Disappointments lead to a reunion, and "normality"
9 April 2007 | by (Lancaster, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

"The End" continues the storyline of "Fear," and it was originally going to be the final episode of "Absolutely Fabulous" (hence the title.) Saffy is living the college life with her friends Sarah and Caroline (final episode for Caroline Waldron), Patsy has gone to New York City for the new magazine job, and Edina has moved into a commune. Mrs. M. is in Edina's home, sipping champagne and using Edina's credit card to purchase items off a home shopping network. Patsy has a rough beginning at the magazine's office as she meets the rest of the staff (one staff member is played by comedienne Ruby Wax, who also plays a menopausal in "Menopause." Ruby is the script editor for "Absolutely Fabulous.") Magda (Kathy Burke) enters the office, which comes as some relief to Patsy. Patsy then runs into Marshall's ex-girlfriend, Bo, who is the nurse of an elderly gentleman. She wants to speak to the elderly man, who is the magazine's owner. Bo gets an idea when she finds out how rich the man is, and quickly whisks the man away in his wheelchair. They encounter each other again in Central Park as Bo is marrying the elderly man. The old man dies on the spot, but the vows were "exchanged" (this marriage is never mentioned in further episodes, and Bo would later return to the show reunited with Marshall.) Patsy muddles along and doesn't seem to be enjoying life in The Big Apple. Meanwhile, Edina finds modern commune life is not for her, and she isn't enjoying the people or the activities (one of the commune leaders is played by Mossie Smith, who can also be seen as a different character in the "Huntin', Shootin', And Fishin'" episode.) Saffy also seems to be having a difficult time with her change of life, and discovers campus life isn't always agreeable. Patsy finds some time away from it all on a skyscraper's rooftop. Suddenly, a helicopter rises along the side of the skyscraper. It's Edina looking for Patsy. Patsy is surprised, but also very happy to see her friend. They both return to London, and their bitter words are forgotten. Bubble is now Edina's servant, since Edina couldn't totally terminate Bubble due to contractual reasons. Mrs. M. has been released by the police on the charge of using Edina's credit card, and she's on parole. Saffy comes home and joins the group, but the happy reunion is short-lived when Edina starts to make demands of Saffy. Saffy explodes in anger, and the show's credits role. The final scene takes place twenty-five years later. Edina and Patsy are now senior citizens, but they're still smoking, drinking, and clubbing. Saffy is now the mother of two, and seems to be having difficulties with the children's father (of course this futuristic storyline wouldn't happen this way due to the introduction of the John character in series five.) Saffy now has the house and she tells Edina and Patsy they need to leave, because the children's father is coming for a visit. Elderly Edina and Patsy walk to their adjoining home with some hilarious events happening along the way. The excellent age transformation of Patsy and Edina can also be seen in "Menopause."
