fans of friends saw how Rachel Green (played by Jennifer Aniston) ran towards ross geller (David Schwimmer) in the series finale.
The couple’s decision to rekindle their romance came as no surprise. In fact, most viewers were hoping that the couple would get back together, anticipating that they would see it in the finale.
It almost didn’t happen that way. The show’s writers considered an alternate ending, and it would have left the shippers of Ross Y Rachel feeling a bit cheated.
An alternate ‘Friends’ ending left Ross and Rachel’s relationship in doubt
Ross and Rachel were always going to be together in the end. Still, the show’s creators considered an alternate ending that didn’t show how the pair got there. In a 2014 interview with Entertainment Weekly, the show’s co-creator, David Cranesaid: “We talked, with Ross and Rachel, about a gray area where they’re not together, but hinted that there’s a sense that they might be in the way.”
Did Ross and Rachel end up together?
Although the relationship of Ross Y Rachel it was difficult, fans are sure that the couple understood right after the series ended. In a TVInsider poll, 65% of those surveyed believe that Ross and Rachel are still together today.
Another 15% argue that they are still together but have experienced at least one breakup since the series ended. Only 11% of those surveyed believe that the fictional couple has parted ways for good.
Assuming they’re still together, most fans agree they’re probably married. Their daughter, Emma Geller, born in the season 8 finale, would be an adult today. Born in 2002, Emma turned 20 in April. Ross’s eldest son, ben gellerborn in season 1 of Friends, would be 27 years old.
Ben went missing in Season 8 of Friends. He never met his half sister.
