Nip/Tuck -- Season 5 Finale -- "Giselle Blaylock & Legend Chandler" -- 3/3/09

Nip/Tuck

Synopsis:

Spoiler:


Season 5 finale: While Christian and Liz prepare to wed, he also looks at a new way to battle cancer. Meanwhile, Ram Peters (John Schneider) trades in Kimber for a newer model (AnnaLynne McCord); Teddy tells Sean that she has lost someone close to her; and Sean and Christian repair a couple's strikingly similar neck wounds at McNamara/Troy.



After tonight, you all are going to be waiting a very very long time for season 6. It won't premiere until 2010!!

Looking forward to it, and I really wish they would combine the remaining episodes in one season to wrap it up next year, but that isn't going to happen.

Kind of a lame ending to a very good season.

The "Oh Shit" look on Christian's face at the end when the doc called him about the test results was good.

Pretty good episode. Nice twist at the end, but not totally unexpected. It'll be interesting to see how Christian and Liz interact next season.

Awesome ending. I'm sure Christian will be banging a stewardess on the plane. Whats Starbucks deal?

Totally knew how the season was going to end the minute we found out about Christian a few episodes ago (the reason the Doc gave was bs. just using numbers? c'mon).

Didn't feel like a proper season ender.
And why wouldn't Julia be at the wedding?
And for the record, I'd take Kimber over Eden any day of the week.

^ I'd take sandpaper on my nipples over both.

I felt really bad for Lizzy at the end. Not really an "Oh shit!" moment, but still good.

It's a miracle!

I was going to ask how long it would take Christian to bang an Italian babe once they get off the plane, but you're right.

I'm dreading another serial killer type storyline. They've been down that road, and it wasn't very good.

I too would take Kimber over Eden any day.

I think id take Eden, only because I feel like I catch VD everytime Kimber is on screen.

I was completely ready for Christian to become a vampire and I would have accepted it as completely normal in the nip/tuck universe. Maybe he did become a vampire and it cured his cancer.

too predictable for this show. don't understand the Teddy thing though. i mean it was an obvious ending all along, but good season overall.

The question that keeps nagging me: Why didn't Christian seek out a second opinion when told he had 6 months to live? Surely as a doctor, he would know to do this.

Which reminds me of my second nagging question from earlier in the season: Why was Sean looking at/working on Raj's smashed hand? He's a plastic surgeon, not an Orthopadaeic Specialist.

It think the answer to both your questions is 'Becuase it's a tv show'

As far as Raj goes, my guess is that they had to explain the injury and Raj's motivation to Sean. He patched the hand up in front of the dad, who may not have thought much of it.

I imagine Christian went to see the best cancer guy right off, and I also imagine doctors are more likely to trust other doctors than lay people are.

^ Agreed. She's dumb and the last thing this show needs is another psycho chick hooked up with Sean. No one attracts that many crazy women.

I should have seen the Christian thing coming a mile away. This show loves cop-outs.

Kimber getting kicked out of bed was hilarious. Eden is a such a bitch. I love it.

This ending sucked. FX will be lucky if anyone is still watching this show when it returns a year from now. In the real world, wouldn't Christian have a SIZABLE and substantially strong lawsuit against that doctor's practice? I mean "sorry our bad" doesn't really cover it in my book... not to mention the other family who lost someone because they were told she was in remission when she should have been battling with both fists. I mean seriously "whoopsie"?

Are you really trying to apply the real world to Nip/tuck? Have you not watched the show before this episode?

Of course I'll be watching when it returns next year.

I'm pretty sure a lot of people will be watching. It's one of their highest rated shows

I'll be watching. Sure you have to suspend your belief for some things, but it's good fun to watch. Sticking with it 'til the end.
