Another solid season.

Hopefully they aren't writing Ian and Jimmy out of the show. I'm sure Ian will be around, he will probably find a way to bail out of the army at some point. I think they'll find a way to bring Jimmy back to but they'll have to come up with a good excuse for him still being alive.

So many potential characters that have excuses for not being on next season: Jimmy, Ian, Steve, Jody, and Karen. Of course, they'll all probably end up being back! There's not much use for Sheila without Jody or Karen around...maybe she'll be gone too. They didn't bring Monica back at all this season.

I think I'm a little slow...at first I thought that V's mom had gotten pregnant by someone else other than Kevin. But she just got pregnant very early in the process with Kevin.

I think its a shame this show doesnt get the love that Walking Dead and others get... it's been consistently one of my favorite shows this year

How many Karen's are on this show anyway? Unless you meant Shiela?

Man, I hate having to wait until January for this to come back! I really hope Emmy Rossum gets an Emmy nod for this season. She's really fantastic.

It's been great this year.
This episode felt like a series finale.

Honestly, when I was watching the episode I also thought this was a series finale. So is Jimmy / Steve dead?

To be determined... signs point to yes... but he's probably doing some bitch work in Brazil.

Hopefully they are. Two of the most boring characters. They only exist at this point as a way to exhibit Jimmy's bulging forehead veins every time he whines about his situation & Ian's cloying lovelorn looks at Mickey. I've had to fight the urge to fast forward through their scenes all season.

Confirmed tonight. Justin Chatwin (Jimmy) will not return to the show.

According to this tweet, it's confirmed that Jimmy is dead.

This Twitter account is from a TV Guide writer.

Holy shit, really? I wonder if that was always the plan or if Chatwin opted to not return thus killing off the character.

According to another tweet I read the writers debated using Jimmy's decapitated head in a polo match among the Brazilians. It would have been a tag to this finale.

They said Chatwin could appear in an episode or 2 in a flashback.

Well...that sucks. But last year's storyline didn't do much for me. Maybe this will breathe some new life. I wonder if they'll ever dare to have Fiona leave, like on the original series.

Bummed that Jimmy won't be returning. His storyline last season wasn't terribly exciting, but he added to the ensemble.

I'll forgive his absence as long as Fiona starts dating Estefania.
