LOS ANGELES -- The final season panel for FXX’s “You’re the Worst” tried to answer an important question: who is the worst?

The candidates were Chris Geere’s Jimmy, Aya Cash’s Gretchen, Desmin Borges’ Edgar and Kether Donohue’s Lindsay, who have all left the line of morality behind at some point in the course of four seasons. But who takes the title?

During the Television Critics Association panel Friday in Beverly Hills, Geere made the case he sits in a solid second place, having abandoned Gretchen in the Hollywood Hills moments after proposing to her. Donohue jockeyed for first place, claiming it doesn’t get worse than stabbing your husband out of disappointment with her life.

But Cash teased the worst moment by anyone in the cast is still yet to come in the final season.

“(Gretchen and Jimmy) do something so heinous and deplorable you’ll think we can’t come back from it,” she said, noting they were going to film the scene after the panel. “When we all read it, I think we thought we’d jumped the shark and they were just messing with us because it was the last season.”

Donohue is actually disappointed when Lindsay doesn’t make a play for the Worst title.

“I never find anything hard to justify with Lindsay, she’s just Lindsay,” she said, later adding, “When I open a script, I kind of get sad when Lindsay does adult stuff.”

The cast agreed with Borges' opinion that Edgar is the nicest of them all, save for a few questionable moments in seaosn four.

Although the show is built on an aversion to the tropes of romantic comedies, the panel was full of emotion.

Cash got choked up talking about working with her costars and admiring their work through the five seasons. Meanwhile, Donohue and Borges often held hands during the panel, offering each other support when the conversation turned emotional.

“I just think we are lucky that we get to play off each other because I have so much respect for these people as actors, and that very rare in this business,” Cash said, losing a battle to fight back tears.

Those tears weren’t confined to the stage Friday.

Geere said the final season have been an exciting and “wistful” experience because it addresses a lot of the questions both the cast and the fans have sought answers to.

“Let me just say, we all cried when we found out,” he said.

The final season, which will premiere on FXX in January, won’t be all sadness. The first episode will to take aim at 90’s rom-coms with the show’s signature parody voice.

Falk called it one of his favorite episodes of the series.
