It’s the final countdown.
Season 7 had a lot of mediocre episodes, a lot of good ones, and a couple outstanding episodes. I don’t know if it’s the fact that I’ve watched so much of The Golden Girls that it’s lulled me into a happy place or if it was actually that good, but here are the scores:
Season 7’s Distribution of Bea Scores
1 Bea: 0 episodes
2 Beas: 0 episodes
3 Beas: 7 episodes
4 Beas: 7 episodes
5 Beas: 7 episodes
Golden Bea: 2 episodes
On average, that’s 4.17 Beas per episode, the highest of any season!
The MVP race looked so close that at some points, I thought it was going to be a 2- or 3-way tie. But in the end, one Girl reigned supreme:
Sophia Petrillo, the one and only. And a well-deserved third win it was, too.
I guess that about wraps things up here on the unofficial The Golden Girls episode guide. It has served its purpose, which was to keep me entertained and to document and rate each episode thoroughly, and to get “The Final Countdown” stuck in someone’s head by the beginning of this post. I was going to say that I hope it helps someone, but I don’t really know how it would do that. Please remember the lessons you have learned from the Girls, and boycott Empty Nest*.
