state of Felicity:
She and Ben are lying on his bed talking. Felicity explains
that Professor Karns allowed her to graduate by failing her
on the paper but letting her pass the class. In discussing
the end of the college, Ben tells Felicity that he's been
doing a lot of thinking. He doesn't want their relationship
to be just a "college thing" and asks Felicity if
she's ever thought about marrying him. Despite her shock,
he proposes and Felicity doesn't know what to say, but her
answer is more a yes than a no.
up with Ben:
In the middle of the night Ben gets a call from Lauren's sister
saying they are in Philadelphia and Lauren has gone into labor.
Felicity tells him to go, she'll stay in New York. He asks
if they are engaged and Felicity says yes, they are. When
he arrives home from Philadelphia he tells Felicity that the
baby boy is fine and his name is Andrew, after Ben's father.
Felicity has lunch with her parents before graduation and,
along with the strain of their impending divorce, her father
proceeded to find fault with all of her future plans. He
comments that she's followed Ben for four years, isn't it
about time she stopped? Getting defensive, Felicity tells
her parents that she and Ben are engaged. Richard lets slip
to Dr. Porter that Ben is a brand new father and is moving
to Arizona. Dr. Porter can't accept this and harsh words
are exchanged all around. Felicity tells Ben she can't go
to Arizona, that she's been following him around for too
long and now it's his turn.
up with Noel and Sean:
Mr. Webb comes by their office and reports the loss of the
CGG account. Most companies are cutting back due to the economic
climate and unfortunately, with the loss of the account that
brought them in, he has to let Noel and Sean go. Unsure of
what they'll do next, they make a pact: they are a team and
they'll stick together. Later on, Sean comes by and tells
Noel that he took a job with Meghan's dad following some elevator
expert around. He says that Noel should take the job he was
offered that didn't include Sean. It looks like the partnership
is put on permanent hiatus but Noel rents expensive office
space and tells Sean they're still in business and will make
it no matter what it takes.
up with Palo Alto:
After graduation, Felicity tells Ben that as much as she
loves him, she can't go to Arizona but she understand why
he must go. They spend one more night together and say a
tearful goodbye. Felicity packs up all of her things and
says goodbye to all of her friends and New York.
does it all end:
Flash forward six months. We hear Felicity's tape to Ben
while we watch her in school again in Palo Alto. She's decided
to become a doctor -- her parents couldn't be happier --
but this time she's doing it because she wants to. Felicity
has kept in touch with everyone in New York. Noel and Sean's
business is doing well and they're happy. Meghan wants to
become a psychiatrist. She asks Ben to call or write or
send a tape, she'd love to hear his voice. Felicity is coming
out of class one day and Ben walks up behind her. He says
that he was just at the registrar's office, signing up for
classes. Lauren is going to move up to Palo Alto. He says
it really was his turn.
