Growing up means becoming more responsible, and Miley (Miley Cyrus) and her brother Jackson (Jason Earles) face some difficult, life-changing decisions in the final six episodes of the third and penultimate season of Hannah Montana
. "You Never Give Me Money" finds Jackson pleading for a later curfew and Miley angling for a raise in her allowance, but when puppy-dog eyes and begging don't seem to convince their dad (Billy Ray Cyrus), Jackson and Miley discover that acting responsibly might just do the trick. Hannah has to stand up to her father and a crazy choreographer in "Papa's Got a Brand New Friend," and in "Promma Mia," she has to choose between singing a duet with David Archuleta and keeping her word to a geeky classmate. "He Could Be the One" chronicles Hannah's simultaneous infatuation with Jake and fellow band member Jesse and her turmoil over deciding which boy to date. In the end, it's Miley's departed mother that helps Miley realize that true happiness can only be found by following her heart. This episode is punctuated by a multitude of hilarious musical interludes performed by Jackson and Rico (Moises Arias) in a range of musical styles, including a Scottish jig, a Caribbean song, a Broadway duet, and even a disco number. The surprisingly moving two-part episode "Miley Says Goodbye?" may just signal the end of an era for Hannah Montana
fans as Miley struggles to decide whether to remain in Hollywood or return to her home town of Crowley Corners, Tennessee. While Miley can't imagine moving away from her close friends Lilly (Emily Osment) and Jackson (Mitchel Musso), she misses her horse Blue Jeans, her family, and her life in the country. After some bizarre dreams in which Miley's horse pleads with her to come home, Miley again realizes that only by listening to what's in her heart can she figure out which course of action will make her happy. Only one question remains: how will her friends and family feel about her decision?
