It’s official: Liza (Sutton Foster) lyricsAZLyrics.com You have made your choice – something like that. In the series finale of TVLand turned into Paramount + drama, Liza and Charles (Peter hermann) quickly realized that their reunion would not be a long-term relationship. While in bed, after promising to always be honest with each other, they realize that they may not be able to keep that promise, and she asks, “We won’t make it, will we?” When he replies that they are not, they hug, apparently for the last time.
So what went wrong?
“Liza’s relationship with Charles was based so much on their projecting to each other,” creator Darren star He said TVLine. “They hadn’t been together authentically for very long, and when it came time to push at the end, they realized they weren’t right for each other. More importantly, he was never going to get over this lie he told at the beginning of the series. The lie had consequences. It gave him a career, but it cost him personal relationships. “
Despite their separation, Charles asked Liza to take over Empirical while he was not writing at Yaddo. So, he went from assistant to running the company over the course of five seasons. While celebrating his success, he dated the girls. When he was going to the bar for another round, he flapped his shoe to try to get the bartender’s attention, just like he did in the show pilot.

His answer said it all: “Really? Because you know what, I’ve been there by your side the whole time. “

“They have always had each other in their lives, and the journey continues,” Star told TVLine. “I think of all the paths her story and her life could take, and we wanted to leave her open to all possibilities. For me, there was something elegant about closing the circle in his story. “
