Does Kira ever get a Good End?

I've noticed a lot that when Kira is in the last scene, it's either an ambiguous, bittersweet, or melancholy ending to the show.

Does she ever get a happy ending? Maybe she does, and I don't notice it.

Re: Does Kira ever get a Good End?

The only one that comes to mind is escaping the MU in Crossover. Not a particularly happy ending, but not an unhappy or bittersweet ending either.

Her taking over the station at the end of the series was sort of happy back-to-business-as-usual sort of ending, sandwiched between leaving Odo with his people and mourning the loss of Sisko with Jake at the very end.

She's just not a happy ending sort of character.

How about the end of "Chimera"?

Re: Does Kira ever get a Good End?

At the end of the series? Heck no and I felt bad for her. But she didn't leave on a super sad note either, just bittersweet.

Re: Does Kira ever get a Good End?

Every arc did not get tied up with a pretty bow at the end. The door was left open for interpretation and future stories. But I liked it like that. The perfect way to end this series in my view.

Kira came full circle at the end. She ended where she began, but as a changed person.

Starship Down

She gets to go to a baseball game with Sisko after having an important emotional talk with him about how she feels about serving under the Emissary.

Also how about His Way?

And based on strict observation of the Intendant's catsuit, I'm forced to conclude that in any universe, Kira has an awesome end!

I guess she gets together with another Bajoran dude. She really seems into boring guys.

Re: Does Kira ever get a Good End?

Kira got her bittersweet end with Odo leaving. It's hard to have a happy end after that. But I like the way she was helping Jake at the end.

Kira probably did wind up with some Bajoran guy in the future but probably waited a while after Odo left, and she seemed like she felt it was her responsibility to wait for Sisko.

Re: Does Kira ever get a Good End?

Her ending in the real series was sad in a lot of ways. Sure the war was won, her world was on a new path, but there was a lot of cost. She lost friends, her love and in many ways was alone again. That's really what made the ending more... real, that it wasn't perfect and had the good with the bad. Like life often does.

Re: Does Kira ever get a Good End?

Kira episode endings almost always have to be bittersweet, much like Jake episode endings have to have a shot of him hugging his Dad.

Re: Does Kira ever get a Good End?

You think any ending Kira got in the series was bad? Try this on for size...



I actually think it's almost comical the way Kiras tend to have bad shit happening to them all the time. Like the "Crisis on Infinite Kiras" thing in the MU where mirror-Iliana seemed to be going from universe to universe, killing every Kira she could find...
