I’ve only been a casual watcher of the New Adventures of Peter and Wendy, but I was really liking the ending … because you know what? The love of a good woman isn’t usually enough to change a man-boy’s ways, and Peter was an irresponsible jerk a lot of the time and Wendy needs to be with someone much better than that (if she even needs to be with anyone at all.)
It was a sad ending, but I liked it. Boys don’t change just because girls love them (ask me how I know this.) I felt bad for Wendy, but also excited for her - heading off for a new life, learning to be okay on her own.
… and then I saw that this was the end of season 1, not the entire show, which means there will (most likely) be a season 2 and they’ll get together after all and ugh.
