Thoughts on the Season Finale of Two Broke Girls

Updated on May 12, 2014

Max Graduates From High School!

I just finished watching the season finale of Two Broke Girls. I've been watching the show since the first season (it's hard to believe there have only been three; it seems like it's been on for so much longer than that!), but it's been going downhill lately (or maybe the concept just got old), so I honestly wasn't expecting much from this finale. I honestly thought that dumpster-living Deek, a character I actually quite enjoyed, would end up being the highlight of the third season. However, I was pretty pleased with what I did see tonight.

To make a long story short, Caroline finds out that Max dropped out of high school without graduating when she was a teenager, so she goes to Max's old school and talks to one of her old teachers. It turns out that Max just missed taking one history final, and if she shows up to take it, she can have her diploma. Max protests, but Caroline insists that she go give it a try, and she helps her study, of course. Max ends up passing with a B, and gets to walk across the stage in a cap and gown the next day. The night before, she calls her mother and requests her attendance, but unfortunately, her mother doesn't show up. This was quite a letdown for me, since I've been wondering what the mother looked like for quite awhile (saying this makes me feel like I'm writing about HIMYM...).

I kind of thought Max was going to run away when she looked out into the audience and didn't see her mother anywhere, but after her name was called a second time, she actually went onstage. I guess she didn't want to suffer the same fate as the "bro" she sat in the exam room with, who added some comic relief (and at one point, I admit that I wondered if Max would hook up with him), but didn't end up passing his final. As she stepped onto the stage, Earl, Sophie, Han, and Oleg suddenly burst into the gym. Caroline, feeling sorry that Max's mother hadn't shown up yet, had called them at the last minute and they'd travelled from all the way out of state for the event. As cynical as Max is, seeing her friends certainly brought a smile to her face.

While I'm miffed that I didn't get to see the mother, as I mentioned, there's a lesson in all of this. When you go through something important, the people who really care about you will make an effort to be there, no matter what it takes. Ideally, these would be your family members, but for a lot of people, that isn't the case. If your immediate family members aren't supportive, and don't seem to care about you at all, you need to make your own family, and that's just what Max did. Actually, Max and Caroline both did, since Caroline "lost" her dad to jail for the most part, even though I think she still sees him occasionally. I've always considered Max and Caroline somewhat of a family, but after this finale I think the supporting characters can definitely be added to that family circle as well. If Max could just stop making jokes about Han's size, everything would be perfect!

So, what's in store for next season? I honestly can't say. I wish they'd bring back Dumpster Deek, but I don't think that's going to happen. I don't think we'll see a return of the French pastry school teacher, either. However, I will make two guesses at what may happen. Max attempted pastry school, and through no fault of her own, didn't make it through. Now, she's graduated from high school. Logically, the next step after graduating from high school is university. Since Max has shown that she can function semi-well in a school setting, I think Caroline will encourage her to give it a try. I have no idea what she'd major in, human sexuality?

Perhaps a literary device like foreshadowing is too sophisticated for this show, but I think the writers could have been foreshadowing a possible introduction of Max's mother during Season Four. Maybe that's just wishful thinking on my part, but that'd be a great twist! She might get along with Sophie, or maybe she'd even end up falling for Han! (Okay, that's a bit of a stretch).

Anyway, that's all I have to say about the show for now. Leave a comment if you watched it, too!
