That was...BEAUTIFUL. Two finales in two days is enough to do a poor girl's head in! But this was really a beautiful finale. I cried my eyes out!

I know some people hated that Alex and Gene couldnt stay together and Gene had to be alone in the end but I was totally cool with it. To me it had a certain poetry to it. I was very moved. He has a job he has to do and he can't leave. It's heartbreaking in a way but also hopeful. Because things go on. Just like life goes on and sometimes we lose people through death or other circumstances. and It hurts but we all move on. Watching the whole series come full circle and watching Gene say to the new guy the same words he told Sam in the very first episode of LOM was just, to me, beautiful. But then I do love a good cycle, must be the historian in me.

Alex realizing she was dead and then CRYING and begging to stay with Gene just BROKE my heart. It was so sad how she had to move on cause it was her time and I bet Gene wanted her to stay but she just couldn't ;_; SO SAD but so beautiful at the same time. I loved that Alex stuck with him to the end and while even though this ending was mainly about Gene, everyone still had an important role to play. Alex most of all. I don't feel like she overshadowed it, and even while Gene was celebrated here, I dont feel like he was completely canonized or glorified.

Other things I loved about this finale:
Keats. OMG HE WAS SO SCARY AND CRAZY. HE WAS TOTES THE DEVIL YOU GUYS!
I love also that Keats was a Club Tropicana fan. THE MUSIC OF EVIL.
ELEVATORS TO HELL! EEEEEE (I also feel vindicated now in my decision to never take elevators)
AND SHAZ! SHAZ IS FROM THE NINETIES! AND SHE GOT PROMOTED AT LAST. AND SHE LOVES CHRIS! FOREVER AND EVER! D'AWWWWWW <3 I love how even after that they still gave us some adorable Chris/Ray too. OT3 to the end!
JUST BEAT IT! that was such a badass scene
"I am arresting you for killing my car!"
Shaz kneeing the dutch guy and then putting a gun to his head. A+
Alex's shoes <3
The kiss! I wasnt a big shipper during S2, though I kind of liked Galex in S1 and then S3 renewed my affection for the ship.
NELSOOOON!
Dixie from Dock Green closing out the series! That was great! I just love references like that.
The very classic THE END to end the series. That is just. God so perfect. As a lover of stories and film it's just, so classic and perfect.
Basically everything! :D

Can't believe it's over. But...even though the show is over, I'd like to think this world and these characters will continue to live in our hearts and minds (and fanfiction).
So in the immortal words of Porky Pig:
