That was cute and all but DID THEY REALLY LEAVE KA'KWET IN THE SCHOOL TO ROT.
Diana if you read this i'm free on thursday and would like to hang out. please respond to this and then hang out with me on thursday when i'm free.
My girl just SNAPPED and called Gilbert out on his bullshit. I loved it!
I cannot say much other than I've been ugly crying for the past 45 minutes and when Gilbert wrote "my Anne, Anne with an e" I'm sure my soul just left my body. I'm so happy they are finally together, FUCKING FINALLY.
PS: there better be a season 4 or I'll be SUING.Ps2: this show made me hate letters so much that makes me want to punch a tree.
Beautiful episode and season finale. I'm so glad Anne got to see her parent's book and got to see what her Mother looked like, that Diana and Anne ended up being roommates, and that Gilbert and Anne finally know how they feel about one another. So many heartwarming scenes.
I really hope that we get another season, this show is sadly so underrated but has many important messages and tackles many issues (plus we have yet to find out how Ka'kwet and the other children will be freed from the school!).
This episode marks a bittersweet series finale. Show runner Moira Walley-Beckett must have anticipated this possibility as the last two episodes ramps up the pace and wraps up all the primary story lines.
Anne gets well deserved closure to discovering parentage. Anne breaking apart at the sight of her mother's portrait packs an emotional power I did not expect. Ambeth McNulty strikes a great balance of courage and vulnerability, on equal footing with Kiernan Shipka as among the very best child actresses working today.
Gilbert is the series's breakthrough character. His journey is far more nuanced and well developed than the novel, and Lucas Jade Zumann's eyes emote as much emotion as Elijah Wood on Frodo. More so than others, Gilbert has persistently been on the quest of self discovery and his efforts pays off with full clarify on his future, both career and academic fronts and romance.
Moreover, their "Shirtbert" pairing ends with an electrifying kiss that recalls A Room with a View.
Like Gilbert, Diana flourished on this final season. Her first major crush with Jerry (oh, poor Jerry) ends with discovering her self worth. She follows up by fighting for independence, which is rewarded on this final episode with a new chapter at Queens College. Her confrontation with Gilbert cements her place as the best friend we all crave.
My favorite characters are the Cuthberts, Matthew and Marilla. Their emotional wounds may not be as tragic as Anne's, but their good hearts deserved far better. With Anne, they experienced many of the joys and heartaches of being a parent, compressed to mere few years. Geraldine James and R. H. Thomson provide strong anchors and role models for young actors. Their love for Anne brims over every scenes on this episode.
Gilbert's partner, Sebastian "Bash" is a surprise addition. His character serves as a counterpoint for Gilbert's growth and Gilbert to his own pain and struggles. With his ridiculous cute baby daughter, her mother, and his new son in law, he will no doubt overcome new challenges.
This series deviates significant enough from the novel to open up many exciting possibilities. Top notch efforts all around by amazing cast and crew. The show looks and feels so authentic, and in particular, these amazing crew of young actors deserve great future ahead. I hope they all get their wish with a movie. Meanwhile, as Anne would say, I will let my imagination wrap up unfinished stories of Ka'Kwet and Miss Stacy.
I was delaying watching the final episode because i never wanted the show to end. The ending was perfect but would’ve wanted another season to save ka’kwet. It seems like that was the only loose end of the story.
The episode was really moving, it is great that Anne and Gilbert confessed their love to each other and that Diana's parents allowed her to study with Anne, and the scene when the Cutberths bring Anne her mother's book was also quite touching. I would say it was a perfect ending to the show but for the Indian girl whose plot was left unresolved. It is hard to believe that Anne cared about Ka'kwet so much and then totally forgot her. When you introduce new characters at least have the decency to finish their character arch and do not leave their fate unexplained. It is good that Matthew is alive, though, from what I recall from the books, he died before Anne went to college, so that is a positive change, as a child I cried rivers as I read about Matthew's death.
Oh what an ending.. this could have been the perfect ending for the show except for some open storylines that need a proper closure. I’ve spent more than half of the episode sobbing and the other parts with a knot in my throat. Farewell Anne, luckily we’ll see more of your young-adult years
How are they so terrible with notes?! This has been driving me insane since Anne first wrote hers. Please stop this trend hahaha.
So grown up Anne suddenly looks. I was with Matthew there. Gazing rather confundedly. Lovely to see her run and throw both brella and hat aside haha.
Also, they should change the title image here on Trakt. Spoilers? come on now.
What a beautiful end of the season though. So wonderful. I’m still weeping silently. A happy ending in so, so many ways. Love not being unrequited after all. Making choices that both align with future plans and the hearts’ desires. A most beautiful memory of parents lost early. What better thing to get than this! And Diana, sweet Diana. I am so happy for all of them.
I do wonder what happened to Kakwet though, that thread has not been picked up again. Not enough time for just one episode, I see that. The story line would not really have fit into this particular episode. Yet, I’d like to see more of her life.
One of the best series I’ve ever watched. Has an wonderful ending, and I’m demanding for season 4. I’ve been crying since I finished it and it has been 30mins or so. Can’t help it to cry over the beauty of this serie.
Gosh those last 10 minutes :heart:
