GRΣΣK: The Final Episode

by The Girl

The series finale of Greek aired this past Monday on ABC Family and I seriously almost cried at least ten times. Man, I am going to miss the kids at Cyprus-Rhodes University.

This was the fourth season of Greek, which I think surprised everyone. That an ABC Family show could last that long & be pretty much great throughout its entirety. (It had its ups & downs, but what show doesn’t?) Here are a few examples of other shows that lasted four seasons:

  • The OC
  • Everwood
  • Battlestar Galactica
  • Felicity
  • Heroes (well, it kind of ended…?)
  • Ugly Betty
  • Ed

Pretty good company, yeah?

ABC Family recently announced that it will be opening up an additional night of original programming. Made possible by all the successful Pretty Little Liars & Secret Life of the American Teenagers. But Greek was really the show that kicked off the “new kind of family”‘s promising foray into original series television.

Here’s a quick look back (in pictures) at the series finale of Greek:

The last time we will hear that lovely little opening.

Hilarious times in the KT house. Anthony Hopkins yelling “spoiler alert!” to the Star Wars reference was hilarious:

Some great schemes that brought together our favorite KTs (Beaver, Heath, Cappie, Rusty) & non-KTs (Calvin, Ashleigh, Dale, Rebecca) to save the Kappa Tau house:

We got some classic Rusty-Cappie talks:

And some old familiar faces:

And of course there was the saddest moment.ever. The tearing down of the KT house:

One last Cartwright pow-wow on the ZBZ stairs:

A final goodbye with the gang as Casey & Cappie leave Cyprus-Rhodes. (Dale kissing Casey & the reactions was one of the funniest things in the episode)

I don’t know about you, but I’m going to miss all the plays on Evan’s name each week from Cappie. Going to Dobler’s every single night. Dale pushing up his glasses. Omega Chi/Kappa Tau duels. Fighting to be the number one house on campus. Rebecca being crazy. Casey & Ashleigh’s Laguna Beach/Hills references. Nicknames. Rush. Nationals always getting in the way. Katherine Parker. Rusty nerding out. And ALL the rest. It’s been fun, Greek!
