Viewers of the Essex reality show saw original castmember and show favourite Sam say farewell to the show on Wednesday night's eleventh season finale.
But it appears there was more to the scene than suggested.
Tweeting after the episode aired, Sam said: "Can't believe my last ever scene was cut down .. I said some lovely things to & about everyone over the last 4 years.. Very disappointed."
In the scene that aired, viewers saw Sam announcing her departure to friends Jessica Wright, James 'Arg' Argent and sister Billie Faiers while attending a prince and princess-themed finale party.
Sam explained her decision was influenced by her rekindled relationship with former co-star Joey Essex and her continued recovery after being diagnosed with Crohn's Disease earlier this year.
"I'm always party girl but I feel I need to step back a little bit. Where I was [before], not very well, now I'm feeling better. I want to concentrate on my health. And with me and Joey, we're really good. I feel I want to concentrate on our relationship. I need to step off the Essex scene for a little while, I think."
Sam was crying as she said this, while Jess, Billie and Arg also looked emotional about seeing her leave the show.
But while Sam said she disappointed about her final scene, it seems she's leaving the show with nothing but good memories. "I love u #TOWIE forever & always xxxxx."
In a poll this week, the majority of Reveal readers said they were sad to see Sam leave - but thankfully it's not for good.
A source told us last week: "Sam has decided to leave TOWIE at the end of this series, however this won't be the last we see of her.
"The plan is for Sam to return for a few episodes in the next series when Billie has the baby. Billie wants to stay put and the door will always be left open for Sam for future appearances."
We wonder if she'll ever bring Joey back with her?
Viewers watched Sam and Joey fall in love on the show and experience their share of ups and downs before splitting. Joey then left the show and found success in other TV ventures including I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! and Educating Joey Essex.
But this week Sam and Joey confirmed they are now back together by sharing a few snaps of each other via social media.
