My review of the series finale of United States of Taracoming up just as soon as I own the world’s first combination strip club and pancake house…
Marshall and Kate have gotten a lot to do in the past few seasons (relative to the first), and they got to wrap things up with Tara is well. Marshall and Tara finally connect when Tara brings him to Lionel’s memorial. For all the things we can say about Tara as a person (jumping off the bridge was pretty dumb), this moment exemplifies her character, a woman who loves her kids and tries to do the right things, even when it’s not possible. Kate decides to stay home and take care of Marshall, but also gets to keep Evan. Charmaine and Neil agree to move to Houston, and Charmaine, in the cutest way, proposes to Neil. It’s mostly good news for the more axillary characters.
Tara confronted her abuser (or, at least, the version of him her mind created), [url=http://www.shopdvdmall.com.au/goods-1753-United+States+of+Tara+Seasons+1-3+DVD+Boxset-FREE+SHIPPING.html]United States of Tara Seasons 1 3[/url] and she defeated him. She came out the other side shaken but not broken, and with at least the core alters still around, if looking a bit worse for wear. Her family has figured out how to get along without her for the time being, with Charmaine and Neil getting engaged and taking Wheels to Houston, and with Kate staying in Overland Park not for the sake of the ill mother who’s been such a burden to her but for the little brother she adores.
In between those two big screams, though, the finale nailed most of its smaller moments, whether it was Max and Neil reminiscing about their dream for a strip club/pancake house — and Neil’s insistence at photographing Charmaine in lingerie, holding a short stack — or Tara and Charmaine descending on Kate’s boyfriend Evan or pretty much everything Keir Gilchrist did as Marshall. Gilchrist has been phenomenal this season, and his wounded-to-mostly accepting actions toward his mom in the finale hit exactly the right notes.
In the end, this season finale functioned as a [url=http://www.shopdvdmall.com.au]buy dvd online[/url] tight series finale as the family decided to accept each other for what they are. That includes Tara and her several alters. So, the three-season-long hunt that the family was on really wasn’t about finding a cure for Tara’s multiple personalities. It was about finding Tara or as Marshall called it, “the good parts.”
Ok, have you gotten a clear idea about United States of Tara? If yes, you must still watch it by yourself. Enjoy your time.
