Last week’s episode of Happy Endings hinted at a possible romance between Dave (Zachary Knighton) and Penny (Casey Wilson), so how did the twist pan out in this week’s episode? By making Dave and Penny brother and sister! Wait, what??? Where is Erica Kane and when did this become All My Children? Ok let’s rewind here and recap.
Being Erica had a pretty strong comeback with its second last episode of the season. Yes viewers, thanks to my trusty PVR descriptors – I scrolled ahead to next week and saw that indeed episode 11, titled “Dr. Erica” is our series finale (sniff).

If you’re able to put the anticipation aside and enjoy this episode as a standalone, it really is a pretty solid one.
