This article is about the episode. For the song, see Wherever I Go.

"Wherever I Go" is the series finale and 98th episode of the award-winning Disney Channel sitcom series Hannah Montana. It was written by the show's executive producers, Michael Poryes and Steven Peterman. It originally aired on January 16, 2011 in the United States on the Disney Channel, and later aired in Canada on March 18, 2011 on the Family Channel. The episode title is a reference to the Hannah Montana song "Wherever I Go".

The episode also marks Mitchel Musso's second appearance as Oliver Oken in the show's fourth season.


Miley gets an offer from Steven Spielberg and Tom Cruise to star in a movie. However, filming is in Paris, and will take a year, making her incapable of going to college with her best friend, Lilly.

She keeps this from Lilly, and tries to get Lilly to come to the decision of not wanting to go to college with Miley, when they drive to Stanford University for a weekend orientation. Lilly, however, is just happy to be able to go to school with her best friend.

Finally, Miley reveals the movie deal to Lilly, and they get into an argument, where Lilly says to Miley that she would never want to go anywhere with her again. On the car ride home, Lilly further declares that she is moving back in with her father. Distraught, Miley discusses her dilemma with Jackson, and he suggests that Miley should have asked for Lilly to join her in Paris. Miley then hugs Jackson, and Robby declares it a touching moment for him.

Miley realizes that the real reason Lilly was upset was because they have done everything together, and Miley didn't ask Lilly to come with her to Paris. Miley then asks for Lilly to come with her to Paris, and they both decide to go to Paris together. Miley and Lilly's respective boyfriends, Jesse and Oliver, meet up with them at the airport to see them before their trip.

Oliver gives Lilly some key words that force her to second guess her decision. Before getting onto the plane, Lilly tells Miley that she has decided to go to college after all, even if it means being without Miley. Miley and Lilly begin their lives apart backed by a duet sung by the two actresses. The music eventually centers in Lilly's dorm where she gets a knock on her door.

She opens the door to reveal Miley, who declares, "I'm Miley, I'm your new roommate." Miley tells Lilly that there will always be movies, concerts, and tours for her to do, but she will only have one chance to go to college with her best friend. The two hug, and then a montage of images from the course of the show is displayed through the credits with the song "I'll Always Remember You" as the series ends.


Jackson struggles to keep up with his girlfriend Siena's bikini model lifestyle, as he feels inadequate in comparison. He makes several attempts at jobs to receive more money to buy Siena a nice gift, including demonstrating a snake, and working for Rico again. When he buys her a nice necklace, she buys him a car. Distraught, Jackson discusses his dilemma with Miley, and she gives him a pep talk.

Rico realizes he likes Jackson, and finds him a dream job, as a video game tester. Rico and Jackson finally reveal that while they may fight, they are also close friends. Later, while Jackson is working from a hot tub, Siena comments on how unsettling the banter between Jackson and Miley can be to hear, but Jackson explains to her that is how they show their affection.

Alternate ending

Included in the Hannah Montana Forever: Final Season DVD was an alternate ending to the episode. The alternate ending picks up from the airport scene, where Miley and Lily say their goodbyes. The camera then zooms onto a little girl sitting in a chair, holding a blonde doll. The text: "Tennessee: Twelve Years Ago" appears and shows a young girl portraying Miley Cyrus playing with a similar doll, singing a song about herself becoming a famous rockstar.

Miley's real-life parents, Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Cyrus, walk into the room, tell her that its past her bed-time and tuck her in. Miley then says, "I'm going to be a rockstar one day, just like Daddy." The scene eventually shifts into a photograph of the real life Miley and her parents, suggesting that like Miley Cyrus, Miley Stewart had a dream about being famous one day.


This episode was taped at Sunset Bronson Studios, similar to the show's other episodes.
