So you open your podcasts and you find this.

And you're like "LORDY". Today is the final Serial episode in the series.

Your routine today is basically like this.

Faced at the same time with the realisation that this routine won't be like this again for quite some time.

And all of this tension is not helped by the fact that Sarah Koenig opens the episode with these words.

"Of course I have an ending. We're gonna come to an ending today." And so begins the final episode (!!!) of @serial.

Brilliantly, the opening minutes of the final episode of @Serial has a moment in which Adnan says, "Wait, you don't have an *ending*?"

The question is tackled head on in a Funny or Die sketch. Sarah Koenig has no idea how to end the podcast (or who actually did it), but is pressured to make a conclusion.

So, stressed and in a fit of panic, she admits this.

And the response so far to the Serial final episode? Mostly positive on Reddit forums and on Twitter.

That is a cracking final episode of @Serial. What a show. WHAT A SHOW.

Don't understand why @serial has to be only 12 eps. IT'S NOT LIKE THERE'S NOT MORE WORK TO BE DONE.

Main @serial gripe: Why does she say Kay-nig? Why not Ker-nig? It's Koenig, the German word for king, right? I've had it with this podcast.
