Leslie Knope walks into her former office, clears her throat, and says, “Goodbye, guys!” Oh no. Where’s she going?! Donna asks, “Where are you going?” Leslie says, “I’m going to see my real friends and hang out with them for a while.” Tom asks, “But I thought we were your real friends?!” Leslie says, “No, you guys are my friends too, but my real Friends live in New York City!” Cut To: Leslie Knope sits down on the couch in Central Perk with Monica, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, Joey, and Phoebe. Friends is back on NBC! That’s my guess. Do you think that’s it? Amy Poehler says she knows what it is! Or, at least, she knows what the end of this season is! From Paper:

Despite the critical hosannas, Parks fans are in a constant state of anxiety about the show meeting a premature end, like Arrested Development or Freaks and Geeks. “I think I know how the show ends,” Poehler says. “To some extent, with the exception of one or two seasons, we never really know if we’re coming back. I know how this season ends — it could be an ending for the show, or it could be an ending for the season.”

The episode ends, the picture fizzles out, but then it comes back in and Ron Swanson wakes up. Wait. Was it all a dream? He looks in the mirror and, oh my god, Ron Swanson was a dog the whole time! It was all a dog’s dream! He looks around the room and…oh my god, he’s still in the same office and everyone is a dog! Everyone on Earth is a dog and humans don’t even exist! “I just had the weirdest dream,” says Ron Swanson. “What happened in it?” asks a human. Oh my god. They DO exist?! (The End.) Did I get it that time? What do you think? HOW WILL THIS SEASON OF PARKS AND RECREATION END?!

  1. Mark Brendanawicz comes back and reveals that he was Gossip Girl the whole time.

  2. It ends with Kristen Bell looking adorable.

  3. It ends to make room for more episodes of The Voice.

    • Andy dies in a freak touch football accident and April expresses her grief by marrying Carson Daly for the express purpose of gaslighting him.

    • I sign up for all TV surveys for all channels just to let them know that I’m not watching their stupid reality shows. And today I lied about my age for some Fox survey because I’m quite sure someone born in 1985 is their target for their crap singing show. #lifehacks

  4. Flash forward 15 years and Ann and Chris’s baby has become a psychotic child dictator a la Joffrey and he has the heads of all the main cast members on stakes outside of City Hall.

  5. I would watch Barks & Recreation.

    • I would watch Farts & Procreation. It’s just Adam Scott, Chelsea Peretti, Harris Wittles and Scott Aukerman dicking around for an hour every week.

      • Isn’t that Comedy Bang Bang?

        • Sure, but it could be a post-show hour after P&R, like Talking Bad or Talking Dead, but instead of Chris Hardwick discussing the season finale with Jimmy Kimmel, Scott Aukerman talks about fart pornos and they play Would You Rather.

          This saves NBC and if it happens, I fully expect an EP credit.

  6. A dozen hosannas to the writer of that article for using his thesaurus, but minus one million hosannas for implying that there is, or has ever been, any correlation between critical and commercial success.

  7. Leslie is excitable and comically invested in her work. Ron is manly and stolid. Nothing too serious goes wrong.

  8. chris pratt drives in a car for ten episodes with sherri shepherd
