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

    How can a wonderfully entertaining sitcom like Reba be cancelled and a disgusting crap show like two and half men go on and on and on…..

  2. Mary says

    Any news about this show? Any spin-offs? I so wanted to see Reba get a life, get a man and some dating. This great woman and mother deserved it. I can’t understand how a series that had so many situations left to explore could be cancelled. I miss Reba, bring it back. This year a lot of the new series were crap and what do networks do? They cancel a good show! unbelievable…

    I love Reba.. Please, another network pick it up. CW, you are crazy to give this show up. It was one of your best shows.

    I am glad that Lifetime is playing the re-runs, but it isn’t the same. Reba is a great way to de-stress from my work day and its the first show that my husband and I could honestly enjoy together. He really cracks up at all the jokes. My son who is 17 finds it hilarious and alot of the lessons that are taught/learned on the show he relates to. Up til this day we haven’t found any show that meets are standards like “Reba”. LIFETIME pick them up permanently. Don’t just run their reruns.

    for once a show that touches everyone and they take it off. i wanted reba to find someone. this was one of the great shows that got away.

    I can’t believe that anyone would cancel such a great show. My husband, who never watches ANY Lifetime shows, gets hysterical everytime he walks in and I’m watching REBA. He loves Barbara Jean, who doesn’t? My favoriate character is Van, but then I say “Oh, actually, I love Cheyenne too. Actually, I love ALL the characters. They all fit together perfectly. I have DVD Box Seasons 1,2,3,4 and thought I’d have a lot more. Someone better pick up this show & keep it rolling, because it keeps the views rolling everytime!!!

    The Reba Show is a bright highlight in my week. It’s a different kind of show–not one that you see all over the place on the other channels–very watchable and leaves you wanting more. Let’s have some more!!

  8. Trish says

    This is the best show ever. Reba shows us time and time again how family sticks together and everything happens for a reason. I feel this show has a lot of story left in it, like Reba happily ever after. Any smart network would surely renew this beloved show!

  9. Sammie Smith says

    I cant believe they would even consider taking this great show off the air what is the matter with you people at the cw I cant stand what they have done Reba is my favorite tv 30 minutes anytime I love all the characters Surely some smarter channel will take the Reba show and show cw how dumb they are…..I love you Reba

    I love REBA! I never watched a single show until about 6 months ago when I,along with my sister and my niece started watching the DVDs..
    We started with the first episode and just completed the 3rd season. Season number 4 will start next week!
    On the nights we reserve for our “REBA NIGHT”, we know we’ll be enjoying and laughing with what may possibly be the best sitcom EVER!
    All the actors/characters are fabulous! But I am very impressed with the character, BJ! Melissa Peterman is a gem!
    That woman needs to be on TV..
    What a marvelous comedian..

    why would they want to cancel this great show!?? i love it n i love reba’s music. this is probably the best family show ive ever seen.

  12. Kristina says

    I can’t believe you canceled this show. It is one of the few shows my dad watches. I now its gone. Surely, one of the real networks that can actually afford a real show can pick it up. The charactors are to classic and there are too many more stories left for them to cancel it.

  13. Laura says

    What are you guys doing? I have been watching several of your family shows and now it seems like your cancelling all the good ones. After the end of Gilmore Girls and 7th Heaven, there won’t be anymore good quality family shows. I have no reason to watch the new CW network. I am a Canadian and our votes or say don’t usually count for much but I hope this time you will listen and bring back some of these good quality shows. I would be willing to sign a petition if anyone has one going to stop some of the shows from being cancelled. Just put in the subject column CW shows. My e-mail address is
