"All the promos for this final season teased a big dramatic ending with images like Abbi and Ilana hanging on for dear life off the side of a building," says Kayla Kumari Upadhyaya. "And in actuality, this ending is a big dramatic ending! It might not be literally explosive, but it sure is emotionally....That kind of intensity and emotional potency is what makes Abbi and Ilana such a special friendship. You don’t see stuff like that on television a lot. Their friendship has always been complex and fully believable. It’s the kind of romantic friendship between women that feels often impossible to describe, and yet this show paints such a clear picture of it. Their friendship indeed has many times looked like a romantic relationship, even at times being a bit sexual, which ties into how this show has always felt very queer in its DNA even before it was explicitly so. This is not a typical friendship for television, and Broad City has rarely ever felt conventional, slightly anarchic in its approach to storytelling. Broad City knows it’s impossible to sum up a friendship with a simple description, so it spent five seasons just showing us what Abbi and Ilana’s relationship looks like over and over, creating something beautiful amid all the zany shenanigans."
