My niece teared up and wouldn't even tell me the end. She said she would end up crying.


I just don't see why people think I'm too patronizing (that means I treat them as if they were stupid.)

Yes, from our 16 year old who doesn't watch it much at all!

We haven't seen it in awhile but my kids (now 15 and 12) used to really like it. I did too. I sort of had a crush on Spencer!

I didn't watch it because I totally forgot (I'm sure they'll replay it eventually and I'll make sure to catch it then!) but even my boyfriend, who started out complaining that it should have ended a couple years ago, told me the end was "sad, but good".

*i* was the one who was welling up!!

DD (almost 9) said she ALMOST did but she made herself "think of something happy" - we were snuggled up together watching it so she could not see the slight beginnings of my waterworks!

We had 3 cryers here - my 15 yr old, me and my hubby ...My DD didn't watch the last season or two as faithfully as the first 5 seasons, but she's probably seen them all on repeats. She also has DVD's of several seasons that are well worn. I love that my DD is sensitive to goodbyes, she is a tender hearted sweet girl. And the show was kinda sad!!

I was the one tearing up in our house. It was such a cute show and one I never worried about letting DS watch. And I, too, had a bit of crush on Spencer. LOL

DS did ask why it had to be over and why they canceled it. I tried explaining about how the kids were getting older and moving on to other jobs.

Dirty little freaks!

Can someone spoil it for me? I don't have it in me to watch - feeling kinda cried out already this week.

Mostly it's just a silly message board. Except when it isn't.

This is NSBR. Peace is not important to us. We LIKE drama. We seek it out. We create it if need be.

I read this thread earlier and thought it was too bad we missed it. About an hour later, my DD (14) comes down from her room sniffling and tells me she just watched the last episode of iCarly. She told me what happened and it sounded like a good ending to me.

Carly ends up moving with her Air Force father to Italy, leaving Spencer, Freddie and Sam in Seattle. Thus ending their webshow iCarly.

Sam(Jeanette McCurdy) will have her own spin-off show with Cat(Ariana Grande)from Victorious(which is also ending after 3 seasons)! Gibby is also getting a spin-off show.

It was funny, even though they have all grown so much, Gibby was the one who seemed to have changed the most. Freddy has grown, but he still looks/sounds like Freddy

It was a cute show. I bought DD one of the sound effect machines for her stocking one year and I think we ended up donating it to Goodwill, but may it will turn up in her room today when we break out the shovel ...

We missed it

My son went thru a phase where he watched it all the time (he is almost 15) and I am pretty sure that is why he picked the name Carly for our chocolate lab. She is 2.5 years old.

Will miss it!

We didn't get teary because daughter kept talking about the sweepstakes and how much it would mean to her to have a piece of the set (kind of like me with Ugly Betty - I wanted the orange office furniture).

But I did wish that Spencer ended up w a reward for giving up his (SPOILER)chance with the girlfriend. Yep, I had a crush too. He is hilarious.

I also wished we finally met "Socko"

We are Gibby people too. "Give me Giberty and justice for all"
Gibtastic, etc. are a few of things we say around home.

Also, can't say "Happy Birthday" w/o saying it like Guppy I think is his name.

The ending, although perdictable was handled better than most and well done.

Gosh, I didn't even know it was still on. My 13 year old dd used to watch it all the time. I haven't seen it in ages though. I'll have to ask her if she still watches and if she saw the finale. I do see it's on demand, so I may need to check it out. It was a very cute show.

I felt it just because its the passage of time. The shows my kids watched on Disney and Nick have all ended - Hannah Montana, Wizards, iCarly.

I thought it was lame - and no Neville?

A great twist would have been for Neville to pop in for a goodbye - and be sweet - and hot

We watched it and both agreed it was ok. I was hung up on the fact they switched Carly's dad from Navy to Air Force.

Thank you! I'm glad I wasn't the only person sitting there thinking "Didn't they say her father was on submarine for most of the show?"

I'm sappy enough that I got a little sad during the goodbye scene with Carly and Spencer.

I teared up. Totally. It was the one show that I really could sit and watch with my DD's. tho I tought the whole episode was not good in and if itself. The acting was not up to par.
The whole navy/air force thing was really annoying. And Sam driving the motorcycle? She isn't 18 and she doesn't have her motorcycle license. Nit picky, I know. But it bugged me and my DDs.

But it was still touching. I will miss spencer most of all.

Thank you - I would have been teary and was expecting to be except for the craptastic episode - just really didn't do it justice and was as if someone who had never written for or watched the shoe was picked to write the last one.

I loved and watched nearly every - missing maybe one or two from this season - seeing every episode at least 3 or four times at minimum - was very sad but expected it to end as the kids got older - was very disappointed in the last one and feel like I want a do-over - maybe we can all as fans imagine an episode that's more fitting - ?! Haha -! Kind of like fan fiction 2 peas style -

I also did some tearing up especially when they flashed back to some of the first episodes. I feel like these kids grew up along with my 13 year old.

DD did tell me they are making a new episode of Wizards of Waverley Place.. anyone hear about this?

I remember them saying her dad was in the Air Force, never the Navy, and I always wondered why an AF person was stationed on a sub.

I did some searching and found this...
The Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex (2013) (TV)

The Russo family and friends are headed to Tuscany, Italy, to meet their long lost relatives... but when Alex tries to prove she's more than a seemingly carefree young Wizard, she inadvertently conjures a spell that creates a Good Alex and an Evil Alex. When Evil Alex gets roped into a charming young wizard's foreboding plan to take over the world, Good Alex must find a way to save her family and humankind, which leads to a monumental battle between the two versions of herself - all atop the Tower of Pisa. Written by Disney

Alex vs. Alex

So it really looks like another movie.

I got a little teary myself! I've seen so many episodes, I felt like a little chapter in our family life with kids was ending. It was a cute episode. I was glad for Freddy that he finally got a big kiss from Carly! *The only thing that bugged me was that Spencer magically got well in a couple of hours after being SO sick, ha!

Omg, I was crying like a baby! My son had years in his eyes, too, but he would never admit it. We used to watch all the new episodes together and are so sad that its over now.

Was it ever mentioned what happened to or where Carly's mom was?

It is never mentioned but many assume she is dead. I read one time the show's creator was asked where Carly's mom was and he said I don't know.

They are showing the final episode again today.

Ours were crying last night when they watched it! I was in the other room reading and came in to both DD and her BFF sobbing! They said it was super sad. I haven't watch it, which is probably a good thing. I cry at the drop of a hat here lately.

I was ready to tear up because of the various tween shows my kids annoy me with, this one was ever so slightly less annoying.

If this means more Suite Life on Deck reruns in my house, I really am going to cry.

They should have ended it with Carly being awakened from a dream by Drake and Josh, who call her Megan.
