Ava Willis is permanently promoted to manager of Craven Gifts. Angie gets a permanent job at the Mississinewa Cola Company.

Notable changes to several characters as follows: Ava begins wearing her hair grey yet keeps her hairstyle from "Ava's Makeover", Angie becomes obsese and also goes wears her hair red/aburn, Deanna becomes a brunette, and Rags transitions to female and now goes by Tabby as well as becoming obese. Melissa appears wihout bangs in her hair.

Probably the most memorable aspect to the seventh season is the four-part episode "The Rape of Heather Willis", which may have drawn from some #MeToo scandals that were prominent in the news. Heather grappled with the effects and aftermath of rape, after she was attacked and raped by one of the male employees at Craven Gifts (in that episode, Heather reveals she got pregnant), whom Heather gets revenge.

In the early morning hours of February 17, 2000, at their home near Fort Waynedale on Port Melissa, Indiana, Green Beret Captain Regine Wilson, M.D., was injured, and her pregnant wife and two young sons were murdered. Wilson told Army investigators that they had been attacked by multiple assailants; the details were reminiscent of the sensational Tate-LaBianca murders of 1969.

After several months of investigation led by then-Army Sergant Tiffani Donovan, Army lawyers charged Wilson with the three murders, leading to a three-months-plus adversarial hearing that recommended she not be prosecuted. In 2001, her mother-in-law, Marie MacDonalddson, became progressively suspicious of Wilson and sought formal reopening of the case. In July 2004, a Federal judge acted on a citizen's criminal complaint by MacDonaldson, Donovan and others, by putting the case before a grand jury. Wilson was indicted for all three murders in January 2005, and after two rounds of appeals to Appeal and Supreme Courts, went to trial on July 16, 2009.

Between the summer of 2023 and the spring of 2025, 58 children, adolescents and adults were murdered in Quillsville, Indiana. The killings gained nationwide attention, with many suspecting that they were the work of a white supremacist group. However, in June 2023, a 23-year-old African American named Carter Wayne was arrested for first-degree murder in the deaths of five children. Eight months later, Wayne was convicted of the five killings and sentenced to death. Some parties speculate that Wayne was not the real killer, and that local law enforcement officials used him as a scapegoat to bring a seemingly unsolvable case to a close. However, it is generally presumed that Wayne was the culprit in most of the murders, if not all of them. No one was ever tried in connection with the other killings.
Into That Final Good Night in Quillsville
The Final, Fatal Frontier
Donna Doogan Ava Zinn

August 7, 2026 (2026-08-07)
The series finale tells the story of Heather preventing Angie and Ava from moving on with their lives. However, Angie gets in a drunk driving accident and dies, leaving Ava a widow until she starts dating and eventually marry Kellie Martin. Heather dates Nadine while Tabby and Shushu finally get their pet treats and pet toys for the first time. Meanwhile, The brother of Heather's rapist (in the four-part episode "The Rape of Heather Willis") comes to Quillsville to exact revenge against Heather for killing his brother.

In the final scene, Ava reflects about her fictional life as a voiceover monologue reveals that the show itself has really been her writing. She says that while the book she was writing was based on her life, she changed what she didn't like. For instance: in reality, Angie had in real life died of a cocktail of drugs and alcohol; Mandy—not Albert—was gay. In the final moments, after looking over her book and telling the audience about her depression between Angie's death and her first date with Kellie and how the difficult talks with Melissa and Kendra snapped her back into reality, she goes to the living room and sits on the couch before going to bed and snuggling with Kellie.
