The series finale of NBC’s Parks and Recreation aired on Tuesday night, bringing the curtain down on one of the best TV comedies of its generation. [Single tear rolls down face.] But this post is not about the final episdoe. I wouldn’t want to ruin it for those who haven’t watched it yet. Instead, this post is about what the finale would have been like if series creator Michael Schur had listened to Chris Pratt.
The entire cast of Parks and Rec sat down with Amy Poehler‘s old pal Seth Myers last night, and, among some other interesting tidbits, we learned that Chris Pratt would have wrapped things up by showing how everybody dies, Six Feet Under style.
It sounds a little morbid, I know, and the studio audience literally gasped when Pratt said Aubrey Plaza‘s April Ludgate would have died of a broken heart. However, that part was just a setup for a brilliant punchline. Watch the clip above to see what that punchline was. There’s just one minor spoiler.
