Such an odd episode. It took such a gear shift from what it was building in multiple places and suddenly wrapped them up with jarringly neat bows. Alder was suddenly fine, Prez, Marshall and M made it out the situation that only moments before seemed dire, everyone got married la la la.
I can only assume it was around this point that they knew this would be a final season so had to expedite threads that weren't meant to be finished yet.
A similar thing happened with the final season of Angel but felt a bit more organic there at least.
Ok, so THAT... happened... but let's talk about Michael Horse aka The Marshall, that man is BEAUTIFUL! He's apparently 71/72 but my goodness he has aged like fine wine! I can totally see why the President was drawn to him and his megawatt smile. Gonna have to bump Twin Peaks up the watch list and maybe rewatch the episodes of X-Files he starred in. Wooh, The Marshall was the second best thing about this episode, everything else was... well... whatever.
Was that Mike Pence? Am I tripping?
Getting married by the President herself is an actual wow!Also, oh no, not Izadora!
I'm having very unwholesome fantasies about how the ex-VP's reunion with his daughter could go.
Some important emotional pay-offs this ep. ...Did it feel a bit rushed? Sure, but...tears of joy while it lasted! (And, I liked hearing Rae sing to her sweety!)
Going to miss this show.
