What I’m Watching: Casual (Penultimate Episode)

Casual: Season 4, Episode 7 “All About You” (B+)

Who would have thought that, going into the final episode of this show, Leon and Laura would be the ones in relationships that seem like they’re actually going to last? Leia and Leon both looked miserable when they were talking about the things they’d have to split, and kudos to Leia for being impulsive as she often is and telling Leon that she wasn’t okay with him giving up on her. To be fair, Laura isn’t really in a relationship, but she’s come to a point where she’s recognizing what she’s done and determined to right her wrongs, sticking around all day to be able to tell Tathiana how she feels and to apologize in person rather than over a text to show that she means it. Something tells me they may just work out. Rae was looking happy about her date with Alex, but then the news about her impending move to Texas changed it all, ensuring that they’re not going to be able to have a happy life together after all. Alex is going to be back at square one after this development, whereas Val for once is taking charge of her situation, shutting John down when he repeated, over and over again, his story about nearly dying after a minor accident caused by his own recklessness. I’m not sure what will happen and be settled in the finale, but I’m feeling very good right now about where this show has gone and how this final season has played out.
