To every intense TV fan, the series finale is a truly bittersweet moment. You're sad to see your favorite show go, but it's time. You're anticipating so much. The characters and the plot need to work out exactly as you hoped or you'll be disappointed. Even if it's not exactly what you needs to be close.
But there are some TV finales out there that are just WTF. Totally confusing, totally unsatisfying, leaving all fans shouting "I WAITED SEVEN SEASONS FOR THIS?!"

How I Met Your Mother

How could they toss away the mother's character like that?? The show's title alone sets up fans to want a relationship with the mother, and then we barely get to know her. Disappointing.


I sort of thought Dexter would die at the end of all of this, and honestly, that seems like a pretty appropriate ending based on the seven seasons. But no...he's just living in a cabin somewhere lumberjacking it up? Nah, I don't buy it.

Gossip Girl

Dan is Gossip Girl, are you kidding?!? Plot wise, it makes sense I guess, but I will never understand that decision. Also...why is no one pissed at him for it?? Serena even marries him knowing all the crap he put her through as Gossip Girl. It's all very confusing.


So everyone's dead? But they're together in heaven? Is that it? Lost remained true to all the seasons and confused the crap out of me with the season finale. At least Vincent was in it, he was always my favorite character anyways.

I think of each of these shows a little less fondly because of their totally unsatisfying finales. @gavriella @rodiziketan @nicolejb @danidee and all the other Vingle TV fans out there, which TV finale is most disappointing for you?

@shannonl5 I've never seen Firefly but heard amazing things! It's one of those shows that everyone always says got cancelled way too soon! I'll have to check it out, even though it sounds like it left you a little disappointed :(
@LauraFisher it was a really interesting concept! And I love Gina Torres so I'll watch anything she's in. I think there were things they could have done better for sure. And I think it was a little presumptuous to assume there would be time in the second season to wrap up all the storylines
Smallville's finale was pretty disappointing
@hanskapend yeah it was. It felt like there was a lot of buildup and then... it just never paid off I guess
HIMYM ruined a perfectly good couple just so the main character could be happy. I understand why they killed off the mom because if you think about it he's telling his kids this story because they never got to know her but he always wanted them to know how much he had to change in order to be ready for the one aka her.
