This episode really felt off to me, almost as if they canned the previous writing staff and this episode was penned by writers who had no real feel for the show. Even Gretchen's “Seriously, what is wrong with me?” at the end, fell flat, even though I'm sure it was intended as a serious cry for help or self-realization or something similar.

Jimmy trying to hook-up with an old childhood friend seemed to come out of nowhere and really didn't work for me, even as she took us back to tales of "Shitty Jimmy."

In some ways, now that I reflect on it, Gretchen's plaintive “Seriously, what is wrong with me?” could easily be the show itself wondering why it isn't clicking as well as it should.

I had mixed feelings about this one, as well, and "mixed" is already generous.
It doesn't seem to be just us, Alyssa Rosenberg wrote about her feelings about the last few episodes (and what may be wrong with them), as well.
