What I’m Watching: You, Me, Her (Season Finale)

You, Me, Her: Season 4, Episode 10 “Who We Are...and Who We Aren't” (B-)

This has been a frustrating season, and this ending did little to make it all seem worthwhile. It feels like there’s always another ceremony that Jack, Emma, and Izzy need to conduct and which they stupidly do in front of other people so that one of them can air serious concerns that should definitely have been voiced in private. The issues that have been presenting themselves are nothing new, and the notion that Izzy isn’t ready to commit to a life in the suburbs has been a problem for such a long time. After a relatively grown-up and seemingly positive goodbye with Nathan, he had to go and show up at the house under the guise of getting her to come with him for professional reasons. She lashed out at him but still tanked the signing, which is going to be hard for them to get over in season five. At least everyone else seems to be in a good place, with Jack finally bonding in the way that he can with his brother and his mother, and Nina and Shaun are doing as well as can be expected given their sleep issues and handcuff mishaps. We even got to see everyone in the same room as the camera panned around and Gabriel got himself a kiss from Sasha, a plotline that hasn’t really been featured much in a while. Dave’s visit home wasn’t exactly perfect, but he and Carmen will be fine. I’m not sure that’s the same with this thruple, and I’m hoping there will be a bit more energy and creativity when this show returns for its fifth and final season.

Season grade: B
Season MVP: Greg Poehler as Jack
