    Good to have the guys back for one last fling, even if it has become pretty absurd.

    The house burning down was pretty stupid. The amount of time between Turtle tossing his joint and someone smelling smoke was not that long. They should have been able to put it out or at least contain it to that section of the house.

    And how lame that they've got this party filled with hotties yet all they can worry about is Vince and his stupid movie idea. Vince should have had a couple of those chicks in his bedroom and the rest of them could have relaxed.

    I didn't even realize the show was back. I just happened to turn on the TV and it was on HBO and the show was on. I didn't recognize the episode and saw the 2011 year. I knew it was coming back, but thought it was next month for some reason.

    I recorded the episode, but haven't watched it yet. Always loved the show. Too bad it is the last season.

    I thought Arie crying like that was way out of character and misplaced.

    Only T and A was the girl at the rehab center flashing them as they drove off. Lets get things back to normal, nekked girls, booze and good times. Since the season has already been filmed and production is over there wont be any changes that we can ask for.

    If you look really closely, she had a bra on.

    Just saw a spoiler in the previews for the next episode about who Mrs. Ari is dating... so if you're reading this in an email notification where the spoiler tag doesn't work --stop reading now.

    Ari's wife is dating Bobby Flay. And he's cooking for her.

    I did a little research before I created this. Last season had four threads for thirteen episodes. At one point, a ST was created; it had 133 replies. The four ETs had 16/7/8/46 replies. Nine episodes had none.

    Interesting factoid: The season thread was created BEFORE the ET that had 46 replies. That was a hot episode, "Bottoms Up"--Sasha Grey, Mrs. Ari, and Sloane & E debating the back door. So it is possible to have a ST and an ET co-exist.

    But to answer your question, I think an ST is the way to go. But if there is a particularly moving episode, if Mrs. A decides to go commando on us, I'll be the first to start an ET.:up:

    I don't think I've ever watched a show that was more obviously hanging on 1 1/2 seasons after plug should have been pulled. It's obvious they ran out of ideas in 2009. They also don't even care enough now to have it make any sense.

    E dumped Sloan because Dad wanted a pre-nup?

    Mrs. Ari dumped him because he's obsessed with work?

    Hey! How about if Ari's brother, who used to work at the White House and was a former congressman, gets elected mayor of Cleveland?

    We don't actually know for sure what happened to E and Sloan: in addition to the prenup there was also the little issue of Eric grabbing her father's company via, apparently, hostile takeover. And there could be more: we haven't heard anything about it from Sloan's point of view and E and the guys have a notoriously biased take on things.

    As for Ari and Mrs. A, that wasn't (just) about being obsessed with work. Remember all the stuff that happened last season, with Ari firing the agent to keep Mrs. A happy, then she (the agent) threatened to ruin him with information on how he harassed his employees, but decided not to, then something leaked out, and Ari freaked out at the restaurant and lost the NFL franchise, etc. etc.?

    It's just an approach for the new season.. they jumped three months until Vince got out of rehab. Surely all your questions will be answered in the next 7 episodes - what happened with Sloan? What happened with the Ari's? What happened with Johnny Banannas? Patience,grasshopper.

    It was her god-father Murray's company.

    It certainly seems to me that Sloan dumped Eric.

    Sloan must have dumped him or he would have taken his things out of her place when they split up.

    All I know from the Stern show is that Dice Clay is going to be a reoccurring character this season. This show hooked us all in season 1. Anyone starting at season 5 or higher would have given up on it by now.

    Post #9 in this thread seems to confirm that.

    Yes... it's no big secret --- it's in all the trailers running on HBO this week for the next episode.
