As CBS’ Magnum P.I. closed out its fourth season — and with a renewal but to be formally introduced— may that very last second between Thomas and Juliet have been… “a kiss earlier than goodbye-ing”?
Friday’s finale opened with Higgins as soon as once more contemplating her emotions for Thomas, and the recommendation she had gotten Dr. Ogawa, earlier than marching over to Magnum’s within the morning to say her peace…. that’s, till she noticed Thomas’ ex-girlfriend, Lia, emerge from the bed room. Waylaid by the surprising awkwardness, Higgins tabled the subject at hand for a lot of the episode, as she and Magnum bought busy in one other manner, by serving to Gordo monitor down his kidnapped ex-wife and rescue her.
As soon as that dangerous enterprise was masterfully handled and Beth was saved — and after one other little bit of drama involving Suzy going into arrest after birthing her and Rick’s daughter (tl;dr everybody’s OK!) — Higgins retreated to an impossibly picturesque patio simply off of the hospital maternity ward. Magnum adopted, asking, “Why’d you permit?”
“I simply out of the blue bought a bit overwhelmed,” Juliet claimed, earlier than coming clear: “Truly, I’m mendacity, I’m not alright. There’s something else. Once I got here to speak to you immediately, it wasn’t about work. I needed to inform you one thing, then I noticed Lia there and couldn’t.”
However as Thomas defined prior, a tipsy Lia merely crashed in his bed room that evening (as a substitute of driving), whereas he slept on his sofa. It was all harmless. No spark rekindled.
“Now I do know that nothing occurred,” Juliet continued, “and I’ve to inform you, as a result of it’s simply going to hang-out me in any other case…. I’ve emotions for you. I’ve tried to disclaim it, and I simply can’t anymore.”
The admission was met by… silence and a curious smile, at first, leaving a barely embarrassed Higgins to quip, “I wager that is doing wonders in your ego.”
“No, it’s not that,” Thomas countered. He then defined, “Whenever you had been within the wine cellar yesterday, I needed to spend the day with you, as a result of I needed to say the identical factor…. I have emotions for you. I feel I’ve for some time, I simply didn’t understand it.”
From there, hearts on sleeves, the 2 did a little bit of a dance about the entire “I’d hate to lose our friendship!” factor.
“After all, I’ve my reservations…,” Juliet mentioned, half-heartedly.
“So do I, yeah,” nodded Thomas.
“I don’t wish to danger dropping our friendship, our partnership,” mentioned Higgins. “Perhaps we shouldn’t go there.”
“We most likely shouldn’t,” Magnum concurred.
However then their respective units of lips mentioned very in a different way, as Thomas pulled Juliet right into a lonnnnng, heat kiss. And within the wake of the wowza liplock… the display pale to black, the season over!
To be continued…?
Magnum‘s Season 4 numbers are “OK” — it ranks ninth in viewers and tenth within the demo out of the 14 dramas that CBS has aired this TV season. However collection lead Jay Hernandez simply weeks in the past advised, “We’re golden” on the subject of securing a Season 5. “I feel you can financial institution on that.”
“The numbers are nice, it travels effectively internationally…,” he defined. “So yeah, I feel we’re in good condition. And you already know what, [The Powers That Be are] pleased with the present. They beloved this season, quite a lot of the tales they had been actually digging. And the episode I directed, they beloved to the extent that I’ve already been requested to direct one other one subsequent season.”
But Hernandez additionally shared his opinion that any “Miggy” hook-up would come “on the finish of the present. Not the tip of the season, however the finish of the whole present. So, I don’t suppose it’s going to occur anytime quickly. I feel that rigidity and the dynamic between Higgins and Magnum is a giant a part of why the present works, and if you happen to take that away they usually turn into a pair, the present loses quite a bit.”
What do you suppose occurs subsequent? Grade the finale and Remark!
