Following the accident, Jen and Judy are admitted into hospital and this changes life forever for one of them. On the love life front, things are complicated for Jen! After killing Judy’s husband Steve, his twin brother Ben (James Marsden).

Jen may develop some feelings, but she her big secret of murdering Steve may not exactly result in smooth sailing for a relationship. Will Jen confess to committing murder? However, Ben may not be all that innocent either.

So, the final season of Dead to Me is like a series of confessions but by the end of the season the confessions seem to figure itself out. While the viewer is likely to experience some sadness, if he/she gets attached to a character, there is a sense of peace at the end of the series.

It is quite rare that a series ends with that sense of satisfaction and no cliffhanger, but Dead to Me certainly leaves the viewer without any more questions.
