If you read romance, than like me, you are a sucker for the HEA.
In this blog, I am going to list some of the LEAST and MOST satisfying endings I’ve ever watched or read. Take note that as I’m discussing ENDINGS… I may or may not be spoiling the story for you.
Cloud Nine by Luanne Rice. The character is fighting a terminal disease. You think she beats it. She deals with the ups and downs of how it affected her life and actually manages to fall into epic love with a super Hot pilot. They work through all of their issues and set the date. Planning, happy, warm fuzzy feelings. She DIES AT THE ALTAR!
Seinfeld. The series ends with them all sitting in jail. I mean REALLY??? HATED THAT ONE!
My Fair Lady. All of this cleaning her up, teaching her to be special, singing and dancing… and like WTH? Do Eliza and Professor Higgins hook up or what???
The fact that Bridget Jone’s Diary didn’t just end at the first one does NOT set well with me. I mean, seriously? I DID watch the second one but I have not been able to bring myself to watch the baby one… I mean… THAT WAS NOT a HEA if they have so many difficulties… Let me know if you think I should watch the third one. (Only if she ends up with Darcy).
Slightly Dangerous by Mary Balogh… One of the rare series where the last story is the best! It's like every book in that series built towards this amazing ending. Not only is it one of the best HEA EVERS, but she then goes on to write her Simply Series and you get to touch bases with all of the wonderful characters again.
Pride and Prejudice… Of Course! Not only does everybody end up with their crush, but Lydia is stuck with Wickham! LOL And oh, yeah, the new hubbies are loaded. What could be better?
North and South… The BBC Version…. Okay, but tension for that kiss was building for like, 5 hours! The only thing that would have made this better would have been a bit of an epilogue… cute kids, established prosperity… etc…. but It was pretty perfect.
Pretty much every Romance Novel ever Written…. as long as I get my HEA... Oh, and I loved GREASE LOL
HELL HATH NO FURY... Goes without saying. But just wait till you see what I've got lined up for NEXT YEAR!!!!
SO WHAT brought this on?
I watched all nine fricken seasons of How I Met Your Mother, finally came to terms that Ted was not going to end up with Robin… Okay. And I just loved the lady that was selected to be the mother… and then they kill her off???? And Robin and Barney divorce after like 3 years (although that one was a stretch from the beginning) and then Ted finally asks Robin out? But the beautiful mother is dead. DEAD! I don’t like having my emotions ripped out of me so much. I mean, it DID surprise me, and kudos to them for that… but Damnit!
I WANT MY HAPPY ENDING! Don't you?
