After overcoming multiple kidnappings, outside entanglements and disapproving families, Numb3rs' Charlie (David Krumholtz) and Amita (Navi Rawat) are finally getting their happy ending.
But the couple's long-awaited wedding in Friday's Season 6 finale (10/9c, CBS) is overshadowed by the ever-growing possibility that the show won't be back after the honeymoon's over. Earlier this season, CBS' math-driven procedural had its episode order reduced by six hours. The result: Writers scrambled to produce an ending that could double as a series finale.
Plans for Charlie and Amita's ornate wedding went out the window. Instead, the couple gets hitched - where else? - at CalSci, just days before they are to depart for a visiting professorship at Cambridge University in London. Considering the circumstances, the change of plans is fitting, Krumholtz tells TVGuide.com.
"It was an unintended wink," Krumholtz says. "It was really important for the writers to do it in a way that didn't feel false. ... It's fitting with what we've established the show to be. It's a show about characters and the intimate relationship between a group of people. So instead of having 200 people at their wedding, there's only five or six people. It's actually really kind of sweet because it's all about the cast.
"It's a nice way to end things because the show has always been that little engine that could - the Friday night show that no one thought would make it," Krumholtz says. "In the end, the wedding, which is the most formulaic generic exploitative TV thing Numb3rs has ever done, was small as well. It's a cute little wedding on a cute little show."
