Warning: This post contains spoiler for the series series Friday Night Crazy Ex-Girlfriend .
After four seasons of romantic mishaps, Rebecca Bunch follows her heart … onto the stage of an open night in a bar in West Covina.
Friday The crazy ex-girlfriend was opened on Valentine's Day (natch), and Rebecca dreamed of what her life would look like if she got Greg, Nathaniel, or Josh. In each vision, Rebecca finally got the same "empty, sad look" on her face. When the real Rebecca wanted to know why she was not happy, the dream said Rebecca told her, "The problem is you do not know who you are." Rebecca turned to Paula and asked her to express her frustration in a "1
But this time, Paula asked her where she was. At that moment, she thought about it, and Rebecca confessed: she imagines musical life in great moments of life, even putting Paula into her alternative Paula told her that it was really beautiful, she even encouraged Rebecca to write down her songs to find out who she is, so Rebecca dismissed all three guys and focused on her new love – music – playing the piano and One year later, she invited all her friends to this open-mic night to hear her sing for the first time. "I came to this city to find love and it did, "she told the crowd (including Josh, who has a new girlfriend) before she sat down at the piano. "This is a song I wrote," she explained shortly before we went black.
After Rebecca's "I choose" moment, we had many questions, so we turned to executive producer Aline Brosh McKenna, who co-wrote and directed the finale starring Rachel Bloom. Read on to find out which guy would have been the best partner for Rebecca if she chose 19459005 … and if we could expect the musical Crazy Ex-Girlfriend to be musical. 19659006] The closing scene was planned from the beginning of the series.
"I cleaned up my office and found the notebook, Rachel, and I took it to the pitches, and" This is a song I wrote "was always there … Not all details were clarified. But the last thing she would say, and where she would end, and that she had an ideal romantic opportunity, but to find that other thing, [was always in there]. It has always been a search for identity because she is someone who tries on these other disguises. Therefore, the primary goal has always been to find out what her passion is and what she must pursue and what she loves and what she wants to do with her life.
The finale is a rejection of the romanticist comedy idea of finding "the one."
"What we wanted to do with the boys is to show that they are all very viable and that you will meet many people with whom you could have good relationships. There is no "one". The thing we talked about a lot was trying to break down the idea that there is a person that there is a puzzle piece. I think that is a very harmful idea for the people. The fact is, if you make good decisions for yourself and know who you are, you will meet many great people and then choose the one that will coincide with you in terms of values and values. Timing. "
" I think the idea that it's fate and there's a happy ending and there's a kiss and then you're done, it's not good news for women or men … I do not like such things Cinderella where she sees him from the other side of the room and is suddenly in love. I think most of us are not pretty enough for that, thank God. I think those physical moments are the worst and are the ones that get the most out of them. I always felt like in Cinderella like, "You have not talked to her. They do not know anything about them. "
But Rebecca's decision does not mean that she may not end up with one of these three guys in the future.
"Yes, maybe! Once you have clarified your situation, it is a question of who is where and how it works. That's why we show you some of the other singles she has met in the series World in which she meets Nathaniel in two years and that works. Or who knows what happens to Josh? That's not the point somehow. "
Indeed, Greg might be best suited to Rebecca's three of them.
" She spends most of her time explaining to Greg what happens, and that's because of her date The end of [Episode 16] was probably the most grounded, and she felt she owed him a little more explanation. And he is the one who is the most worried. Nathaniel knows it's coming and knows the barn and the ring are not what she wants, which is why Greg gets a bit more explanation than the other guys. [But] She left none of them behind for the others.
And yes, even the show's authors had their own (strong) opinions on who Rebecca should end with.
"A hundred percent. In any case, people in the writers' room decided on different things at different times, and so did Rachel. The actors who play these three guys are competitive, which is funny. I think we've really brought Josh to a great place, from a complete cipher like it was just a project for her to a start, to a guy who works really hard to understand himself, and he's really one long way. They have all come a long way, as they did. She is a kind of pebble in the pond. The echo of her journey of self-discovery has influenced all three of these men in different ways. "
They have consciously decided that Rebecca should wait a year to share her music.
I do not want her to say, 'Oh, I want to do this thing, and now I am I finished. & # 39; We wanted to show that she actually spent a year doing this thing that she's not so inborn talented in. What's another very important topic for us: She loves this thing and it is something she secretly wanted to do, but she'll be terribly involved for a while … you can see she's probably better at some things than other things, but when she's going to write songs, she has to learn how to sing confidently, which apparently still works on it, so [we’re] that too with any romantic magic, so we needed that leap in time. "
The" 11 o'clock Number "of the final it was a crucial turning point for Rebecca …
"That came from Rachel, who wanted to make a song that, so to speak, summed up her experience, and the identity issue came up just as we were working on the episode. This idea of all the different selves that Rebecca had manifested so clearly in the songs and costumes. The 11 o'clock number is the height of frustration … It's like a last-minute panic number. It's a big number, but more and more resolution will come. When we wrote it, we actually had it back in the script, but then we postponed it earlier, so you could see what their topic was, "What do I do with it all?"
… and it was crucial that Paula was the one to help her see it.
"This scene we wrote, and we really cried: This scene in the end, when Paula says, 'That's what you should do. That's not stupid. "The circle literally closes with the pilot's scene, and Paula is on the show for me. Paula is the one in the beginning who says, "You should be with Josh." She is the ultimate shipper. She needs that. She hates Greg. She has really engaged with Rebecca and her personal life because she has her own unfulfilled romantic desires. So she pushes her and pushes her, and then she should come and be the one who says, "No, you should do that. That's not stupid. That is sensible and special. You loved writing this song, and here's a pen. "I think that gives her whole romance a reason to be." A Crazy Ex-Girlfriend stage musical might come soon … but not so soon.
"Honestly, we made the finals and we did a concert special and a documentary that is crazy. Yes, Rachel and I did not have more than five minutes of entertainment about the musical. The musical Mean Girls came out, I think, fifteen years after the movie. It's good. You will see it when you see it.
