Sammi and Beau close out the last chapter of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries with some real emotional highs and lows. As things start to stray into the dangerously cute zone for Lizzie and Darcy, news from home sends Lizzie rushing back, leaving all uncertain. Lydia gets a terrible shock and the Bennet Sisters rely on each other to cope and heal. Charlotte brings good news and Lizzie gets the best sort of birthday surprise. And in the end, the future looks very bright indeed.

A lot of big events happening in between a *whole lot of filler* in these episodes. Jane gets real, Lizzie screws up big time, and Darcy plays along.

In this whirlwind episode, Sammi and Beau are introduced to George Wickham, Catherine de Bourgh (and her little dog too), Fitz Williams, and finally, FINALLY the show introduces our William Darcy in the most dramatic possible way. Stay tuned at the end for a discussion on sexism from the literary fiction community, it's a real barn-burner.
