    Seems like it went really fast. Would like to have seen Narcisse suffer more...

    Pretty much a bleak (but pretty... the show always looks pretty...) ending to a show that was often hopelessly bleak.

    It's a show where everyone seems to get what's coming to them, so fitting, I guess...

    Totally forgot about Jimmy's son

    Had a feeling the kid would play a part in Nuckys death but didn't make that connection.

    Great ending. No Sopranos type bullshit.

    I loved it ....but didn't like the way nucky was killed by Tommy

    IRL nucky road off into the sunset a very rich happy man, would have liked to have seen him and Margaret relaxing somewhere with drinks

    Otherwise, this show is now the best series ever produced, yes....even better than the sopranos

    I had predicted that nucky goes to jail for killing the mob boss to save the nephew in an ironic twist. They departed from historical accuracy with their ending

    Yeah I get that vyb.

    It was obvious last week that he was going to be the one that took Gillian Darmody to the Commodore when she was just a kid. I really thought it'd end with him redeeming himself by helping her out and then he'd run off with his ex after shorting the stock.

    Nucky was always just very loosely based on the real Nucky, different last names. Anyways, I liked it.

    I like how they timed explaining how Nucky aided the Commodore in his pedo activities with his death.

    By the grandson of his first victim.

    I thought the real Nucky also did a little time for tax evasion (like Capone). But he did his time, got out, and then lived happily ever after.
