We did it!  We did it, Joe!!  Gold stars for those who get that reference!

After covering 83 episodes of Queer As Folk, Ken and E’Shel pause for a deep breath and a dance break (over a phone call).  Season and series finale episodes are in the works, but it seems only right to have a moment to stand under the raining glitter while the thumpa thumpa pulses.    This is just a little tease and a little reassurance that the diner is still open!

We are tackling Part Two of the Queer As Folk series finale in this episode.  Ted gets his birthday wish.  Emmett finds love on the slopes.  Hunter gets a new name.  Beautiful things are happening here!!  Bittersweet things are happening too.  As the gang moves forward, Ken and E’Shel start unpacking the last few scenes.  A Part 3 is definitely possible. WE ARE NOT DONE YET!!!!

We are tackling the Series Finale of Queer As Folk in bite-sized pieces.  In this episode, Michael gets to be the face of everything he has championed, but no longer seems onboard with the mantra of the Land of The Clones.  Ted gets a closeup on a different side of Tad.  Melanie and Lindsay are packing boxes and leaving some (unsolicited) advice for their friends.  Justin, Michael, Lindsay, Ken, and E’Shel are getting a little worried about Brian.  The thumpa thumpa continues on the next episode!

It was only fair to make Ken watch the finale on his own, and then to immediately force him to verbalize his thoughts and emotions into a microphone.  We felt like it was important for him to unload and record his initial response before we did a deep dive into 5×13.  So here’s Ken – uncensored! E’Shel tried her best to be quiet. The official episode(s) for 5×13 are coming soon!

There’s a VERY IMPORTANT announcement at the beginning of this episode!  After that, E’Shel shares her conversation with Harris Allan aka Hunter.  They talk about his introduction to the set and the cast, some behind the scenes details, and what’s currently going on in Harris’ world.  There are 15 missing minutes where they just trade music recommendations.

Follow Harris Allan on all the socials and check out his music on your favorite streaming platform!

The Taylor-Kinney nuptials are a go!  Brian and Justin send out their official announcements and the gang has opinions.  Emmett and Drew have to sort out their age difference.  Ted thinks he’s found Mr. Right, and Melanie and Lindsay are planning a big move.

This is NOT a recap episode.  The truth is, we are just stalling so we can sit with the beautiful parts of 5×10 and 5×11 a little longer.  In this episode, we both get VERY distracted, a little defensive about our faves, and a tad shady about a certain character.  Whoops!  Anyway, enjoy these stall tactics.  No need to rush to the finale!

This episode brings us the aftermath of the bombing and shows us its far reaching effects.  We check in on Michael’s status at the hospital and see Emmett struggle with his shock.  Ted buries himself in guilt and work.  Zen Ben is forced to contradict his own stance on responding to violence and hatred.  Melanie and Lindsay realize what they could have lost in the bombing, and consider what they could still lose to politics.  BRIAN DOES THE MOST!!! IN THE BEST WAY POSSIBLE!!!  Ken and E’Shel ascended to the heavens while watching this episode and are slowing making the descent back to Earth.

We don’t even know where to start.  This episode was heartbreaking and heartfelt and sobering and beautiful.  There are really not enough words to cover it all.  Everyone is dealing with the decisions they’ve made over the last few episodes, but convictions and priorities are shifted in an instant.  Don’t worry, this episode isn’t JUST tears and heavy sighing – it wouldn’t be LDD without some laughter and nonsense!  Expect the emotions and commentary to be all over the place.  Also, we feel compelled to say be good to yourselves and to each other.  We are probably still crying.

CONTENT WARNING: This episode deals with the tragedy left in the wake of a hate-crime committed at an LGBTQ+ event.  Please skip this one if you need to.
