I adored Me Before You. You can read my flaily review HERE. I’ll admit to being iffy on After You. I knew going in that if we continued on the arc, Still Me would be about Lou finding herself again after all she had been through, and I was right.
There’s nothing wrong with predictability, especially in this case, since it followed a specific arc. Lou leaves England for NYC and a “dream job”, and I understand the need for that time away. She needed to have time to learn who she is again. When she was surrounded by her family, Sam, Lily, the Traynors, she’s still locked in that past.
Of course, it’s Sam’s push that gets Lou to go New York, and he says they’ll just have a long distance relationship. With such a long distance relationship, there are miscommunications and downs, but Sam is a constant.
Lou makes her own way, and eventually realizes what she wants is exactly who she left back in England. It’s taken over three years since losing Will for Lou to find herself…just like he wanted her to.
This caps off the series nicely. We’ve finally seen Lou on her own and making her own way. We’ve followed her journey through thick and thin. Much like Lou is scored on Will’s heart, she’s scored on ours, and it was nice to see her story end on a happy note filled with possibilities.
