The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel may have started set in the 1950s, but the story took viewers all the way into 2005 for the show’s final moments as Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) and Susie (Alex Borstein) bid viewers farewell.
After teasing a rift between the pair earlier in the season, viewers discovered that their falling out stemmed from Susie’s ties to the mob and how that ultimately led to Joel’s (Michael Zegen) imprisonment. Years later, Midge sends a message to Susie during her roast where the manager asks for Midge’s number.
Overall, though, this was a series of no obstacles, about a privileged woman who constantly failed upward and whose entitlement was never checked. The more interesting character was Susie, although the show never stopped to promote her.
In other words: “Great gowns, beautiful gowns.”
