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.

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.

I agree, the ending was great. Depressing but great.

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 couldn't help it , but I was crying through the whole last 10 minutes....

I felt the worst for Keith. That upset me the most, although it should have been the most predictable.

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.

I thought the same thing, but then wasn't Maggie a pharmaceutical rep though?

I made the exact comment about Billy talking Brenda to death to my wife when we saw the scene. She could hardly hear me over her own sobbing....sigh....

Glad we TiVo'd, we spent a lot of time freezing the flash-forwards to see who was still shown and piecing together a lot of what happened to everyone. One knock one the forwards, I didn't think the aging make-up was done very well.

The part I thought was most poignant was Claire's death, with all the pictures on the wall, but then zooming in on her eyes, which were clearly blinded by cataracts. Sad ending for someone who's whole life was tied up with visual art. Then a nice transition back to her current eyes.

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.

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.

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.

Thanks for that, my Tivo cut of the last minute of the credits so I did not see the title. I now have the track downloading from Yahoo! Music..

I did notice the foster kid had a lover at Claire's wedding. Ooooh, Claire looked soooo beautiful.

I thought in the very beginning that baby Willa died since they did a white screen with her name and the year. It took me a minute to see that it was her birth year, phew!!!

Wow, what a great ending. I'm still kinda teary thinking and typing about it. All the deaths in the ending were damn, i don't even know how to explain it. I don't know how I will feel when my siblings die. You expect your parents to die first, but not a sibling, spouse or child. Life is so painful.

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

A couple of other things I noticed in the flashforwards. Maya had her monkey on her lap at David and Keith's wedding, so Brenda's mother's attempt to replace it didn't quite work. Also the name of the security company that Keith was working for was "Charles Security", so I am assuming that he owned the company.

Very powerful. During the death montage scenes, I mourned for the characters but also had a powerful feeling wondering how and when my husband, myself, my my parents, my siblings will pass over.
