Fans Slam 'Girls' Last Episode: 'Worst Finale Ever'
The following contains spoielrs for the very last episode of 'Girls', proceed with caution!
Fans said goodbye to the beloved 'Girls' series in the U.S. last night, taking to Twitter to air their feelings about the controversial final episode.
WARNING: Spoilers Ahead
The HBO hit, created and directed by Lena Dunham went out with what some are calling more of a 'fizzle' than a 'bang' and fans were quick to Tweet their anger.
It ended like this: For Hannah Horvath (Dunham), life as a new mum (to baby boy, Grover) saw her heading to Upstate New York to foster a career in "Internet Writing" with Marnie offering to join her. Only, in true 'Girls' style, this situation goes to shit when Hannah has trouble getting baby Grover to breastfeed which creates friction between the pair. Hannah's mother joins the bickering before Hannah removes herself from the situation, later returning to find her baby finally takes to her and credits roll. This was a look into future Hannah and Marnie. Earlier in the episode, the four friends decided to part ways, ending their "toxic" relationship.
Although true to the show's style, fans were underwhelmed by this ending, the Twitterverse was p*ssed:
Well, #GirlsHBO ended with a whimper, not a bang. It just goes to show that new babies always, always ruin TV shows.

Girls finale: why is no one addressing the trauma of this poor brown kid going around the rest of his life being called "Grover Horvath"?

I have watched the Girls finale and I'm going to pretend the penultimate episode was the last one because I liked it much better.

Well, okay. So I’m just going to pretend that last week’s episode was the actual series finale. #GirlsHBO

Despite all this backlash though, some found the season finale an appropriate way to finish a show reverred for it's raw and honest take on life in your 20's.
Everyone wants a finale to be a happy ending. A closing. What #GirlsHBO did, was show real life. Which is what that show was from the start.
