  • Yes! Nancy was the only one of Jack’s women that I wholeheartedly liked. She was a hoot and Julianne Moore’s awful Boston accent only made me love Nancy more. So glad she’s coming back for the finale!

    • I love Nancy! I hope Jack ends up with, but I’m still wishing that Liz ended up with Floyd or Dennis.

  • I loved Nancy and Avery, so I like that Jack is going to end up with one of them. One of my favorite episodes is when Jack and Kenneth go to Boston to erase a humiliating message off of her voicemail.

    • Me Too! I was hoping she would come back in some aspect, but it never happened…unless they surprise us in the final 5! It’d be great if all of his past loves made a cameo in one of the episodes!

  • I hope Floyd makes an appearance again.

  • Jack should end up with Nancy, Biance or Liz. Liz should’ve ended up with Jack, Wesley Snipes or Floyd.

    Why can’t Jack and Liz be together. Criss sucks.

    • What?!? Liz and Jack….god NO! That would be absurd. There is absolutly nothing romantic about those two. It’s the best “bromance” on TV. :-)
