It’s been 6 days.
Watching the very last episode of Parenthood was hard (emotionally). It was almost as bad as watching the Gilmore Girls finale.
After almost five years, we bid the Bravermans farewell. My only comfort, after all they’ve been through, was getting a peek into their futures, and they all looked pretty bright.
Zeek & Camille
While I was already expecting Zeek’s clock to run out, it wasn’t any easier when Camille walked in to find him. Cue the sobs. Zeek and Camille have made me want to have four children just so I can watch my family grow exponentially.
In the beginning, Sarah seemed like the main character to me. Obviously, the focus has shifted throughout the series, but Lauren Graham was the (obvious) reason I even started to watch Parenthood. She was, to me, the show’s anchor. We watched her recover from her rocky life in Fresno, and go through her super awkward engagement with Mark. It was so nice to see her find herself marry someone who was a good companion to her, a full 180 from season 1 Sarah.
Wait — Amber’s new guy is George Tucker? Did he leave Bluebell?
All jokes aside, Amber’s been through some crap. I was holding out hope that Ryan would get his act together and swoop in to show Amber he could be everything she needed and more, but I suppose I can settle for an active father figure in their child’s life.
Adam and Kristina
After everything, especially the cancer, I’m so happy this family found their place. I don’t think any storyline has tugged on my heartstrings quite like theirs did. Despite all their hardships, they’ve never been afraid to jump in with both feet — while holding each other’s hands. I was relieved to know both of them would be doing something they loved… and still making money.
Crosby and Jasmine
Crosby gets to keep doing what he loves. Awesome. But why did it take so long for him to realize he could do it without Adam?
Joel and Julia
Hold up — rewind — did you see? No, not the puppy.
Not only did the Grahams adopt Victor’s sister, but they had another baby! They are the new Zeek and Camille with their four children. Hey, NBC, I’m down for a spin-off in a few years.
I’m going to miss the Bravermans, but I was relieved nothing unexpectedly tragic happened in the finale. We were able to see each family member have a positive future.
What do you love most about being a private tutor?
I love teaching, and I find it to be so effective when I get to work one-on-one with my students! As a private tutor, I get to know my students’ families, see their homes and offer instruction where they are most comfortable and relaxed. I currently tutor elementary school and high school, and it’s so much fun!
If you’re binge-watching a TV show, what are you watching and what are you snacking on?
Downton Abbey. I can’t get enough of the drama! And I’m probably munching on the best grilled cheese sandwich ever, or perhaps some homemade granola bars.
If you could live anywhere, where would you live?
Paris or the Central Coast in California. Paris is the epitome of food, culture, gorgeous architecture and lovely outdoor spaces. The Central Coast– primarily Big Sur— is so beautiful that sometimes I cry when I’m there.
