Goodbye I Didn't Do It

It's always saying goodbye, especially to the ones you love. The season two finale episode of I Didn't Do It, "The Rescuers" also marked the series finale for the show. Disney Channel cancelled IDDI after only two seasons, which came as a shock to me and the entire fandom.

For those of you who may not know, IDDI followed the relationship between brother–sister twins Lindy and Logan Watson and their three best friends, Jasmine, Garrett, and Delia, as they begin their freshman year of high school at Ditka High, and into their sophomore year in the second season. In the first season, each episode began with a comedic "what just happened" situation followed by the story being told in flashbacks. This concept was abandoned in the second season. There had been rumours for the four months leading up to the unexpected series finale regarding the cancellation of the show. It seems Disney Channel are heading in a new direction in terms of their programming, following the premature ending of other Disney Channel series like A.N.T. Farm, Shake It Up and Dog With A Blog, which, alongside our beloved IDDI, all ended unexpectedly.

In the final episode, Lindy and the gang scramble to book a big musical act in the benefit concert they are throwing to save an animal rescue shelter. Meanwhile, Jasmine finally figures out her feelings for Logan. Lindy and the gang decide to form a band to perform at the concert. Jasmine admits she still has feelings for Logan, so she decides her heart belongs with Logan instead of Owen. Lindy tells Logan that Jasmine still likes him, which he gets really excited about, and since Jasmine is confused about whether she belongs with Logan or Owen, Logan is willing to battle Owen in a duel to win Jasmine's heart. Jasmine breaks up with Owen to be with Logan, but Logan sees the two hugging, unaware they have broken up. Delia decides to break up with Brandon because she thinks they no longer have anything in common, so she hires Garrett to break up with Brandon for her, which he agrees to do for twenty dollars.

After the gang has performed, Logan is putting the drum set away and Jasmine offers to help him. Jasmine tells Logan that she has broken up with Owen to be with him, much to Logan's surprise and happiness. Jasmine and Logan finally admit their feelings for each other, Logan finally confesses to Jasmine he loves her, they finally become a couple, and the two share their first kiss, much to Lindy, Delia, Garrett, and Betty's happiness. In the final scene, outside Rumble Juice, the gang comes up with the idea of continuing the band and discusses band names. Lindy comes up with the name of "The Rescuers", which Logan, Jasmine, Delia, and Garrett all agree on, and the gang hugs.

I would like to say a  big THANK YOU to the entire cast; Austin North, Oliver Holt, Piper Curda, Peyton Clark and Sarah Gilman and the creators of the show Tod Himmel and Josh Silverstein. I wish everyone from IDDI the best of luck for the future and you will always have support from our fandom.
