Californication Finale Reaction

I know I’m not girly. I know I’m not sweet. I know I’m not what most people think of when they think of how girlfriends act.

But fuck me if Californication isn’t a testament to my softer side. Because I just keep waiting for something to go right for Hank and Karen. And it keeps breaking my heart. This season more than any other.

I’d call that a textbook hopeless romantic.

It might also indicate an inability to let things go, an interest in bad boys, stubbornness, masochism, and a tendency to overlook major character flaws.

Until next season, guys…

  1. You’re totally right – there’s something about the dynamic between Hank and Karen that means they’re going to be together…eventually. Although that cliffhanger finale might put a spanner in the works, right?

    Did you like how Batesy broke the news to Karen that he wanted a divorce?

    I LOVED that Bates ran off with a bottle of booze after he told her. But Karen not caring at all? That didn’t seem right. I would have been a little pissed, if I were her. Even just for a minute. But the relief/joy that she showed was adorable.

    And damn that season closer! Seriously, why couldn’t it have ended on a note where Karen isn’t getting hurt, again. It always ends like that–it kills me.

    • I can write off Karen being relieved because she’s become emotionally close to Hank a few times this season. And she was upset about Batesy’s extended bender and the fact that he was another out-of-control guy who couldn’t put her first.

      I’m dying to know how next year will begin.

        Agreed. I’m not thrilled with the way the season ended (Although I’m totally on board with your post about the possible Marcy/Charlie reunion! Eeek! Love it!), I cannot wait for the next season. Oh Californication, you tease me so.

  3. I thought the season had its moments, but everything seemed rushed in the end, like they just decided on the direction they were going to go in the last two episodes.

      It did happen pretty quickly. And with the way the second-to-last episode ended, the good parts of the last episode didn’t seem fathomable. Normally, if Hank had fucked up like that, Karen and Becca would have taken a lot longer to come around. That, and a few other things in this season, seemed to be treated pretty inconsistently.
