s one thing we’ve learned to recognize after four years of blogging, it’s a good idea when we see one. Thus, in response to Entertainment Weekly’s Season finale awards celebrating the good (and well, not-so-good) we present our take. Feel free to share yours in the comments below.
Best Death: From THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, Uncle John, in the kitchen, with a butcher knife. Ouch!
Most Welcome Exit for an Unloved Character: That noise you just heard, the collective cheer of GOSSIP GIRL fans around the world upong spotting Jenny taking a bus out of town.
Best Overall Ending to an Otherwise Crappy Season: Despite still not having had the chance to see it — it’s hard to ignore the buzz surrounding the GREY’S ANATOMY two-part shocker. Also hard to ignore, the stock price of “Kleenex,” which has gone through the roof. Seriously. Just how many lives hang in the balance?!
Worst Overall Ending to an Otherwise Solid Season: BONES. Don’t believe us, go ahead and look up the term “cruel and unusual punishment” in the dictionary, we have a feeling you’ll see Hart Hanson laughing maniacally.
Best Romantic Cliffhanger: Jeff and Annie, seriously, did not see that coming. Particularly since the show is called COMMUNITY, not BIG LOVE.
Best Non-Romantic Cliffhanger: John’s dead, Jeremy’s circling the drain, Katherine’s in the kitchen with a big bloody knife and Elena just walked through the door. September is how far away now?
Best Kiss: The only time we’re okay with April pressing pause on her never-not-funny trademark eye-roll is when she’s kissing Andy. PARKS & RECREATION FTW!
Best Fight (Verbal or Physical): Dear Braverman Clan, in the epic battle between Haddie and Amber, we’ve got five simple words for you: They were on a break! #TeamAmberPARENTHOOD
Top Tissue Moment (Single tear or sobfest): Jack and Vincent, LOST.
Most Clever Single Twist: Even though we’re the first to admit we probably should have seen it coming, Alternate universe Olivia taking the place of our Olivia (who is trapped on The Other Side) on FRINGE has us anxiously imagining the possibilities that await us come season three.
Weakest Single Twist: Despite Michael Ausiello’s assertion that PRIVATE PRACTICE would feature “what I’m 100 percent certain may be one of the most shocking deaths in any of this season’s finales,” there was very little shocking about Del’s death. Particularly thanks to Chris Lowell’s uncharacteristically vocal stance with regards to his unhappiness when it came to his character’s trajectory and the fact that he had already packed his abs… err… bags for New York City.
Funniest Half Hour: MODERN FAMILY.
Spookiest Image: Living up to their mantra was the CW’s 90210 reboot which finally gave fans “something to talk, tweet and text about” by ending off the season with Naomi becoming the victim of Mr. Cannon [her teachers] very-unwanted sexual advances. Shudder.
Most Rewound Moment: You mean aside from those super clever LOST-inspired Target ads? The final 15 minutes of show, Duh.
SPECIAL AWARD: Biggest Regret That I Didn’t See It, I Just Read About It: V
