The final season of Longmire
The whole final season of Longmire was just so satisfying that the only time I wasn't smiling was when I realized it was over. I'm so thankful Netflix picked up this series and gave it a chance to go out on its own terms. The final season was easily my favorite of the entire series.
Kurt and Jane got married on Blindspot
Most shows drag the will they/won’t them on with their potential couples for far too long, but Blindspot isn’t one of them. At the beginning of Blindspot Season 3, we found out that Jane and Kurt had gotten married. Granted, things went sideways pretty quickly, but just knowing that these two people took a chance on love and one another made me smile. Will their marriage last? There are certainly plenty of obstacles in their way including a plethora of secrets and Jane’s evil brother, Roman, but having Kurt and Jane be in a committed relationship just raises the stakes and my hopes for their future.
Sharon and Flynn got married on Major Crimes
Commander Sharon Raydor and Lt. Andy Flynn got married on Major Crimes. Major Crimes is one of the best police procedurals for many reasons, challenging cases, entertaining characters, and a unit that really does feel like family. Nothing brought that last point home like watching everyone dress up to be a part of Sharon and Andy’s wedding party. Seeing Sharon walk down the aisle towards her friends and family was a truly joyful moment. The only thing that could have made me smile more was if we’d had more time at the wedding.
Bajie didn't die on Into the Badlands
In the wonderfully fantastic and exciting world of Into the Badlands, everyone has a surprising backstory and most have a peculiar resistance to dying. Bajie is perhaps the most unlikely survivor and in the closing moments of Season 2 when many characters were meeting with their ultimate reckoning, his demise seemed certain. Granted, it seemed that he had horseshoes in uncomfortable positions throughout the season but when he reappears in the stinger scene to open a whole new avenue of potential narrative in the season to come, it was a reassurance that anything is possible even in the Badlands.
Voight caring for Atwater on Chicago PD
Voight stopping by with beer and checking up on Atwater because he knew he was hurting after sending his siblings away made me smile. Regardless of how you feel about Sophia Bush leaving Chicago PD, the best thing that has come from it is the other characters have been fleshed out more. Atwater is finally getting the development he deserves, and Voight has more time to check in with other members of his team. It was such a sweet moment.
Sansa and Arya Stark beating Lord Baelish at his own game on Game of Thrones
Littlefinger's Machiavellian antics did add a lot to the show and made it more interesting, but it was satisfying to see him meet his end the way he did, getting a huge dose of karma courtesy of the Stark girls. The look on his face when he found out that HE was the one on trial at the end was priceless!
