Claudette Wyms: [reading Shane's suicide note] "I guess enough painkillers can make even the worst kind of hurt go away. The thing you need to know is that Mara was innocent, and Jackson was innocent. They didn't know what they were drinking and their last moments together were happy ones. They left the way I first found them, perfect and innocent. They were innocent and they're in Heaven now and we'll always be a family. The guilty ones are me and Vic. Vic led, but I kept following.

Three years - and still the very BEST there is
16 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What is there to say about this that hasn't already been said? Possibly the best conclusion to a drama series ever; the viewer's intelligence was not insulted for one minute. Even after everything, one could still feel Vic Mackey's pain and feel "sorry for his loss". What a terrific performance by Michael Chiklis to turn sympathies around so effectively. It was in all senses a classic tragedy. Ronnie Gardocki betrayed for the treacherous Corrine Mackey (though her role in this will, I suspect, be hotly debated). The Shield went out on top, in terms of quality. It was always an outstanding, well written, well acted show, but Season 7 was the best. The ending of the series could not have been done any better.

If you do not already have all the past seasons, they are well worth buying (or renting, at the very least). You can watch them instead of the standard network offerings, very, very few of which can hold a candle to The Shield.
