Which is exactly why I love the show (Rescue Me) so much. I really did start crying at the beginning of the final episode, shouting “NO! NO! NO!!!!” almost punching out my computer screen I was so mad. But then he pulled the classic Gavin fast one on us. I can’t believe that shit!!! Poor Lou though. I couldn’t figure out why everyone was so happy after he died. Crazy. I’m still really sad that the series is over. At least I still have my collection to rewatch and relive over and over again. I love you Tommy Gavin (Denis Leary) and the rest of the 62 truck crew. RIP Lou.
I was stoked when they played “Dirty Old Town” by the Pogues at the end. I have always loved the Pogues, and that is my favorite song by them. Now everytime I hear that song I will always remember Lieutenant Ken Shea, and the rest of the firefighters at 62 truck. I will miss you all!!
