Derry Girls is ending and as we prepare to watch the finale of the beloved Irish comedy, we’ve gathered up all the best and saddest reactions to the Derry Girls' last episode.

We cannot express how sad we are to be saying goodbye to our favorite Derry residents. Can you even imagine how we'll feel when Bridgerton ends?

The girls (and James) have given us endless laughs and our lives just won’t be the same without them. Dramatic? Perhaps. True? Absolutely. But alas, all good things must come to end and Derry Girls is no exception. 

The finale episodes air on May 17th and 18th, so as an ode to Erin, Orla, Clare, Michelle, and James—here are all the best and most heartbreaking reactions to the show’s third and final series, plus a few memes.

Prepare to weep…

What a cameo! We still can't get over the fact that Liam Neeson made a special appearance in the first episode—nor the fact he was effectively defeated by Uncle Colm. 

2. If you know, you know
