Beautiful ending to a beautiful show. Weeds will truly be missed. I really enjoyed the final scene, and overall I think the finale did offer some closure that we didn't get last year in season 7.

Weeds started out great and after around the 3rd season it really got dumb. It became much to dark. I still watch it but "The Big C" kinda took it's place as my favorite. Now "Big C" season 3, just like Weeds, started losing it's direction. It seems 2 seasons are good enough for most of these type of shows before they start losing their originality. After season 2 they just look for stuff to drag them out and play off their previous popularity.

I'd tend to agree with those overall assessments.

I never got into Weeds, but my wife did and I'm sure she'll miss it. I like to watch Dexter instead, although it's getting a bit long-in-the-tooth also.

Maybe Showtime is starting to revamp their original line-up in order to compete with the likes of Boardwalk Empire, Boss or Magic City. I don't think they can make a good showing of it with just Homeland as a flagship of sorts.

Its also been confirmed that Season 8 will be the final season of Dexter. Which would be next years season.

Dexter Season 8 will be the last; producers know exactly how it's going to end (may contain spoilers)

We really agree. Thought it was the best finale in recent years. Not as good as, say, M*A*S*H back when, but well done.

Yeah, that's ok. I was starting to feel sorry for the writers. Last season would have been ok, too.

I liked the finale but I wasn't over the moon about it. It almost wrapped up too neatly for me.

And where the hell is Celia????

I thought about that through the whole season. But that didn't cross my mind on the last episode and you just brought it up.

Now I'm :confused: as well!

I was questioning where Celia Hodes was, though. ;)

Dean was at the party and we heard about Bruce, but I was hoping they would at least toss in a line about Celia just so we had some idea what she was doing "now".

Yeah, I was hoping to see or at least hear about Celia. They even brought back Doug's son Josh, and he was only in the first episode. Celia was a main cast member for the first few years.

It was a funny episode but I thought it was pretty disconnected. It felt more like "Weeds: The Movie" to me.

I really liked how it wrapped. If they would have tried to tie every loose end it would have been a mess.
