What we do know, and Rebecca does too, is that she has the world at her fingertips. We just hope that she continues to tell her story with the world, even if we don't get to be a part of it week after week anymore.
In the fourth and final season of the series, which premiered last month, the delightful and quirky musical comedy goes even deeper in showing how Rebecca truly is a full person, and not just a series of zany cliches.
In its final hour, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend completely threw out the classic love triangle structure. It rejected the idea that our identities can be symbolized through our romantic choices. And it was so satisfying.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is a matryoshka doll of sharp storytelling; to watch it is to witness layer after complementary layer envelop one another, building to one of the warmest and funniest shows on network TV.
So while Rebecca choosing herself sends a powerful message that I'm sure will have many fans cheering, I still wish I could have seen Rebecca be fulfilled in every aspect of her life. Because she has earned that, no compromise necessary.
But then the meaning of that moment, of the chilling nature of Rachel's isolation, finally registers. It's so small, and perfect, and powerful, and quintessentially Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Ruefully funny. Heartbreakingly sad.
