I was starting to worry about you, first post in the thread since....you know.
Hey, at least we get an Eli/Van Alden/Capone bonerfest in Chi-town now.
It's been a busy week, so I didn't get a chance to watch it until last night. The ending was actually spoiled a little for me which was originally infuriating, but now, I think it may be for the best. I probably would have had to call in sick today if I didn't have that preparation.

Oh man. Wow. What a finale. What a season. I hated that some things happened but I thought those things made 100% logical sense. All the Chalky/Richard/Narcisse stuff was heartbreaking but totally felt organic and built up. Wow. Feeling sad but also really excited for the next season.
The time jump in the new season is pretty jarring. It seems like they are just trying to wrap this show up in a hurry.
It's too bad. The new season starts in 1931 at the start of the Depression. So that means Rothstein is already dead (he was one of my favorite characters; it's such a crime that he wasn't even given a send off), and Al Capone already pulled the St. Valentines Day massacre.. Hoping we get some flashbacks of those two events... But with only 8 episodes; I kind of doubt it.

Don't know I feel about this show ending on Sunday. Been watching this show since 2nd season aired back in 2011 (?) It's been a pleasant slow-burn for me, only binge watching season 1 and half of season 2.
Really having mixed feelings on the final season. I mean, I think it's good? Definitely not how I anticipated it to end. Loved how Van Alden went out, but hated how they wrapped up Chalky's character. Last Sunday was pretty climactic, and I don't really know what they'll do with the finale. Maybe more emphasis on Nucky's past. How Gillian ended up with the Commodore. Maybe we'll see a bit of child Jimmy? Has anyone else been watching the final episodes?
