Arrow Six Feet Under -SERIES FINALE- *spoilers*

It's like the death of someone who's been sick for a long time and the end wasn't totally unexpected, but you still feel bad.

I was a little disappointed throughout but they made up for it the last few minutes. VERY fitting ending to a show much about death. Well done Alan Ball.

Alan Ball had said that EVERY loose end wouldn't be tied up.... Maggie at the Doctor? Another little Fischer perhaps?

I did love Billy literally talking Brenda to death.

I just finished watching it, so I haven't really had time to digest it, but my gut reaction is:

The ending was incredible.

That song is going to see a spike in music downloads.

It was really one of the best series endings in memory. It was a nice, classy way to deal with it. And very touching.

I just finished watching and I have to say that this was probably the best finale I have ever seen. I was crying from the dinner on through the end. Brilliant.

Loved Olivier telling Claire "You'll end up a soulless advertising photographer, which with your gifts, you'll be really good at."

Loved Nate in the doctor's smock Although, I didn't really care for his ranting to Brenda.

Billy & Ted's conversation about the Fishers hooking up the day one of their relatives died.

David & Dad, the stalker and Nate. So did you think he embraced the situation and realized some part of Nate was still looking out for him?

How could David and Keith together have enough money to buy out Rico? Keith was a cop and a security guard, how did he have enough savings to add up like that? Hmm, "Fisher(-Charles) & Sons," hehehe.

I'm glad Ruth & George cleared things up. I'm glad Ruth & Claire cleared things up, that was a very moving scene that really showed their mother-daughter bond. The scene with Nate and Nathaniel, Brenda and Willa completed that arc beautifully.

I loved the gay remodel on the Fisher house and the party to see Claire off to nowhere.

I loved the white screen music video with Nate in Claire's dream and all the other little touches of Nate with Claire.

Oh my, I wasn't expecting quite so much closure at the end with the 80 year fast forward.

That was great, really great. I was really emotional for the last 10 minutes, but what really got me was the last fade to white.

Keith got shafted in the death department, methinks.

Still, lots of closure, and a fitting end to a unique and powerful series. RIP, Six Feet Under.

Thumbs up

Wow. Powerful ending. Totally choked me up.

It was a very good way to wrap up the series.

My wife and I rewound the last 10 minutes (aka - Claire's drive) and noted the changes in the family. Looks like Dave and Keith's sons had partners - one gay the other straight (with his own son). Looks like Dave has a new partner after Keith was shot. My wife was happy that it looks like Brenda got remarried and was pregnant again.

The ending got me to think about things we see and experience in our lives and then what we miss. Then I totally broken down You see it got me thinking that my mom never got to see me get married or have our daughter (she died 10 years ago), and my father in-law will never get to meet our current (unborn) child (he died 12 days ago).

It is not often (ie never!) that a TV program can make me become an emotional wreck!

As I said in the beginning, the ending was powerful stuff.

Six Feet Under, RIP.

I didn't think about it until you mentioned it, but in fact... they did re-connect on the day of her mother's funeral... interesting foreshadowing.

That seemed to me like it was supposed to be the younger foster son. (The older one was on the right, with an hispanic (?) wife, and child.) That was an unexpected and charming twist. But it fit well and was handled with class.

No... last we saw of him was at Ruth's funeral. The older dude with the black woman (in the background at Claire's wedding) wasn't George.

I saw that guy sitting next to him eating at the picnic, and thought the same thing, but it wasn't made 100% clear. He was just eating... it's not like they were holding hands or anything. Who knows. Another loose end, I suppose.

Wow, I thought the exact opposite. They looked older but remained recognizable. I think viewers might be so "used" to seeing them in one way that any makeup or alteration is especially jarring. I didn't see it as overdone at all.






That said...

I am still numb from the last 10 minutes of this finale. After the dinner, when they toasted Nate... I was prepared for closure. When Claire dreamed of Nate singing that song, "I just want to celebrate... another day of LIFE!" ...

...I was prepared for the closing credits.




...and then Claire said goodbye.

And got in her car.

And drove.


That closing montage... of every family member's final moments. Wow. I can honestly say I have never been affected quite as profoundly by a TV show as I was by this episode. These last few 6FU episodes have really hit me. Hard.

And tonight, I was transfixed. Keith's death... my mouth was agape. Ruth slipping away... Rico too, after a long life of success...

I was bawling like a baby.



I'm watching it again now. I'm stunned. So very sad. And yet strangely inspired.

I thought Federico got the shaft. Yeah he was on a cruise ship (of the future!) but it was a very far off shot. Also, we really are left with him being bought out (presumably) and going on his way. No idea how the Diaz family works out.

When we saw Maggie at the doctors we both thought, another kid. But now that you mention it, I think she might have been there for other reasons. Although I thought she did something with a museum?

FYI: At Claire's wedding, it was the Older of the 2 boys that had a wife and kid. The younger one had a "partner".

After seeing the family celebrate the purchase of their own business, with Vanessa excited and supportive... I like to believe it was the beginning of a very lucrative career for him. He had his head screwed on straight, was a hard worker, and was passionate about building something.

He was enjoying a cruise with Vanessa... that tells me he was finally retired after enjoying great success.

I think that it was probably consistent in that Frederico was not a Fisher and after he left for the other funeral home he probably became the old friend you only see at weddings or funerals. IE a distent memory therefore a distant death shot.
Keith I think represented that the probability odds that someone you know will die a violent death. They could have made it any of the other characters like Claire in NYC but her death was obviously the symbol of the circle of life.

Having just gone through my fathers hospice and sitting their doing a think forward on my wife, it was pretty tough to take.

Or maybe his old age makeup didn't look even close to good and a long distance shot was their only choice.

I was pretty good until the end and then pow it just all hit me like a ton of bricks piling up and I sobbed until quite a while after my tivo stopped it and asked me if i wanted to delete it.

I knew that it would move me and that it was going to affect me but I didnt expect this. All of the different endings, all the lives we loved, all gone. And the ******* lawyer who turned out to be a kick ass dood who was there for Claire.

I was particularly taken aback by Keith and his end. He didnt deserve that, he tried so hard to be good.

The whole ending still has me pretty um I dunno upset and just kind of confused. I gave these people my life and my time no matter what for 5+ years. I put off so much to be there when they aired and now they are gone. Forever.

And I watched it alone. Probably a good thing, I am sure my exgf would have laughed at me for crying as their endings rolled by.

I hoped that Entourage would bring me back up a bit but it didnt. I seriously need something funny to even things out a bit because this was some heavy stuff.

Surprised no one mentioned it but did anyone notice David and Keiths elder son holding hands with a man during Claires wedding. The one thing that I will always remeber about 6FU was the attention to detail and the little things that you dont realize until you watch the show two or three times. The ending was perfect, an absolutley brilliant finale.

Yeah, I need to go back and re-watch the last scene. Very moving from the music to the imagery, very emotional. When you have watched every episode from day 1, you feel like a part of that sick twisted family.

Very sad to see that show go...there is so much more that could be done
