From Season 4 onward, I had been trying to come up with every damn scenario as to how they would end Rescue Me. I got some of it right and I was way off on other parts. But before I address that, I gotta start off with the second to last episode of the series. For a show about Firefighters, there really wasn't a lot of fighting in the way we get in the movie Backdraft. Yes, the series would definitely remind us that this is a show about those brave people that run into buildings, while everyone else is running out. But we never got an episode that was all about their chosen profession. That is until the second to last episode. Because it was longer than normal, immediately you know they are going to make it an epic one and that of course means someone is going perish. The building explodes. That's your cliffhanger leading into the Series Finale.

Prior to watching the last episode, I of course start running in my head who it could be and then I started thinking about what the series is about. It's about remembering the fallen souls of 9/11 and how they lost their 'Brothers'. Now we can hear the term 'Brothers' all day long and we will never truly be able to measure what the survivors lost. Immediately I came to realization that in order to impart to the viewers watching the series, killing off the entire crew would come close to getting across what was lost. We spend all this time watching Rescue Me and growing close to characters that we love. Sure enough, that's exactly what we get at the start of the last episode. Only thing is, they turn around and flip it on us.

Turns out that it's Lou that is gone, saving the rest of the crew. As somber as this episode is regarding his funeral and everything that comes with that, this episode has some of the funniest gags ever. I found it odd that I was laughing out loud a few times. As for how they actually ended the series, I did a face-palm when the last scene played out. It made perfect sense that it would be the bookend of the very first scene in episode one. One last thing, with Tommy's ability to talk to the dead, I knew and patiently waited for the final scene with him.....and Lou. I saw it coming a mile away and it was....perfect. I highly recommend Season 6 and Season 7 (The Final Season) as a Rent.

One thing I did expect to see when the gang set out to spread Lou's ashes, my money was on them taking his ashes to Ground Zero so that he could be buried with his brothers. Also, the Final Season is heavy on the 9/11 and Ground Zero scenes, so it would have made sense in more ways than one to do so.

I almost forgot to mention that I loved the inside Joke involving Cindy Crawford. Any fan of Dennis Leary will of course get it right away.
