The Million Dollar Listing New York Finale is apparently going to be a sad one. I was planning on recapping it this weeken but I am functioning about 20% right now and just haven’t had the time to watch it. I wasn’t really worried about being spoiled because really, what can someone say to spoil a finale on a real estate show? They lost a listing? They got a big commission? Ryan wore another stupid costume? And yet somehow it happened. So I’m probably not going to do a full recap on this. I’m just going to watch it and give you a place to talk about how it all ends. If you have not been spoiled already, I suggest you watch the episode before reading this recap. Or not. But at least you have the choice I was not afforded. It’s one of the hazards of blogging I don’t enjoy.
I’m not sure how I feel about Ryan. I am the youngest in my family but if I had an annoying, obnoxious younger brother I would probably have felt something similar to the way I feel about Ryan. He is definitely my least favorite of the realtors on this show. And yet, I can’t really dislike him. Oh snap, I just realized I’m the Ryan of my family. On the bright side, it looks like Ryan is the only one for a potential of a feel good storyline for this show.
“I’m emotionally unprepared for this moment…” say Ryan when Luis is kind to him about his Open House. It seems Luis, too, is unable to stay mad at Ryan. When he invites Luis to his wedding, it’s a sweet moment. Ryan buys his dream car and wears the wood sunglasses I fell in love with watching Tour Group. I’m still bitter that we will never get another Tour Group.
Wow I didn’t see that coming. Ryan gets a wedding spin off this fall? It actually looks really good!
I’m just going to sit here and sob through this scene with Fredrik and Derrick. I can’t see to type. Talk amongst yourselves.
Fredrik and Ryan haven’t spoken in a year! And yet he shows up at Fredrik’s very important open house. Ryan took a major listing from Fredrik and then trashed him about it on social media. Fredrik admits to retaliating and he accuses Ryan of buying Instagram followers and likes. Something a lot of housewives do. Especially that one idiot that took me to court. She has 2K in like within minutes of posting. Then flatline. Funny how that happens. Unlike the housewives, this very calm but brutal back and forth seems very real to me. And yet they manage to open up and explain their insecurities and pain and hug it out.
I love the mansion in Connecticut. Fredrik agrees to keep trying for a child. He’s dying for a little girl.
If Luis really wants to marry a woman, he has his best option right there in front of him with his assistant. She is smart, beautiful, she knows the business inside and out and she has a clear affection for him. What is stopping this from happening? (this is a rhetorical question. Don’t answer that.)
Luis meets with Ronita to tell her something big. I am trying so very hard not to get my hopes up. But it’s not working. Oh Roni, I sense your pain. The big news is he doesn’t want to do real estate anymore? So you are not finally going to have a relationship, you are essentially losing your job? I agree, Ronita. This is bullshit. Your boss is breaking up with you. Maybe he will take her with him? Maybe they will ride off into the sunset. Shut up. I want this to happen, dammit. I always want impossible things. Roni basically tells him he is bipolar. That cracked me up for some reason. Then Luis asks her if he has ever let her down. She says no, while she is crying as he lets her down. He will come through! I am still hoping for the ring. I said shut up! I really want this. I understand the obstacle. Let us not discuss it!
Fuck. So he gives Ronita the Toll Brothers deal. Which is great. Gay men can be very generous. Dammit. Dammit all to hell. Sorry, Ronita. But I hope this means you replace Luis on MDLNY. You deserve it.
Luis is so very happy. And that is what matters.
