One episode to go, seem to have a lot to fit into that last episode or is it going to be one of those series that let's the viewer decide the outcome? I hope not, I want one to succeed or all too fail, don't leave me hanging!

My thoughts that Roman was going to be victorious look a little silly now...

I won’t post any spoilers. All I have to say is that’s the best finale I’ve ever seen, and one of the best TV shows that’s ever been made.

Everything was perfect. I look forward to hearing everyone’s views.

No spoilers, but what an ending so many layers and twists. Will come back later when people have caught up.

Me and Mrs Eggs looked at each other with a wry smile at the end of that.

Very satisfactory. :winker:

In terms of consistent quality from start to end, probably my favourite ever series (officially pipping The Wire).

I don’t know if it’s the best show of all time (it’s certainly in the conversation) but I reckon it’s at least the best written show of all time.

Been a few days now so going with spoilers.......






The ending with Shiv & Tom, what did you make of it?

My assumption was that Shiv was getting back with Tom, and almost now scared of him as he won, and is the new daddy? Missus reckons she done it as she just wants to be desperately close to the power seat, so a power move, where mine is just daddy issues.

What an absolutely amazing programme, as good as anything that I have ever seen. So many incredible characters/performances, I found Jeremy Strong utterly convincing.

I think my favourite bit overall was the dinner when they decided who was going to carry the can for the cruises debacle - "Tom with Greg sprinkles".

I'd say both Clackers.

She was the most vile of the lot......then Greg.

Top ending, nobody wins (not even Tom IMO) and all of their dreams are doomed. I cannot believe how successful a show without a single likeable character can be, just great from all involved

Do we think Kendall kills himself at the end? That was my take away from that one final shot.
