7 December 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Liz comes into work singing about getting married to Chris. Jenna finds out and reveals she was about to have a surprise wedding. Liz then gets news she won an award for 80 women under 80 who are not Betty White. Jack tells Liz her mother is coming to visit for Christmas. Jack has his on plan for dealing with his mother this year. Kenneth is sad Hazel broke up with and was fired by Liz. He tries to be mean but never can. Liz then tells Jenna she won an award which makes Jenna mad as well. Jenna then agrees to go with her but has a secret revenge plan she sings to us. Jack has new plans but his mother calls him with her usual problems. Jack thinks his mother is faking it but it turns out that she may have been telling the truth. Jenna and Liz go to the event and Liz sees Jenna is planning a revenge plan. She then strikes up a conversation with Gale who does not talk about Oprah because she hears everything. Jack goes to visit his mother and sees that she actually injured herself. She does not want help but just wants to go through the pain. Tracy, Florence and Kenneth get trapped in the elevator due to Tracy. Jenna and Liz fight at the banquet because Liz calls her selfish. Liz uses her ways and gets the place lit so Jenna cannot go up on stage. Jack and his mom go on a carriage ride where she tells him his final words also saying she will be gone soon. Liz goes up for her reward and Jenna interrupts it trying to ruin the event. Liz then pulls out more tricks making Jenna run out of the room. Liz finds out Colleen died leaving her last words that she was not proud of him because he disappointed her. Jenna and Liz make up agreeing not to fight much anymore. Kenneth finally excepts that he does not need television. Jack makes his speech at his mothers funeral, declaring it to be the best of all time. Over the length of it he makes everyone cry, laugh also including Kermit the Frog. Liz then sees Jenna is planning to get married at the funeral. Everyone seems OK with the wedding happening and it does. Jenna and Paul get married with everyone feeling weird still around them. Funny episode and I'm sad Colleen is finished with the show forever. Alec was very funny to. Jane was the best thing as usual.
