That was sad, but kinda fitting. The ending does surprise.

I kinda hope they get back together in season two, but who knows.

Finished watching the series this morning, loved it overall, not entirely feeling the ending. I see that people in the AV Club comment thread said that there are mentions in earlier episodes about the idea of going to Italy, but on first watch it seemed like it was mostly there just to get Dev on a plane, in order to subvert the rom-com trope of the big romantic gesture by revealing that it wasn't a plane to Tokyo. Rachel going to Japan also seemed to be kind of out of left field - I know they did have her say earlier that it was something she'd wanted to do, but, for someone to just pick up and move to another country with no job or language skills just felt like such an 'only on TV' thing that it pulled me out of the moment. (I mean, Japan is expensive. What would you live on? Wouldn't there be visa issues?)

But, still, overall, that was a terrific season and I look forward to more someday.

When Dev and Rachel got together, I remember thinking to myself, "they better not do a Girls thing and break up in the finale because they need end-of-season tension". Oh well, that's me disappointed then. That's not to say that I find the break-up unrealistic or anything, I just saw it coming right away, was hoping the show would make a different choice, and am not thrilled by this one. Eh.

I thought it was clever how they used the tacos analogy for how we "shop" for the perfect person and then end up alone. It's not the subtlest thing ever, but also not clocking you over the head, which is in keeping with this show's general assumption that us viewers are at least a little smart.

Well in Girls they had to split up because Adam Driver is a Sith Lord.
