Reba: The Hart Family Says Goodbye, part 2

The series finale of RebaOn Sunday, February 18, 2007, CW broadcast the last two episodes of Reba The Reba series finale was the 125th episode of the series and was entitled “The Kids are Alright.” Here’s the conclusion of what happened.

After Brock (Christopher Rich) leaves, Barbara Jean (Melissa Peterman) comes back downstairs and is miffed that Van (Steve Howey) and Cheyenne (Joanna Garcia) won’t give her an interview. Reba (Reba McEntire) tells BJ that she thinks her moving to Arkansas is a bit selfish. BJ is incredulous and can’t believe that she’s being faulted for wanting something for herself. Reba tells her how much Brock has changed and BJ replies that he hasn’t. She knows Brock wants things to go back to the way they were, when the world revolved solely around him. Reba says that BJ wants the world to revolve around her. BJ tells Reba that it’s not her problem and Reba says, “I believe that every marriage that can be saved, should be saved. Mine couldn’t but yours still has a chance.” BJ leaves saying that she has to go give her notice to the news station so that they can find someone else to do the weather.

A bit later, in the Hart home, Van thanks Reba for letting them stay with her and comments that he needs to change his smoky shirt. Kyra (Scarlett Pomers) comments that the washing machine’s broken and asks if he has brought his magic butter knife. The two mock each other and Kyra leaves. Cheyenne and Van tell Reba that they believe they need to live there permanently, that they’re obviously not capable of living on their own. Reba surprises them by saying “no.” They can’t believe it but Reba reassures them that they can handle whatever mess they get into, as long as they stick together.

A little later, we see the couple moving back to their home. Reba’s not quite ready for it, knowing that it’s for good this time, but believes it’s for the best. The three are all hugging when Brock enters. Reba asks him if he’s heard anything from BJ and Brock says that he’ll know her decision by watching her broadcast. If there’s a new girl doing the weather then he’ll know that she took the Arkansas job. They turn on the TV and the news anchor begins the show by wishing BJ well in her new job. Brock is crushed and Van, Cheyenne and Reba are all stunned.

BJ enters and Reba tells her that she just can’t believe that BJ’s throwing away her marriage. Reba then says that she can’t let her best friend ruin her life. They’re all shocked that Reba said that BJ was her best friend but Reba admits that it’s true. Reba expects BJ to go crazy but she doesn’t, saying that strangely enough, after all this time, it doesn’t feel like a big deal. Reba’s in shock but BJ bursts out that she was kidding because that’s what best friends do. She screams and gives Reba a big hug.

Brock interrupts the hugging and honestly tells BJ that, if moving to Little Rock would make her happy, then that’s what he wants her to do. He wants her to be happy because he truly loves her. If she’ll have him, he will go with her, wherever she wants to go. He concludes by telling BJ that, without her, there is a hole where his heart used to be. BJ is moved and says that it’s the most beautiful thing she’s ever heard. Brock gives Reba an “I told you so” look. Brock and BJ embrace and BJ tells everyone that she’s not leaving after all. To keep her, the station offered her a serious news job. She says she couldn’t leave Brock and says “every marriage that can be saved, should be.”

Reba says that she is truly happy for both the couples, that things have turned out so well. She says that, “six years ago, I thought I was cursed. But I’m not. I’m blessed. I have the craziest, most dysfunctional, most wonderful life I could imagine. And I love all of you.”

They’re very moved and Van suggests that they take a picture to remember the special moment forever. As he grabs the camera, Reba calls for Kyra and Jake (Mitch Holleman) to come join in. BJ points out that she wants to stand next to her best friend and says, “can you believe it Reba? Six years ago, this family was falling apart and then I came in and I just put everything back together.”

Brock says that’s not exactly how he’d put it but Reba shushes him saying, “Barbra Jean’s right. We got through it all. We’re survivors.” They all smile as the familiar theme music rises and the camera flashes. We see the lovely group photo which fades into the wedding photo from Cheyenne and Van’s wedding. End of series.

There have been rumors that Lifetime or another cable station might want to renew the series or develop a spin-off starring Van and Cheyenne. Unfortunately, there’s no concrete information about these possibilities but we’ll keep you posted. Stay tuned! TV Series Finale home page

I didn’t start watching Reba until the middle of the fifth season. I loved it! My brother even loves it, and he hates sitcoms! We have all the seasons except the first. Why was it cancelled, I don’t know. We should’ve at least got a full season! I really do hope it comes back because it was hilarious.

I really enjoyed the series, the dysfunctional family dynamics and the heart of the series. My only gripe was how, all too often, we saw Cheyenne become the center of attention, while Kyra and Jake got sidelined. Anytime Cheyenne flubbed or hurt someone it was pooh poohed off, but everyone else had to make amends it seemed.

Should the powers that be make series focusing on Van and Cheyenne, I will not tune in to watch. While I enjoyed Van going from silly kid to semi responsible and caring adult, I don’t care to watch Cheyenne turning it into the me-me-me show. That is one character I have had enough of.

I watch your re-runs nightly. I am so addicted to them! I never saw the show before it was cancelled. I hope that someday there is a spin-off. You would have so many fans. Such a great show with great actors!

I love this show!
Me and my family are stationed over seas and this show aways made us feel a little closer to home. My husband and I also got married young so we could relate to a lot of it. I have to say thew we are truly truly going to miss this show. And I beg that another network will pick this show back up with ALL the original cast members!!!!!!!!!!!!

CW- I DON’T KNOW IF YOU ALL FELL DOWN AND SMACKED YOUR HEAD BUT YOU SHOULD HAVE NEVER CANCELED THIS SHOW!!!!

I wish that Reba didn’t go off because it was the best family show ever! I know that every show has to end but i wish the last show wouldn’t leave me with so many questions.

Reba was the best show ever, it is clean and makes me laugh. Barbarba Jean is a Hoot! What a great story line, a ex-wife, ex-husband and his mistress making a top notch show. It is sooooo great, I really hope to see it revived for the millions of fans.

I can’t believe that REBA has been cancelled! This was the best show ever! Every character was perfect for their roles. The show combined good old family humor and was suitable for the whole family. I can’t stand watching shows where someone has to eat live cockroaches and cow dung! C’mon people, get with the program and give the people what they want!! MORE REBA!!!!

How can Reba be Cancelled? It is the only show on TV that most families in todays era can relate to. This show portrays images of the family unit in todays society. We can take almost each show and relate it to our everyday life. I feel as this is the only show that most families today can relate to and keeps us from deeming our own family in a negative way. REBA takes a little piece of all of us. I truly think that another network needs to pick this series up and expand on it. Have an amazing come back and make the show even better. 7th Heaven cancelled the TV series and than put it back for another season. I feel this would only be right for this show.
