Jennifer Garner is going through The Office finale stages of grief: crying, laughing, and a good “Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica” quote. The actress recently finished the NBC series with her kids – Violet, 14, Seraphina, 11, and Samuel, 8 – and it left her (understandably) in tears. She tried to capture her feelings in a video, but ended up recording herself in slow motion, which kind of feels appropriate for 2020, doesn’t it?
“My kids and I have spent months piled on the couch working our way through ‘How to Behave as Grownups’ 🙅🏻♀️, aka #TheOffice,” she captioned her Instagram video on Aug. 24. “Apparently we are sensitive people-the finale hit us pretty hard. When I realized I’d accidentally shot my farewell testimonial in slo-mo I realized: your Monday might need this, too.”
Her instincts were right: we did need this! Clearly, show finales have a special place in Garner’s heart. Just last week, she shared an emotional moment with the Schitt’s Creek cast as she reflected on her final Alias days. But it’s not goodbye, it’s just see you later! Fans will always have those last episodes to go back to.
