‘UnREAL’ finale review: Did Adam Cromwell get married; what happened with Rachel?

UnREAL -After a short but thoroughly enjoyable season, Lifetime ended “UnREAL” on Monday night with an event that was billed as one of the craziest things that we’ve seen yet. Who would have thought we would have a public shaming, a proposal, and a runaway bride all within the span of a single episode?

Let’s start with the first real shocker of the night: There was no Royal Wedding. Adam did pick Anna and proposed to her at the end of the hour, she did not decide to marry her. We imagine that Rachel may have had a thing to do with this. This came after Adam bailed on their plans to run away together, which was for the most part the results yet again of Quinn’s interference. She told Adam about her history with mental health issues, and this caused him to balk.

Of course, this was all made so much worse by Jeremy learning the truth about Rachel and Adam, and decided to humiliate her in front of the entire crew right after the proposal.

We do wish that there were a few moments throughout this season 1 finale for character moments, mostly because there was so much happening at almost every second. Still, we found this to be a thoroughly entertaining hour of television, and it is safe to say that it has us extremely excited to see what the producers for this show figure out for the fictional ones to do next year.

We’re also sure that there are some disappointed in the real lack of romance at the end of the day here, with Quinn and Rachel ending up alone looking at the sky, wondering why it is that the show is all they have. This is pretty much the anti-Bachelor, and while we actually do want to see them find some sort of actual happiness, we feel like the message that “UnREAL” is trying to send us is just how hard it can be in this environment.

We do feel like we’ve said this many times over now, but this is our favorite new show of the summer. It’s almost not even close. Grade: A-.
