Tears flow for Rafters

Photo1rafIt was a sentimental but faithful ending for Packed to the Rafters last night.

No deaths, no explosions, no shocks to leave us reeling -but plenty of emotion.

Yes, Julie and Dave Rafter packed up the Kombi van and headed to the Great Ocean Road. The last scene filmed was the one where the couple take down the photos off the wall, in order to capture genuine emotion.

And while there were plenty of TV shows trending on Twitter (including Wimbledon, Under the Dome, MasterChef, 7:30, The Block, The Drum, Tour de France and even Q & A) it was #rafters that was soon sitting at the top of the heap with #Packed to the Rafters not far behind.

Many tweets commented on the tears that were flowing in their living rooms, still in disbelief one of their favourite families had departed.

Here we go. Ep 122. The final Packed to the Rafters ever. Cue tears. #rafters

  1. Quite happy with the “Rafters”final. Shots of the characters carrying on with their lives, music and ends tied up. Okay. All good.

  2. I loved the ending when they showed flashbacks of each of the children.

    Also I loved how Jake proposed to Rachael. They have been out of it for awhile but it was so simple how they did it.

    I will miss the show. The storylines were really well done

    Not bad for a show that started 6 seasons ago with two famous names as the parents and a bunch of n names as the children. How that changed.

    Bye Rafter family.

  3. A good ending however what’s got me beat is what happened to Dave’s electrical business while he’s off for 6 months around Australia? I didn’t hear an explanation. Pretty sure there will be some angry unemployed characters once that Combi drove off!

  4. I cry at the drop of a hat when watching sad shows, but I didn’t shed a tear watching Rafters final episode. Very sad to see it go though.

  5. I completely lost it during the scene where they were taking down the kids photos. Just thinking about it now is making me emotional.
