In the shocking series finale of Saving Hope, following a mass casualty accident involving a bus full of teenagers, Dr. Alex Reid and Dr. Charlie Harris rush to the scene to try and save the kids while waiting for backup to arrive. The Hope Zion Hospital family must band together to overcome the tragedy, and move on to the next chapter of their lives.
The article in the media section, interview with Michael, reveals a bit how this ending came about. Michael and Erica pushed against a happily-ever-after ending and one that stayed true to the supernatural and hopeful aspects of the show.
"If Saving Hope meant anything over the years it was about the possibility of the after and we wanted to extend that hope to our main characters. So basically if anyone wants to blame anyone for that ending blame me."
If I would change anything it would actually be to the rest of the season...another breakup weakened the payoff just a wee bit. But the last few episodes made a very powerful ending. Not what many would call a happy ending but I agree with Michael that it just seemed very fitting and true to what Saving Hope has been saying the whole time.
i guess so, but still doesn't mean i have to like it
I was so sad, I actually cried....a lot. At first I didn’t like what was happening, but when Charlie got to see the kids and that Alex still had her tied ring on her finger, it was sweet and the ending was sweeter and appropriate. I loved all the hearts on the sand.
I also love that so many characters left for other futures prior to the ending. We were invested in all the characters. I also thought bringing Charlie’s best friend back and having him be there for the organ donation was great.
