Advertisements Far and away the best show ever. I can't wait to see the finale, but at the same time am dreading that will officially be the end. As pointed out earlier, I'm sure there won't be some ridiculous "fade to black" crap that a certain other show did. I am betting that Vic has something in mind to get Ronnie to run. I can't see him just allowing Ronnie to take the fall. Or perhaps Vic takes a bullet in some plan to keep Corrine and Ronnie out of trouble. Corrine is already not in trouble, but Vic hasn't figured that out yet...I'm sure he does at some point. I say that Victor S. Mackey will still be alive at the end of the show. As for Shane...I am guessing that Mara has to die, she's too much of a liability at this point. Shane has always been sort of a cockroach, in that no matter what, he keeps coming back, so I'm not sure that we see him die, unless he does finally kill himself. At this point, the only way I can see Vic killing Shane would be in order to protect Ronnie. Ronnie would be more likely to kill Shane. Jackson will either be left behind to be found, dropped at a hospital, or in one final act to make himself even more hated, Shane kills him and then gets ready to kill himself in guilt...only to be interrupted. Shane is the odds on favorite to die. Obviously either the feds or Claudette will go after Ronnie, since he is not immune yet. Ronnie will likely be just slightly displeased that Vic signed his own deal. Ronnie will either be arrested for killing Shane, or on his way to Mexico. Claudette will finally have her medical condition and ever-increasing stress level get the best of her, and snap in some spectacular fashion. The killer kid will come after Dutch, but my guess is that, at the end, Dutch will be promoted to run The Barn. Don't forget that the Dutchman has a plan. I have no thoughts on how things wrap up for Acevada...he's really become such a minor character that it doesn't really matter that much. He's just there. Same for Julian and Danny. I'm sure they'll obviously be heavily involved in the story, but some things just can't be wrapped up.
