This popular TV technique is usually very satisfying for fans. Therefore, it is only logical to assume that some of the most popular shows on TV right now might conclude with a similar time skip in the series finale. Here is a list of some of the hottest shows on TV right now, and how they could incorporate a flash-forward ending.
One fan at the TV Tropes wiki suggests that the series could flash ahead in time, allowing viewers to see a teenage Holly White confront her father about his violent past. An interesting twist on this idea might be to have Holly win a science scholarship. But not just any scholarhsip: the UNM Maximino Arsiniega Chemistry Scholarship that Gus Fring himself set up as a tool for recruiting talented meth cooks.
"Mad Men"A flash-forward finale for "Mad Men" would allow fans to get closure on the stories of all the characters, from the relatively minor Ginsberg to the increasingly important Sally Draper. "Mad Men" is a series that is completely entrenched in the 1960s. Having a flash-forward in the finale would help fans to see how these characters adapted to changing times.
"Homeland"A government's work is never done. For that reason, a flash-forward finale would make a lot of sense for "Homeland." Even if Carrie and Brody do get their happy ending, a flash-forward could provide a thrilling chill at the end of the finale to keep things from feeling too saccharine.
