I'm a sucker too, because I thought the ending was sweet. It did kind of bother me that Vincent remembered Eileen as Candy, Dorothy as Ashley, and Lori as CC's hoe (and an unhappy one at that). Poor Lori can't even find happiness in Vincent's version of the afterlife. I would have liked to see him at least remember Eileen as she was in the '80s, but whatever.Small nitpick. Vincent looked so ill and tired, I was sure they were going to have him die in the middle of Times Square, and join all his old friends. I'm also glad they didn't go there.
Too bad we never found out what happened to Larry Brown. David Simon said the actor was unavailable, which is fine, but it would have been nice to see at least a theater pamphlet hanging around Paul's place with his name and photo on it, or something. Even having Eileen find her actors through one of Larry's acting circles would have been a nice mention. He was one of the ones I was really looking forward to catching up with this season.
