When Dove Cameron leaves the Disney Channel, it will be a huge loss.
2 May 2017 | by Ddey65See all my reviews

Dove Cameron is without a doubt, the most talented singing actress that the Disney Channel has ever had, or will ever have. That's why when she's finally done with this show, the sequel to "Descendants," and all the promotional work involved, the loss to them will be as devastating as the murder of Phil Hartman and it's impact on the industry at large.

This episode is the third part to the series finale, which began with Liv Rooney suffering from vocal nodes that threatened not only her career but her very health, all while she is preparing to perform a torch song in a live episode of "Sing It Louder!!!" The second involves her recovery from nearly on the spot emergency surgery and her fears that she may never get a chance to sing again despite being wanted for a Broadway production. This also has a B-Story involving Parker and Val in a competition to stay in a bio-dome in preparation for a future Martian colony, and a C-Story where Joey finally takes in a stray cat. Which leads to the episode this review is for.

The Rooney's former Stevens Point, Wisconsin household has finally been rebuilt, and Karen wants to celebrate one last family summer in California, which she has hyped up as "The Summer of Rooney," much like Sue Heck did at the end of that one season of "The Middle." Liv is finally about to to get her Broadway debut, in a show about a European princess who sneaks out of her castle, hangs out in Brooklyn, and becomes a double dutch phenom. The trouble is, she's going to have to fly to NYC a bit sooner than expected. Maddie's about to get a visit from Diggie, who wants to go to the same college as her in order to train for a career as a sports announcer, but Maddie herself is being offered money from New Orleans to help the homeless by building one of those tiny houses she built in "Tiny Houses-A-Rooney" with Val and Willow. But from what I recall, she actually needed Val's help to build them to the necessary standards. Speaking of which, Parker and Val are on the verge of being relocated with each other into a bio-dome with the hope of studying life on Mars. However, Parker finds out this bio-dome project is going to be relocated to Brazil. But regardless, he's going to be with the girl he loves, so to be honest, he shouldn't be so afraid.

John Beck and Ron Hart tried to wrap the series up as quickly as possible, by adding a few secrets we've never known about the characters. Many fans are disappointed that they never got to learn Parker's middle name. I'm more disappointed that we don't learn Karen's maiden name, and for that matter whether that name is shared by Great Aunt Hilary, Aunt Dena, and Ruby. There doesn't seem to be a man (or woman) in Aunt Dena's life, so I've always been convinced that some guy impregnated her and left her to raise Ruby alone until Liv was sent off to Hollywood to star in "Sing It Loud!" Evidently, there were five other episodes that couldn't be made, because Dove was too busy making "Descendants 2." Perhaps some of those secrets are in those episodes. The only thing more devastating that this can be compared to is the death of Phil Hartman. Having said that, just as Hollywood still survived that catastrophe, the Disney Channel will survive the loss of Miss Cameron. But they will never be the same after she's gone.
