    Actually, that was the check for her film. Dylan did not need it anymore after extorting $3M from Helena in her sexual harassment suit.

    Sigh, I'm really going to miss Dana, she was one of my favorite characters (and very hot). I hope Erin Daniels goes on to bigger and better things. At least they didn't kill her off in some mysterious car crash like they did with Marina.

    Well, I can't say that I'm surprised with Shane, but that is still disappointing. She basically pinned all of her shortcommings on her bum of a father. She needs to realize that the way that she acts is because of how her father treated her, and has nothing to do with 'genes'. Time to start taking some responsibility for her own actions. I really thought she had turned a corner in the last 1 1/2 seasons, but this could send her into a downward spiral.

    Speaking of a downward spiral, I wish that Jenny and Moira/Max's relationship would end already. Its pretty obvious that they want different things, and they're just irritating each other (and me, for that matter).

    I love that Helena is getting cut off. I don't think she is a bad person (atleast, not as bad as last season), but she sure is spoiled rotten. Maybe living in the real world will knock some sense into her. Of course, perhaps none of the other girls will want to hang out with her if she isn't buying them expensive gifts and jetting them around the world in her private plane...

    $10 says that when the next season starts, we'll learn that Bette has spent some time behind bars for kidnapping Angelica...

    I'm hoping that come next season, Jenny is with that foreign chick and has dumped Max.

    Just checking in to say this is one of my guilty pleasures.

    Shane's father just meeting her and then stealing $10,000 to leave his wife in a weeks time seems a stretch.

    and bette stealing the baby didn't really seem her style but I will give them that one.

    When does next season start??? :D

    Yeah I didn't realize it was the finale until I watched Alice announcing it before the show. Carmen was smokin' in that wedding dress, she's really beautiful.

    BTW, I don't quite get having only one thread for the whole season of The L Word. I think there are many "closested" TCF members watching this show. :D

    That is a good idea, however my real point was that I believe there are many people on this forum that watch this show but just don't admit it, hence the smallish thread for a whole season.

    Most of my red blooded hetero male friends love it, it's like skin-a-max with good stories and good acting. But I also find the alternate lifestyle angle fascinating and I've had a few discussions about the lesbian lifestyle with REAL lesbians. Half say it's a joke, half love it.

    I agree. Seeing her in that dress was the first time I had noticed just how beautiful she is.

    I just watched the first episode of NBC's new show Teachers, and Sarah Shahi, the girl who plays Carmen is a regular.

    Your...
    Season finale, wth??? I was shocked when I heard Alice saying that. It feels like this season JUST started.

    I had heard spoilers earlier saying that people had seen some filiming up in BC and that someone was getting married. The speculation was that it was going to be Bette and Tina. Well we know how THAT'S going. At this rate it's more realistic of Tina marrying Henry!!!! :(

    I was soooo rooting for Shane up until the big dump. Damn her, but then again, it should have been expected.

    Kit pregnant? OMG, it was sooo funny.

    Bette: Are you sure? You know this things aren't always accurate.

    Kit: Yes. (Camera pans over to counter with about 20 home pregnancy tests). :D Kit has really grown on me this past season.

    As for Jenny and Max, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm liking Max way more than Jenny. Max is certainly playing the male role and is going with it, I don't know what Jenny wants to get out of it. At first I thought the foreign chick was Patricia Arquette, I figured she was up there for Shane's wedding.

    And yes, Carmen looked beaaauuutiful. I liked the set up of the wedding under that tarp, heaters, and blankets. I was surprised that Carmen was in a strapless dress but you couldn't tell SHE was cold! ;)

    given the fact that pam grier is a few years older than me, (and i'm 56) i doubt she is really preggors in real life. actually, kit has grown on me after 3 seasons.

    i use to like this show much better in season 1, although, i thought the lesbian stereotypes were dead on. last year was horrible and this one went downhill in a hurry. truthfully, i only watch now to enjoy naked women. i seriously doubt i will watch next season.

    I finally got a chance to watch this last night. Helena did indeed need a wake up call. I knew the 'heiress' was going to be Helena's mom.

    I think Shane left because she felt it was inevitable that she'd turn into her dad. Which is wrong, but she doesn't have any faith in herself. I wonder if Carmen will realize that is what motivated Shane to back out.

    Bette is screwed. I wonder how long she is going to drive around Canada with Angelica.

    Kit pregnant will be cute. It happens. Angus was wonderful about the whole thing. I like them.

    Max is realizing that he is going to lose Jenny once he completes his transformation. Max always wanted to be normal, and becoming a man makes sense to someone attracted to women - if you're going for "normal". It's all about being seen as the same instead of embracing your differences. Jenny embraces her differences, not caring what others think. Max can't do that. We'll see if he goes through the surgery.

    I don't see Jenny embracing her differences so much as she just wants to be different and rebel against the norm. She seems to have a lot of anger against "normal" couples and relationships, which doesn't fit with just embracing and loving herself. Jenny is by far my least favorite character on this show. Someone said they had heard that Jenny was supposed to be the main character (which I believe at least in the begining). They really need to get away from that. Personally, I think they could leave her out of the show completely and it would only make things better.

    BTW what is up with her hanging out with the foreign chick and Max? That seemed pretty cruel. If she breaks up with Max, fine whatever. But she didn't break up, and now she's bringing her new lover to hang out with them? That's just wrong.
