Chase delivered the "high spot" he seemed to think fans wanted to see - Phil getting whacked, and then doing it in morbid fashion.

That's what the series feel to in the last several seasons - high spots attempting to distract the fans from how vapid it all had become.

Tony going off on the riff about Mom infronto of AJ's shrink, while Carm looking at him like "What the FUCK?!?! This SHIT *still*?!?!" pretty much summed up the whole series.

By the way... the various post mortums on the Final Episode all seem to have some line about the series being the best of all-time, or the most important of all-time, or some such nonsense. It's getting to the Ric Flair level where it's been said so much that the media is starting to take it for granted, and you almost can't speak up to say that the series has sucked for sometime now.

The Flair comparison is right... on several levels. ;)

The difference is that Tony is done after last night, while Flair is still in the ring. ;)

I hated the ending when it happened.
I love it now.
It was either kill Tony-or let the family live on-and killing him would have been pure formula.
Chase had the whole country go "What the fuck?" like a choir.
We were all his dogs.
