    The Finale Of "Derry Girls" Caught Us Off Guard, But Luckily There's A Special Episode Airing Tonight

    "i never thought derry girls could make me cry but here we are.."

    The final episode of the third season of Derry Girls aired last night, and it was an emotional rollercoaster.

    Fatboy Slim made an appearance, Aunt Sarah accidentally got engaged, James got fake beaten up, and Clare finally had her first kiss!!!

    And even though we're not quite at the end of our Derry Girls journey – there's an hour-long special airing tonight – the season finale left us in an emotional wreck.

    Fans were caught off guard, to say the least:

    A small thing that I loved was the girls were so excited for Clare after her kiss that they didn't even care about the concert #derrygirls

    Derry Girls really said that life is not a linier series of events. The worst parts of your life can and will co-exist with the best parts&there is no telling if/when those will be. So you just have to try and make the best of every situation as it comes to you. They were right!
