30 Rock The Beginning of the End
5 October 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

After six years and know a seventh year we have got to say goodbye to our favourite NBC writer Liz Lemon and her band of misfits. No Liz does not have a baby but she is working on it with Chris. 30 Rock knows how to make fun of it's own network NBC when it comes to horrible the new fall shows are. After the opening credits Jenna comes in to make a fake marriage problem with dead doves. Then she asks Liz to be her Maid of Honor and when she try's to say no she is forced with pain to do it. Kenneth has a problem as he lives with Hazel and they have gotten to second base (Sharing a Yoghart) so he asks Tracey for help for relationship advice, so he tells him to treat Hazel as a queen. Jack is really coming up with such bad ideas to get in charge of Cabletown. Hazel invites Tracey to Dinner with Kenneth and it could go really wrong. Just when Kenneth finishes talking to Tracey Liz comes to ask for his advice to stop being the maid of honor. As she talks to Tracey she figures out that Jack is coming with all these bad ideas to get Hank to sell the network. Dinner time as Hazel try's to impress Tracey even dressing up in her best work to try be a more known actress. Then Liz takes a note from Jack's book and decides to Tank it by throwing her a surprise Liz Lemon party. Hazel asks Kenneth to leave to try use Tracy for her career. Then when Jenna's walks in on her horrible bacherlorette party and goes crazy over it. Then Hazel reveals her hidden plan and Tracey forces to tell Kenneth the truth. Liz then tells Jenna that she can be the maid of honor after she went crazy. Kenneth believes both Hazel and Kenneth so they will fight more. Liz then agrees to go with Jack's plan of sinking NBC into the ground. This was so funny and especially from Jane Krakowski my favourite unrewarded actress on this show. Also Kristen Schaal was once again funny. Nice return and I like the plot of Jack/Liz planning to take down NBC.

EPISODE GRADE: A- (MVP: Jane Krakowski)
