Boss S2E10 "True Enough" Finale OAD 2012-10-19 ***spoilers****

It sure looked like this was not only the Season Finale of Boss, it's the Series Finale.

They wrapped up about every thread in rapid time.

It was the deepest plunge into the dark.

Never before has a Chicago Mare left so many actual bodies lying around.

I was thinking that there is not a single sympathetic character in the entire cast. Even our hero reporter made some dick moves when he made a deal to oust his boss from the editor job.

Overall it was a good quality yarn but I don't think we could have taken much more of the morose happenings.

They still have a few loose ends, like his son which I don't think the Mayor knows about yet and the incest issue which his daughter does know now.

Nah. I think Kane knew all along who Ian is.

At the start he said something like, "(I know why) you are on the fast track" and Kane had the birth certificate, knowing full well what his name is, and we saw that Kane paid off and then threatened Ian's Mom to keep her mouth shut or suffer the consequences.

Remember that Ian had a copy of that picture with Kane and his Mom that's in the Irish cop bar.

The sick part is that Ian knew full well he was boinking his sister.

We hear the ratings have been bad.

We never found out why J.R. Ewing was reporting on Kane's speech early on.

I was thinking that the only characters that are good are the neurologist and maybe the aide from the Gardens, although she had ambitions. Lord knows why the doctor agreed to come back and take care of Kane again.

I totally agree Kane might have known all along but I don't recall him seeing the birth certificate. There are many reasons Ian could have been on the fast track (his ruthlessness mainly). The payoff to Ian's mom we saw was a flashback and it only showed Ian as a boy looking through a car window. They didn't show us anything this season that totally proves Kane knew Ian is his son. I do remember the photo, that's when I first realized Ian was supposedly Kane's son. Ian had it propped up in his home. Only Ian and his sister have connected the dots on that one so far. I can't remember any one thing that showed Kane knew it as well. I figure the writers constructed it this way so we would have these questions and stick around for the next season hopefully forthcoming.

Ummm...the birth certificate copy was in a suitcase in Mayor Kane's house. Somebody named Kane put it there.

So much for my photographic memory. I remember something like that but like it was a fake or something. Do you happen to remember which episode that was?

In THIS last episode. Emma Kane finds the certificate in the suitcase.

No, we didn't see who put it there, but the suitcase was full of Tom Kane's mementos, as if it was packed when they moved from a previous home.

Didn't she find that in Ian's home?

I wasn't sure what to call it (home, condo, apartment) so I just called it home. She unquestionable finessed her way in to Ian's home and found the birth certificate and the bar picture.

You missed something.

Emma found the birth certificates in a box of mementos in Ian's apartment.

There is NOTHING that ever indicated that Kane knew this was his son.

But Ian knew, and slept with his half-sister anyway, which was just icky.

She knew as well, but I think it's probable that her father is the banker/developer that got screwed in the development deal.

Huh?

Her father is Kane.

Nothing to indicate she is not Kane's daughter.

And she had NO idea Ian was his son (her brother) until she found the box in the apartment.

Agreed on all points. They could make it un-icky next season by introducing a twist that Kane isn't the bio-dad which, of course, there is no evidence at all and a little too predictable so I hope they don't do that.

Boss is cancelled.

Quote:
Starz made official Tuesday what most had long suspected: The cable network has cancelled the Chicago-set political drama "Boss." Starring Kelsey Grammer in a formidable, Golden Globe-winning performance, the show struggled in the ratings for two seaons -- and it is unlikely the show would have made it to Season 2 if Starz had not made the bold decision to renew it before the series debuted last year.

... "Boss" employed a large stable of Chicago actors in prominent roles, including an entire faction from the Steppenwolf Theatre: Amy Morton, Francis Guinan and James Vincent Meredith.

Update: Sources confirm to THR that Starz has had talks to wrap the series with a two-hour movie. The second season finale tied up the season-long mystery with Grammer's Tom Kane still in full control of Chicago, and with his illness still under wraps.

Would be nice if they could wrap it up with a movie. I really liked this show.

Sad to see it go but I'd be OK with a movie to wrap things up. I think that's sort of what they're doing with the Big C... a 4 ep wrap up.

Also sad to see it not renewed. Compelling, sharply written and different than most cable dramas. And Kitty... holey moley {insert leer emoticon}.

A movie wrapup would be icing on the cake.

That sucks.


The show was excellent. I did view it as the least humorous and most serious show on tv but it was still amazing.

I think the reduction of Kathleen Robinson naked in season two did them in.
