The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 4 – Ending Explained

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 4 – Ending Explained

Mrs. Maisel, a 1950s housewife-turned-comedian, isn’t feeling well at the start of Season 4. She was discarded after riding high as Shy Baldwin’s opening act (Leroy McClain). She claims she’ll only take jobs that allow her to say anything she wants, stubborn as ever and terrified of going through it again. As a result of this, she is no longer only an opening act.

As a result, Season 4 of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” follows Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) as she attempts to recapture her prior life — particularly her magnificent Upper West Side apartment — and her career. She sets her goal of turning an illegal strip club into a high-production, illegal strip club, but by concentrating on one location, she turns down job after job at other places. Midge’s blunder leads nowhere, and the season finale, “How Do You Get to Carnegie Hall?” makes it clear that something must change for her to achieve the success she desires.

Mrs. Maisel’s obstinacy will be her undoing if she lets it.

Midge has found a comfortable spot at the strip club after using her wit to woo a new customer (read: women who prefer fruity cocktails with little umbrellas). The only problem is that the club is raided, leaving her stranded and owing money to her previous father-in-law (Kevin Pollak), dry cleaner, and grocer.

In the pretense of a large job, a longtime friend and ally Lenny Bruce (Luke Kirby) emerges with an apparently ideal answer. Because it’s an opening act, Midge declines. Only after she and Lenny act on their increasing attraction and have a sexual relationship. In a powerful concluding scene, Lenny chastises her for turning down the job, basically reminding her that she can’t be so finicky if she wants to succeed. Midge exits the fabled stadium and falls onto the street in the middle of a blizzard, bringing a fictional event with historical precedent to a close. While a snowstorm raged outside, the genuine Lenny Bruce improvised in front of a sold-out Carnegie Hall audience in 1961.

In this moment, Midge and Lenny’s relationship is at its best, as he forces her to rethink her “plan” and tells her that she must do whatever it takes to accomplish what she wants. After all, it was their shared ambition for success that drew them together. “What we love about the Lenny-Midge bond is that he respected her for her talent — for her guts,” co-creator Amy Sherman-Palladino told Vanity Fair in December. “There was something about her that made him assume she was going to try to strike out like he was.” Midge, on the other hand, is too traumatized by her experience with Shy Baldwin to keep on.

Midge just has one more season left to live.

The future of Mrs. Maisel is hinted at in the final scene before the credits. Midge is bewildered and alone when she steps out into the storm and sees the words “Go Forward” on a billboard, then blinks to see “The Gordon Ford Show.” It’s the same talk show where comedian Sophie Lennon (Jane Lynch) began her career and Susie (Alex Borstein) tried to gain a spot in the program for Midge a few episodes ago. Given the fact that Season 5 is scheduled to be the final season, this scenario suggests that Midge will take Lenny’s advice and audition for Gordon Ford’s show. She just has one more season to land her own Carnegie Hall performance, so she needs to get moving.

At the start of Season 4, Midge is still upset about her separation from Shy Baldwin. “Anger motivates people much better than happiness or contentment,” Amy Sherman-Palladino told Deadline. Midge’s motives appear to be shifting once more. It’s uncertain if Lenny’s disappointment will play a part, but he’ll almost surely return next season. The real Bruce dated Lotus Weinstock, a Jewish mother, and fellow singer, in the 1960s (via The Los Angeles Times).

Luke Kirby’s charisma and connection with Rachel Brosnahan have kept Lenny on the program despite the fact that he was only scheduled to be in the pilot. Midge’s discovery of a small bag of cocaine in his bathroom foreshadows what was to come for the famed comic, who died of an overdose in 1966. We won’t see his death in “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” unless the next season jumps ahead several years, so we’ll barely get a glimpse.

A number of characters are in danger in Season 5.

“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s” Season 4 finale leaves plenty of material for Season 5, which Amazon has confirmed will be the series’ final season. Almost every character has a flaw: Midge’s mother, Rose (Marin Hinkle), is overjoyed at her new career as a matchmaker, but she’s at odds with Manhattan’s established matchmaking circle. They’ve split up. Season 5 will show us how a matchmaker battle looks.

Susie, on the other hand, has dedicated the season to expanding her management firm. She has two prospective new clients, but she has to rely on her mobster buddies for help, who demand a cut in return. That tension will very surely dissipate next season, as their generosity almost certainly comes with strings attached. Joel’s father (Kevin Pollak) finally recovers from his heart attack and blesses Joel (Michael Zegen) and Mei (Stephanie Hsu). However, Joel must still inform his mother (Caroline Aaron) about their relationship and pregnancy, therefore the next season will likely focus on Joel and Mei’s capacity to start a family.
