That aside, it would not have been big twist if they fed it to us.
And I'll add .. whenever a show we like, have invested in, know the characters, etc, ends it's run, which they all do, the finale or even the final season, for that matter, always leaves us wanting for more, because it's like we've suddenly lost something .. which, of course, we have .. could it have been ended better.. ?? Of course, that can be said of any .. do many of us have a wish list of how this and that could have been handled .. ?? Certainly ..
However, IMO, the final season was great .. it tied it all together, it brought finality, the end of an era and more .. I hope that Boardwalk takes it's place among the list of TV's greatest shows ..
