It is not only Christopher Nolan whose narration sometimes bounces over the viewer’s head. Various movies and TV series have made their path in the game. With that said, these are some of the TV series finales that went over a lot of viewers’ heads –

The Nanny


When Sheffield, in The Nanny, prepares to leave the house for one last time, Fran holds her makeup bag. It is the same bag that Sheffield brought to the house to sell makeup.

BoJack Horseman


In the first episode of BoJack Horseman, Diane and BoJack undergo a conversation on the roof where Diane offers to write his memoir. During that scene, BoJack says, by referring that she might get sick of him, that “I don’t think that’s going to happen.” But in the finale episode, he tells Diane that, “Wouldn’t it be funny if this was the last time we ever talked to each other?” As a result, Diane gets quiet, making it clear that she doesn’t want them together anymore.



In the pilot episode of Veep, Selina wished to talk about the scandal news but Mike stopped her. He did it because he knew that if Tom Hanks died, her scandal news will get overshadowed by the event.  In the final episode, there is footage of Selina’s presidential funeral. As a result, she received all the attention she wanted. But apparently, Tom Hanks died, which overshadowed her funeral.



In the season finale, George and Jerry were having the same conversation they had in the very first episode of the series. The pilot episode began with Jerry talking about a button on a shirt and it was the same discussion the duo had in the finale as well.

The Vampire Diaries


In the season finale, Demon greets Stefan as “Hello, brother!”. This was a nod to when the duo confronted in the very first episode.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend


At the end of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s pilot episode, Paula and Rebecca hold each other’s hands and sings “West Covina.” They celebrated the goal of getting Josh and Rebecca back together. Apparently, in the final episode, Paula sings the reprise version of the same song, but this time, she sang it to remind Rebecca what she needed to pursue; music instead of Josh.

Good Wife


In the pilot episode of Good Wife, Alicia slapped her husband after he used her for the sake of PR and his recent scandal. Apparently, in the season finale, Alicia did the same things and got slapped by a co-worker she used for the exact same PR purposes.

Once Upon a Time


In the season finale of Once Upon a Time, Emma visits the coronation late and says, “Sorry. I am late.” It was a callback to Regina echoing the same thing in the first episode when she crashed Prince Charming and Snow White’s wedding.
