What I’m Watching: Breeders (Season Finale)

Breeders: Season 3, Episode 10 “No More Part Two” (B+)

There’s no better way to resolve - or at least postpone - a major, potentially life-changing conversation than an emergency or tragedy interrupting it. Ava opting to go see Grace before she went to check on her grandfather could have had devastating consequences, and she did blame herself briefly before it turned out that he was going to be fine. Jackie realizing that she needed to take care of Jim was likely influenced by the fact that it wasn’t just confusion that caused him to take all of those pills at once. Ava came to a great conclusion after talking to Grace and Susie, and it’s very true that she may be able to do much more going to a school whose reputation isn’t as stellar as the one she could have gone to since she’ll be able to stand out more. I love that, after giving Luke an ultimatum, Jacob confessed that he knew he was being unreasonable, and offered a typically mature snack of chocolate liqueurs. If he does end up with Ruby, it’s going to be awkward, but being friends with her at least sounds like a good start. Darren being forced to sit through Ally and Paul’s fight was unfortunate for him, especially since he’s considering dating Gabby, which isn’t necessarily the best idea. But what Paul said about there not being a point to them being together isn’t going away, and ending with them unsure of what to do next was a powerful way to close out the season. I truly hope there will be more of this show coming soon - this season was superb.

Season grade: A-
Season MVP: Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard
