Tonight: Rose will zip line. Sage will stand up for Sean Penn. And Megan will shock your pants off. Seriously. Pants will come off…
These are the spoilery words of Privileged's executive producer Rina Mimoun who, along with me and many fans, is crossing her fingers for a season two pick up right now.
If you're interested in helping the cause, you have to watch this evening's finale. The fate of the show depends on it and if the numbers dip tonight, we'll never get to see the fruits of Ms. Mimoun's latest labor. "We've spent so much time working on a second season full of Robert Buckley, dark Will and new, exciting romance for our girls," Rina tells me. "I can't imagine not getting to continue."
So yeah, Lipstick Jungle lovers, if you want your Buckley fix, you should tune in tonight to ensure that his finely crafted physique stays on television, because the axe has fallen on LJ, but there's still hope for Privileged and Mimoun plans to keep R.B. around.
As for the first season, that story will finish tonight and it ends with a surprising cliffhanger of sorts. You know, that shocking behavior Rina mentioned before… No, Megan's not sleeping with Robert Buckley's character. But if that was your guess, you're not crazy far off the track. For tonight, as I mentioned before, there will be fights, breakups, betrayals, booze (I hear Megan's dad has been drinking since mommy dearest disappeared), both sad and happy tears, a wedding ceremony and my girl Kathy Griffin. Oh, and Rose (Lucy Kate Hale) is supposed to sing again… at Marco and Keith's nuptials I think.
Now, without a new 90210 on at 8, Privileged has an even tougher wall to scale, sans a proper lead in. So don't just DVR the hour and plan to watch sometime later in the week. At that point, it'll be too late. If you like Privileged, make tonight's finale an event and tell your friends to do the same.
A lot of comments spelling out why you're obsessed with the series (that The CW will see) could be helpful too…
