‘The Marvelous Mrs Maisel’ Ending Explained: Are Midge and Susie still friends? Finale answers the burning question
Spoilers for ‘The Marvelous Mrs Maisel’ Season 5 Episode 9
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: There’s a lot happening in the series finale of ‘The Marvelous Mrs Maisel’ but the creators have left the best of the last. There have been several time jumps in Season 5 of this show, but the ultimate one takes place at the end of the series. While Midge Maisel’s life has had a lot of interesting people come and go, the one person who truly stuck by her through thick and thin was Susie Myerson.
Manager and best friend, Susie, has jumped through hoops when it came to Midge’s career, which continues to be a success even in 2005, decades later. However, fans have had one burning question, and ‘The Marvelous Mrs Maisel’ has also hinted at Susie and Midge taking different paths and losing touch. Does ‘The Marvelous Mrs Maisel’ series finale tie this loose end?

Are Midge and Susie still friends?
The last five minutes of ‘The Marvelous Mrs Maisel’ Season 5 are most likely the most wholesome minutes of the entire season. All viewers can put their minds to rest because Susie and Midge are still friends, and closer than ever. In the 2005 time jump, it was established that Midge lives all alone in a big house, with no one around. This was a smart misdirection on the creator’s behalf, only to lead up to a long-distance phone conversation between the two friends. In fact, it looks like out of everyone Midge once had in her life, Susie is the only one who stuck around. The two of them get on a phone call, put the speakerphone on, and watch ‘Jeopardy!’ together.
Midge and Susie have the same bond they once did, but only this time, they have a whole ocean between them. Susie has long white hair, an image fans will not be able to get over, as she tends to her very loud birds. When Susie can’t find her glasses, Midge knows exactly where they are. It was a rather heartwarming scene, with the right amount of comedy and the perfect end to ‘The Marvelous Mrs Maisel.’
Has Susie retired?
Unlike Midge, who continues to be a workaholic, Susie has taken a different route in life. When Midge talks to her about her current work team and how they left an empty day in her schedule, Susie offers to give them a call. But, Midge wishes Susie would just come back to work, to which Susie says, “I’ve done my time.” Maybe it is time Midge takes a page out of Susie’s book too! Whether they’re working or not, whether they’re married or single, they continue to remain best friends, concluding ‘The Marvelous Mrs Maisel’ on the sweetest note possible.
