Offspring fans in turmoil after finale
"This seems like a forever ending," gasp devastated fans of Offspring.
The finality of the episode, which finished with a family photo on baby Zoe’s birthday, included loving close-ups of all the central characters and a fond glimpse of Patrick’s ghost by Nina Proudman.
Storylines for Nina, Billie, family and friends were all satisfactorily resolved.
“Yes, Zoe, this is your family. And it’s always going to be like this,” Nina conceded.
It was enough to tip fans over the edge on social media.
