What I’m Watching: The L Word: Generation Q (Season Finale)

The L Word: Generation Q: Season 3, Episode 10 “Looking Ahead” (B+)

When a show ends a season without already being renewed, it’s always best to consider it like a series finale just in case there’s no more. In many ways, this would be fitting, since Bette and Tina successfully got married even after getting locked in a freezer and Alice apologized to Tasha, which hardly foretells a happily ever after but shows some signs of growth. Sophie and Pippa may be embarking on a new relationship, though they’re just about the only ones with good news. Tess drove away with a drug dealer and now might be dead, Shane is back to her old ways, and Dani started making out with Roxy only to see Dre show up and wonder what was going on. Micah and Maribel’s future as parents also looking uncertain, and the hapless Hendricks didn’t think it was worth mentioning to his girlfriend that he was moving to New York before showing up to her mothers’ wedding. Gigi got a passing mention as now being engaged to Nat, though I have a feeling we won’t see either of them again, and Carrie and Misty were nowhere to be found for obvious reasons since Carrie is far too recent an ex, even for this show. This season has been entertaining and a real rollercoaster, and I do think there’s plenty more territory to explore which I hope will be covered in a fourth season and beyond. There are more than enough characters and surely more couple combinations that have yet to be tried.

Season grade: B+
Season MVP: Jordan Hull as Angie
