The latest episode of The Carrie Diaries was all about the holiday blues. Unfortunately "Endgame" wasn't just disastrous for Carrie and company, but also for the audience.

That is, until the final five minutes when the doorbell rang and a certain someone was waiting on the other side. To this I shouted at my television: "Oh Thank God!" So why was Carrie's Thanksgiving such a letdown?

Everything about the holiday episode felt authentic. The old school recipe cards are exactly what my mom had, the ugly 80s apron, the disgusting act of gutting the turkey, and, of course, the stress. Don't get me wrong, holiday episodes of television can be fantastic. Take any of Gossip Girl's Thanksgivings or The Oc's Chrismukkahs. It just felt like this installment of The Carrie Diaries was injected with tryptophan.
