    Well, it definitely felt rushed and too tying-everything-up-with-a-bow. Vince getting married? What's with that?

    I was glad they did the tag at the end with Ari. It wasn't believable that he could suddenly quit and be happy. I liked the opera singer thing, though.

    I don't really care about E and Sloane.

    Tol' ya!

    Exactly how do you "quit" a company that you own 51% of?

    When did Vince make so much money that he can charge a $4.5M ring? They never even got back into his house.

    We should do a poll to ask where E took his jet with Sloan.

    BTW, It's not routine to do simultaneous take offs on parallel runways at Van Nuys or any other airport. They had to agree to a formation flight.

    That was, perhaps, the least satisfying of a finale of any series I have ever watched. :(

    Agreed. I was hoping for the best, but expecting the worst, and that's what we got. I don't even like the set up for a movie. I'll add more later.

    On the other hand, who can stop you? :)

    I think the implication was that Babs would buy Ari out of the company.

    I thought the ring was 1.5M, not 4.5M?

    Anyway, he had the money. Just a few minutes before that we discovered he made 14M on his Avion stock, remember?

    I thought the ring was 1.4m

    Whole ep..wait.. the whole season was meh.


    So that thing at the end of credits with Ari is for a movie? I was hoping for a spinoff with just him. And maybe Turtle and Drama.

    With the exception of Nip/Tuck, I would have to agree.

    That was a phoned in ending if I ever saw one, definitely the worst in recent memory.

    I imagine the simultaneous takeoffs at the end was a bit of movie magic/copy paste.

    How are we supposed to be satisfied? Vince married a girl we don't know at all. All we saw of their romance was a few scenes of her looking at Vince with a tolerant but disappointed expression. How can we care?

    Really, it's the same with Sloane. Eric and Sloane spent this season mired in ugliness and the previous one being a boring couple. If this was a couple we were pulling for, I don't remember it.

    Ari's wife dresses weird. Her clothes wear her.

    Seriously. The last time she spoke directly to him, she showed some real (and intelligent) disdain.

    He makes a video that showcases a gallery of women he's slept with (that still like/respect him) and that's supposed to win her over? :confused:

    Then he aparrently takes her on the best 24-hour date ever (and they have sex) and now she's ready to get married. Why the rush? And when did her personality change that she'd go along with any of that? What a cop-out that the audience doesn't even get to see any of that date. We're just supposed to imagine the "best date ever." :rolleyes:

    I've watched this show from the beginning and I feel seriously let down by this finale. Boo. :( :thumbsdown:

    Nah. They can do silmultaneous takeoffs. It's just not routine. Formation flight is allowed as long as both pilots are aware and participating. You can be sure that both jets are owned by the same company, too.

    For takeoffs it would work but for landings not so much. Only one six right at Van Nuys is the long runway, 8000 feet vs. 4000 feet. Landing with 4000 feet looks like a on roof top to a jet.

    Hush. Her front in that torn dress was no great shakes, but for way-too-skinny girl named Perry she has an amazingly nice tush.

    Seems to me they're planning an Ari spinoff.

    I agree, of course with the rest of you. The finale would have been 100% better if they left out the surprise wedding. What total bullcrap. Like everyone in the cast is going to jump up and fly to Paris the same day... like they all have nothing else to do (well, for Turtle that might be true). Slone and E -- forgetaboutit -- they are both puke material now. The only really interesting story lines left are Drama and Turtle, and they didn't even touch on either of them. What a waste. Ari's plot is getting really tired.. as if he would ever really change. In the last scene at the beach house, as soon as Melissa left, I said to my g/f "a phone's going to ring".. and sure enough...

    Can you really see the movie starting with Vince as a happily married man? Not a chance. I think they're going to have to kill off Sasha one way or another. Or she cheats on Vince and he dumps her. In any case, obviously they all end up in NYC for the movie. The movies are going to end up just as good as the "Sex and the City" movies -- garbage. It's really disappointing how they killed off the entire series like this. Very disappointing.

    I do find it kinda funny how both Larry David and Entourage all end up in Paris at the end of both of their finales.

    You're right -- SATC ALSO ended up in Paris on their series finale. Yikes.. that's a disturbing trend.

    This finale was weird. Felt entirely cartoonish, so much more than any episode in the entire series' run.

    Sloan's dad is hunting E; he wants to kill him.

    All it takes is one speech from Vince and Sloan's ready to take him back? What happens when she finds out that he did, in fact, sleep with her ex-stepmom (multiple times, let's not forget.)


    It was weird when Scott Caan (E's partner) is invited to go to Paris and he says "no, I can see this is just family, so..."

    They didn't invite Billy? I half expected every bit player and guest star to show up on the runway.

    My goodness, what a cheesy, half-baked, let down of a finale. Totally phoned in.

    Maybe it's an inside joke at HBO.

    I do wonder about the Ari bit at the end. Is that a lead-in for a series spin off? The movie?

    Part of me just hopes that was the writers' way of painting a picture of Ari's permanent punishment, his spot in hell, for his wrongdoings... stuck between marital/family bliss, and the temptation of being "god," running a media conglomerate. And that we, the audience, are meant to imagine him stuck in that purgatory limbo forever.
