‘Make It or Break It’ series finale preview: The path to the Olympics

The end is almost here.

We have to admit, seeing the series finale of “Make It or Break It” coming up Monday night is rather bittersweet. while it’s certainly nice that the show lasted for as long as it did, watching it go away before the Olympics — the event that we really have been waiting to see on the show since it began — is almost the equivalent of a parade being canceled before it travels two blocks.

With all of this in mind, there is still plenty worth watching during Monday night’s episode — from Lauren’s speedy post-surgery recovery to the continued aftermath of “smoothie-gate” to even the downfall of Kaylie following her breakup with Austin. Meanwhile, Payson is also going to put her spot on the team at risk thanks to her bold decision to change up her floor routine — which she is doing in hopes of securing a better spot. (Hey, everyone wants to feel valuable — though being on the Olympic team to us would seem to be valuable enough.)

Even though the show has never had the sort of following as “Pretty Little Liars” or “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” we hope that “MIOBI” is remembered for some of the ways in which it reflected as a show the traits of some of its characters — dedication, perseverance, and an underdog that always tried its best to make it to the top. It’s a shame that we won’t get to see the final payoff for these ladies’ journey — but it is better to have the journey than no journey at all.

How are you feeling now moving into the series finale?
