‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ series finale brings the curtain down on Midge’s moment

(CNN) — In the end, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” closed its act by focusing on the relationship – in the show’s world, anyway – that mattered the most.

After a series of flash-forwards throughout the final season, and a serious rift between Midge Maisel (Rachel Brosnahan) and her agent Susie (Alex Borstein), the two were back together in the distant future, laughing and bantering and watching “Jeopardy!” together like an old married couple. Having come through the wars, both emerged rich and unscathed, as conquerors of the comedy world.
