If, like me, you tuned in to Lifetime’s “Army Wives” Sunday for the first time in a while to catch the episode the network had been promoting as the end, you might be a little confused by how it actually concluded: With a plane carrying a good chunk of the remaining cast members that appeared to be experiencing turbulence and Gen. Michael Holden (Brian McNamara) responding to a phone call that apparently brought bad news.
So what was up (or down) with that cliffhanger?
According to a Lifetime spokeswoman, promos or not, no decision has yet been reached about a seventh season for the show, which TVSeriesFinale.com reports has recently been averaging about 3 million viewers per episode. (Zap2it.com reports that Sunday’s show averaged just under 3.3 million.)
The stars of “Army Wives” include Roxborough’s Kim Delaney — whose character, Claudia Joy Holden, wasn't in the episode — Wendy Davis (whose character was on that plane) and Catherine Bell, who, as TVSeriesFinale.com noted, was on Twitter earlier this week suggesting that the cliffhanger was “kind of a good sign” for the show. (Apparently, an alternate ending was also filmed.)
