He was even on track to go off to college. His journey next season will be interesting. This was a season of character evolution and that certainly applied to Casey. There was a lot that was the same for her. But, there were new things added to her life that started her down a new path that led her to a profound situation by the end of the season. She went to a new school.
Casey is a character that thrives on overcoming things and craves a challenge. The season started off with what seemed like a pretty typical love triangle forming. Casey met Nate Graham Phillip at her new school and he took an instant liking to her. There was the obligatory jealousy between Evan and Nate with Evan not trusting the other man around his girlfriend. And the writers even threw in the obligatory mixed messages kiss that occurred during the sixth episode. Despite their initial interactions being less than cordial, they got closer when they both were confined to detention together during the third episode of the season.
They realized they had a lot in common. Both were at their prep school on scholarship and neither really felt like they fit in until they found each other. Izzie confessed about her tough home life and Casey opened up about Sam. After an afternoon in detention getting drunk together they formed a strong bond. Even then the writers played things very close to the proverbial vest. Then came the big fight after Izzie learned about Nate kissing Casey. It once again looked like the story took a very typical twist with new best friends becoming enemies as Izzie seemed to blame Casey for what happened.
It all seemed very expected and predictable and below the skills of these writers. This was a case of bait and switch and it was brilliantly executed to throw off the audience until the last possible second. As the friendship between Casey and Izzie developed there were signs that there was possibly something more going on. While the audience spent all season thinking the love triangle was between Nate and Evan battling for Casey it was actually Evan and Izzie battling for Casey.
One could have been forgiven for thinking that the love she spoke of meant love as in a best friend type of way. There was no denying the true meaning behind everything Izzie had said since that fateful stint in detention.

She had fallen and fallen hard for Casey and Casey might be developing feelings of her own for Izzie. The problem in this whole love triangle is Evan. He is head-over-heels in love with Casey and he fits in nicely with her family. Casey loves him and openly admits as much. He is a good guy who has had his own run of bad luck. He goes out of his way to help out her family even going so far as to help patch the hole in the wall during the seventh episode.
But, as the season progressed the cracks in their relationship began to show. As Casey got closer to Izzie she started to use Evan as a bit of a crutch to convince herself that anything she might have been feeling for Izzie was nothing at all because she loved him. That was never more evident than during the aftermath of the almost kiss between her and Izzie. This is where Izzie made some really classy moves that kept her in the running. She was repeatedly pushed away in the aftermath, but she kept her cool and let Casey process things in her own way, in her own time.
She shifted to just trying to preserve their friendship, not wanting to lose Casey again. Izzie hung back letting things play out and being cool about Casey and Evan. It is obvious that Izzie had already come to terms with her feelings for Casey and was allowing Casey to go through the same process. Then came the final moment of the season where everything between them came to a head. It is very telling that the writers chose this big grand realization between these two women to conclude the whole season. Bridgette Lundy-Paine and Fivel Stewart really shined at this moment as their impeccable chemistry really got showcased.
Their characters were clearly in two very different places in processing the feelings between them. Izzie clearly enjoys just spending time with Casey and for the moment was content in having that. Turns out that in that car four towns away from home was that moment. Casey confessed her love for Evan and that they had sex again. Izzie handled the revelation like a champ, accepting that statement. It clearly hurt, the pain in her voice and hurt in her eyes was obvious, but she had made her peace with the fact that she may not have a chance with the woman who stole her heart.
Izzie was walking on thin ice and she knew it and she knew at any moment Casey could pull away and this moment could be lost. Finally, she went in for the final crushing blow to Evan by opening her hand up to Casey. She opened her hand but allowed Casey to make the final push as their fingers interlaced in an intimate way.

Casey was hard to read throughout this, she was scared but hopeful, and at this moment she looked relieved as well. There is still the issue of Evan as was made evident when he called in the middle of this moment. They covered a lot of ground in the short amount of time they had.

They took these two from enemies to friends to best friends to whatever exactly it is they ended the season as. They definitely took a step beyond just friends and it was a quiet intimate moment. The beauty of this is the hand holding felt as intimate, if not more so, than their almost kiss in the prior episode. That was a beautiful scene of reconciliation and it served a very clear purpose, but it paled in comparison to the car moment. Lundy-Paine and Stewart said so much with just their hands and facial expressions.
This is a storyline with a lot of potentials that could turn into a truly beautiful relationship next season. Make no mistake, Casey still has a long way to go in making a final decision between Evan and Izzie, but Izzie clearly edged ahead of Evan. They each have so many great qualities, but each is flawed. It will likely come down to with whom Casey feels right. If the ending is any indication, that person may very well end up being Izzie. Maybe this whole situation will even bring Casey closer to her mom. She is going to need a little bit of guidance to navigate the tricky romantic minefield awaiting her as she tries to decide between the man she loves and the woman who has unexpectedly come in and challenged her feelings and her heart.
The season finale definitely stands out amongst the crowd. It left a lot up in the air as the season concluded. The cast, writers, and production team should be very proud of this season.
They crafted a beautiful, profound, impactful ten episodes of television. Now the tense wait begins to see if the show gets a third season. This is a story that is so important and needs to keep being told. There is still so much story left in this incredible series. This season started off with a lot of typical setups for all of the characters.
Love triangles, teenage drama, and parental conflict. It seemed like everything was going to go the way of predictable. But instead, the writers turned things on their head. This season was clever…it was atypical. The first and second seasons of Atypical are now streaming on Netflix.
