Spoiler Alert: Do not read on if you haven’t watched Tuesday’s series finale episode, “One Last Ride.”
It was an emotional night for the cast of “Parks and Recreation” as they said goodbye to Pawnee once and for all.
After the Season 7 finale aired on NBC Tuesday, Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Adam Scott and the rest of the crew visited “Late Night with Seth Meyers” to share their fondest memories of the show — and reveal how they wanted it to end.
With the last-ever episode revealing how they all ended up in 10, 20 and 50 years time, Meyers asked if there was anything that the actors had suggested “for where their characters ended up that didn’t get taken up by anyone.”
“I pitched that I would have sex with Joe Manganiello,” confessed Retta, but sadly “that never happened.”
Meanwhile showrunner Michael Schur spilled someone else’s secret when he revealed that Chris Pratt had sent him a text pitching that viewers would see how everyone died like in HBO’s “Six Feet Under” finale.
“When you saw April, it would be that she died of a broken heart,” Pratt explained.
“And then you would see that Andy died because he was left in a hot car with the windows drawn up,” he said, comparing his lovable character’s demise to that of a dog.
As TheWrap previously reported, what really happened to “Park and Rec’s” most adorable couple was that they took their time in deciding on starting a family, only to have their firstborn in the most April of fashions: on Halloween, her in full zombie makeup, as “Monster Mash” plays.
Among the other interesting, but less amusing, revelations was that Aziz Ansari was the first person to sign on even before he saw a script. “It really could have been anything,” he said.
