As an episode that is supposed to make the viewer want come back when the next season premieres, "Lost in Translation" is average. As a final episode of a series - not that it was *intended* to be one - it's just as disastrous as The City as a whole was.

In an earlier episode Erin noted that Olivia has friends in high places. That is the only possible explanation for why she was allowed to keep her job at Elle despite her consistent failings on every level. That is the only possible explanation for why Joe acted as if he had no knowledge of the true nature of the events where he was not present but were documented in the series and therefore must have become known to him. That is the only possible explanation for why Joe did nothing to Olivia despite her lies to him and her mistakes being aired on TV. It's just atrocious.

For Whitney's part it's a shame the show was canceled just as some drama had entered her life. Unlike Olivia, Whitney had to face consequences for her actions, even those not of malicious intent (Olivia had nothing but malicious intent) and/or of just plain bad luck. I'm betting many viewers felt sympathy for Whitney, who comes off as a really sweet person, whereas most people would gladly see Olivia vanish from the face of the Earth. One can only hope that Whitney succeeds and Olivia fails in the future after this schizophrenic series where Whitney's sections were clearly truly documentary and Olivia's sections were some twisted fairytale controlled by The Powers That Be. If there is a lesson here, it is that only power matters. Great job, MTV.
