In the last scene at the cemetery, the mischievous Gravelings knock over a statue from its pedestal next to George's headstone. As the show ends and the camera angle changes by zooming out from above, the statue is upright. See more »


George: The day I dropped out of college, I remember lying on my bed. My mother came into my room and she had been crying. She stared at me for a long time and then she said, 'You only have one shot at life, Georgia. This is no dress rehearsal,' and I said,'You know what, mom. Maybe I don't even want to be in the play.' Two months later I was killed. I wonder sometimes if someone was listening.

Unfortunate and cruel reference
22 May 2019 | by nmjoeSee all my reviews

Excellent character development and back to the witty dialogue that was present at the beginning of the season. This episode portrays many of the characters in a very touching manner and shows a deeper view of their personalities. Most of the episode is worthy of at least a nine, if not ten, out of ten star rating. One scene tainted the episode (and to some extent the entire show) so much, it dropped the score to a two.

When George finally gets the chance to talk to the young pet-reaper, he tells her that he died by being struck by a car. This is a clear reference to Rebecca Gayheart (who was removed from the series early in the season).

I understand the concept of dark-comedy and being irreverent in a comedic way, but this reference took it way too far. It was cruel to Ms. Gayheart and the child (and his family) that was killed in the accident. She was already removed from the show (presumably because of the incident), there was no reason to make this rude, cruel, and unnecessary reference.

If you are unaware of the incident, it is documented in Rebecca Gayheart's bio here on IMDB.
