I just want to talk.
10 January 2013 | by (Jersey City) – See all my reviews

The tempest of C.J.'s life is winding down...or is it, as Santos offers her a job in the new administration? Does she want to slow down? Does she have any idea how? She keeps on saying and doing the wrong thing with Danny. He's patient and understanding, and their story arc becomes the most compelling part of the series' end. The producers could have done more with Charlie & Zoey, or Jed & Abbey, or Will & Kate, or Santos & Josh & Sam, or Toby's trial(s), or Annabeth & Charlie (sorry, my mind wandered there). Any of those might have been fascinating, but i daresay none would have topped C & C. Janney and Busfield can do no wrong. C.J. also has a scene with Toby that almost redeems the crappy season he's had. And she's offered the chance by a charismatic tycoon (Xander Berkeley - POISON IVY II, 24) to take ten billion dollars and fix the world. Brilliant dialogue, in the final episode written by Deborah Cahn.
