The Muppets Season Finale: Did Kermit and Miss Piggy Get Back Together?

The Muppets Recap

Fans of The Muppets have waited all season for Kermit and Miss Piggy to finally get their acts together, and Tuesday’s two-part season finale presented them with the perfect opportunity.

A freak dancing accident — during “Single Ladies,” ironically — landed Piggy in the hospital, where she got the liquid courage (courtesy of her morphine drip) that she needed to drop the L-bomb on Kermit… before proceeding to also profess her love for hand sanitizer and an imaginary giraffe.

Piggy’s declaration of love, while heavily drug-induced, was enough to stir similar feelings within Kermit’s tiny felted heart — and more than enough to divide the staff of Up Late into #TeamLove and #TeamFriendship.

Kermit, ever the consummate professional, decided before Piggy’s final show of the season that he was going to keep things strictly business with his former flame. But like I said, that was before her final show; hearing Jack White perform Stevie Wonder’s “You Are the Sunshine of My Life” was enough to push Kermit back over to #TeamLove.

Piggy’s words (“I need a frog who’s all in”) echoed in Kermit’s tiny green head as he boarded her post-show flight to Thailand and declared his love: “I know it’s risky, and I know I want to try anyway.” His beloved didn’t exactly remain conscious for his full confession — oh, Piggy, always mixing booze with pills — but I think it’s safe to assume she would have reciprocated. … Right?
