Bosco running. They ended it with Bosco running.

Thank you, John Wells.

It was a little clunky in spots, but it still got me good. I swear, that scene in the lobby when Swersky dismissed them, you could tell the actors were as sad and moved as their characters. And that was fine by me.

I had a feeling Cruz was gonna die, but it still shocked me. On her terms, all the way. But poor Manny, leaving roses at her grave! Awwww!

The second Carlos went to see Doc, I started bawling. Two seconds before Carlos said it, I said, "I miss them so much!"

And oh, oh, those last moments with Ty and Sully! Sully could hardly even speak; his partnership with Ty restored his faith in himself which had been gone since Ty's father died. And now it was over. *bawls*

The whole where-are-they-now was just perfect. I loved that they didn't forget DK and Billy and the rest of the bucket boys; they'd been on the show longer than some of the stars, after all. Swersky herding his 12 grandkids, heheheh. Kim and Jimmy have another baby! Carlos has a family, awwww! Sasha as a politician! Love it! Ty and Brendan in Anti-Crime, just like their dads. So VERY cool. (Except Brendan needs to lose the soul patch, pronto.) And ya know, as much as Fred and Faith's marriage was a huge part of the fabric of this show, I was glad to see her with Captain Miller at the end; that part of her life is over, and a new part is beginning. Seems fitting she would end up someone who not only doesn't resent her job, but who really can understand how very good she is at it. That was something Fred never could.

Of course, my very favorite: "Bosco, hell, Bosco's doing what he's always done. Going balls out, every job, every day, being the police." And running. RUNNING.


Then, to end it all, "Crap."

Hee! Sully, you ornery cuss, I'm going to miss the hell out of you.

Damn. I wish it wasn't over.

When is this show finally coming out on DVD? When, when??

I flipped by in time to catch the running and I laughed and laughed.

You know they did that for me.

And they credited DK and Billy as firefighters too(their real names and professions when not being actors I mean)! I don't recall seeing it that way before, so I'm going to assume they don't usually do that.

And Ty and Sully at the end? Oh, Ty's voice just breaking on saying good bye. And the hug.

And Holly tackling Carlos when he asked her to marry him?

I was kind of surprised that Kim and Jimmy didn't have a bigger role, but a camera pass over is fine with me.

Oh, I missed the credits! I'll have to re-watch. (Like I need an excuse. *g*)

Oy, that killed me. I loved the passing of the torch between them, and the way Sully ended up being almost a conduit between Ty and his dad. Ty Sr taught Sully the rookie, who then taught Ty Jr when he was a rookie, who's now teaching his own rookie. Perfect.

And Holly tackling Carlos when he asked her to marry him?

Hee! How 'bout when everyone was urging him to kneel behind her back! Bwa!

And Sully's line about Carlos having the family he never had. God. *bawls again*

I was kind of surprised that Kim and Jimmy didn't have a bigger role, but a camera pass over is fine with me.

I was cool with that too. Those two were never my favorites, so it was not big deal to me. And they showed they were still together and had a new baby, so really, that one shot told us everything anyway.

Man. The more I play it over in my head (which I have been doing all weekend), I realize the episode was an absolute valentine to long-time viewers. Which is the way to end a show, in my opinion. Particularly this show.

*sniffle* I miss it so much.

I was out on Friday night and I slept really late on Saturday. When I woke up, my first thought was that I needed to watch the TW finale before heading to J's so that we can talk about it, and then realized that you weren't going to be there. But of course, I had to watch it right away anyway. Throughout the episode, there was a lot of Bosco sitting and I thought how disappointed you must have been. But then we got to the where-are-they-now part and I just knew they had to show him running. Saving it for last and freeze-framing on his face was just perfect and I applauded and cheered. I almost called you to squee, and then I remembered you had family visiting. I cried when Holly said yes, when Carlos visited Doc, and again when Sully and Ty hugged at the end. It's too bad that the firefighters got so little attention at the end of the series, but they did right by my favorite characters. I'm happy, and yet so very, very sad.

I wish you had called me -- that would have been great! Check out the icon I just found. Bwahahahahahahaha!!!

I also got a great one of Holly and Carlos collapsed on the street, and Sully saying "Crap" at the end. All my favorite moments. *g*

With the firefighters, once Jimmy left, they didn't have any lead characters over there -- all of those guys, as much as I love them, were only part-time actors and fulltime firefighters. So even if they wanted to, they didn't have much choice in giving them big storylines. But I thought their shining moment acting-wise for all of them was when Doc shot the captain and held them hostage. DK especially was very good there. I was REALLY happy they gave them all nods at the end, though; I love when shows acknowledge long-time tertiary characters.

I'm happy, and yet so very, very sad.

Yep, exactly. I'm glad they gave us so much closure, though, and I'm especially glad the fire/attack was only the first twenty minutes of the show. If it had been the whole ep, I would have been pissed.

Hee! I love my new icons!

That Bosco icon is DA BOMB!!! And I'm glad you got icons of the other priceless moments - so great!

I don't tend to watch reruns of anything because I consume so very many shows, but I would love to own and re-watch the episode from Carlos' POV - classic! I'll have to scan an episode guide to find the name of the ep and then add it to my TiVo wishlist.
