Lisa McGee, you've done it again.
The brains behind hit Channel 4 sitcom Derry Girls has made a habit of giving us all a lump in our throats and last night's series two finale was no different.
As Bill and Hillary Clinton rolled into town, there were the usual relatable gags like Ma Mary fretting about cleaning the house and Grandda Joe doing his utmost to track the Presidential couple down. While the adults of Derry concerned themselves with rolling out the red carpet, the youngsters had far more pressing matters on their minds.
Without giving too much away if you didn't catch it, it seemed at one point that the girls would be losing a prominent member of their gang before things took a dramatic twist. To make things really hit home, all of this was set to the backdrop of Bill Clinton's powerful address to the people of the city.
As viewers wiped their tears away, it was announced over the credits that Derry Girls will be returning for a third series and judging by these reactions to last night's episode, round three can't come soon enough.
Ah LADS. #DerryGirls

Love the ending of #derrygirls tonight.
“Work together because you have so much more to gain by working together”- Bill Clinton
It’s in our grasp if we just reach out and grab it

Derry Girls made me weep tonight with nostalgia. My dad took me out of school to see Bill Clinton. We were so hopeful back then. So excited about the possibilities. I don't know where we are now. #DerryGirls

I cried watching #DerryGirls tonight. Can still remember the sense of hope, joy and ambition for Northern Ireland's future during President Clinton's visit in Christmas 1995. I yearn so deeply for that spirit to be rekindled once again in 2019!

It just goes to show, we can all be a Derry Girl if we want to be. It's just a state of mind.
