Till I burn up
If you haven’t finished out this season, please go here.
Obviously, there’s a lot to be said about this semi-bombastic finale. I’ve got plenty of thoughts on where the kids ended up, most of them having to do with how Nay was actually the most complete human being of them all. But there’s some business to be tended to, and so my final H&H post will be a brief, respectful one.
1. Full circle: here’s the second post I ever did. The theme remains my Wire-watching credo, moreso than ever now.
2. A celebration of my absolute favorite character.
3. The song I’d been planning to post since I accidentally caught this spoiler more than a month ago.
The way it actually went down, though, this doesn’t quite fit. I’d anticipated a tear-jerker, at least for as devoted a fan as myself. Instead though, it was noble and kind of gratifying. He never seemed like he should’ve been somewhere else, or cried out to be rescued. Not at that moment, not this season, and never over the course of all fifty episodes total. For better or worse, he did what he did, made as much of it as he could, and went out with a combination of defiance and fatalism. A soldier indeed.
REMEMBER THE GOOD TIMES!!!!!!!!
This has been a blast, and lord willing we’ll be reborn in time for Season 5. Look for others to share their concluding goodies in the next couple of days.
