Phillip Semenko has got Diane to pose for him, despite Sam forbidding her to do so. Phillip is having troubles with the painting, not knowing why, but he comes to the conclusion that Diane has lost the anguish that was making the expression of the portrait so brilliant. In their discussing Sam, Diane confesses that their relationship is a troubled one, where they are two opposites, and she gets the feeling that Sam often likes to hurt her, which Sam had admitted to others in the past. That discussion was enough to bring back her anguish, and Phillip can finish the painting. Diane loves it and thinks that Sam will as well. Regardless of Sam's feeling about the painting itself, Phillip tells Diane that Sam will not be able to get over the fact that she went behind his back and the painting will be the impetus for the last time Sam and Diane will ever see each other. To make up for their previous fight, Sam makes what he believes in a grand gesture to Diane. But when Sam finds out about ... Written by Huggo

I'll Be Seeing You: Part 2 (#2.22)
9 May 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Diane works on her portrait with the artist Phillip Semenko. When they are done she is excited to show it to Sam but Phillip warns her that their relationship will be over after this. When she brings the painting to the bar her and Sam have a big fight. At the end she leaves the bar and says he will never see her again.

What a nice and dramatic way to end the season. The whole fighting scenes were very well done, choreographed and acted out. There were not too many jokes that stick in one's head but it is great with having a dramatic effect for people who had to wait until the next season to see what will happen with Diane and Sam. I just wish we would get to see the painting as it is supposed to be so good!
