I love this show!! It has it all! I didn't start watching till about halfway through the season so I know there are many out there who could have missed this show but would have loved it! Please give it another chance! I'm obsessed with Jacklyn, engrossed with Kat and Adena, cheering for Sutton and Jane in love and in life.
Excellent finale! If I they don't bring this show back it will be a HUGE miss. TBT has the potential to run as long as Sex and The City, IMO.
The writers did an outstanding job of capturing the vulnerability and strength of being a survivor of sexual abuse. This was a perspective I have not seen portrayed before and it was spot on. The injustices we experience sometimes leave us feeling more victimized than the assault itself. Agreed, you will never feel "normal" again because from that moment on you are changed, the "normal" you knew dies. Unfortunately, for some survivors, like myself, you waste a lifetime chasing the old you, the old "normal". So for me, I found the message to make peace with yourself, very profound. It is in finding acceptance in our new normal we gain power. This is a lesson I wish I had learned 30 yrs ago.
The message that was repeated in the finale...even though we live with tech advantages, we cannot truly live our lives through devices. We need to unplug, be present and "show up" .
The finale lends to a plethora of possibilities for the characters in Season 2 and beyond.
As Jane confidently walks out of the building but not without passing Jacqueline (her future self) in their power red outfits...I was waiting for Jane to toss her hat in the air. So very Mary Tyler Moore.
I predict that Jane maintains a relationship with Jacqueline, realizes she belongs at Scarlet and returns. I see them all going on separate paths only to realize how much they all need Scarlet but with an appreciation for where they are in their lives/careers and learning to slow down and enjoy the process.
We need a second season of this excellent show! love the stories...the cast....the clothes...it has it all!!!!!!!
