"It’s the ending I pitched when I pitched the show," Urman said.

"I couldn’t have pitched them a million of the details that have happened along the way, and it doesn’t have to do so much with the plot and with all the twists and turns," she said. "But the overall structure and what I wanted to say about certain things — structurally, that’s built into the ending."
