I thought it was ridiculous too, the show has serious flaws , to me, the highpoint of last episode was Ashford and Bridges, I know his storyline is cliche as hell but I think he just nails it. Virginia’s son is probably going to die and she will get a hell of a tape, but it will just be a mess if, is her son also a fiction character? Would the writers create such a cliched storyline (another) just the sake of impact? If that is the case, I don’t think I am coming back for season 4.September 16, 2015 at 2:59 pm #347962

This might be the season I abandon the series for good. Horrible episode. Judy Greer deserved so much better than this thankless character. I’ll come back for Beau Bridges and hopefully Allison Janney’s return. Other than that, where the show’s going next looks truly awful in the previews. Next!September 23, 2015 at 2:00 pm #347965
the show is basically dead, weird end for such a promising series.September 25, 2015 at 5:38 pm #347966
It is all over the place, I do like Judy Greer, one hell of a talented actress, too bad the writers lost their shit on this season.September 26, 2015 at 5:30 pm #347967
So, it hasn’t improved, then? I haven’t seen the last several episodes. Bailed a while back… the last one I saw was the episode before the gorilla one. I was hoping I hadn’t quit prematurely, but it sounds like I didn’t. I admit that I never loved this show, so it was a chore watching as it was… but it was approaching unwatchable this season, for me. Ugh. Bring on Fargo.September 27, 2015 at 3:16 am #347968

Beau Bridges must submit, by the current rules, in Supporting Actor category after tonight’s episode (being in 6/12 episodes, 50% or more).
Will he still get nominated for his performance in a different category?September 28, 2015 at 6:14 pm #347970
The show is a mess, but Sheen is revelatory. His performance in the finale is wonderful…
Everything else was middling to meh.September 28, 2015 at 8:16 pm #347971
Martin Sheen and Caitlin Fitzgerald really brought it in this finale. Everything else was very dull.September 29, 2015 at 12:41 am #347972
This felt like a very odd place to end the season. I don’t get the writers intentions at all with how the show is progressing versus the actual histories of these real-llfe people. Bill and Libby divorcing is a good arc for season four, but Paul is just gone now when he recently proposed to Libby? Was that b/c of the police investigations on Bill? Josh Charles is only a guest star, so where does that leave a possible Virginia/Dan marriage? It was a strong episode for Michael Sheen. I wonder if he ever gets in Lead Actor in a Drama Series with some open slots available next year. The centerpiece here was between Bill and Libby at the police station. It’s been a long time coming with Bill finally telling Libby the truth about his affair with Virginia. I was hoping so much that Libby would also tell him about Robert and Dan, but it didn’t happen. Regardless, this would be a great time to get around to nominating Caitlin Fitzgerald for making the most of the middling material given to her. Lizzy Caplan, on the other hand, hasn’t been rising about the material much at all. They’ve taken such an initially strong and dynamic character with Virginia and made her so needy and whatever now. Ditch all of these men and get on with the work already! Annaleigh Ashford provided some nice comic relief. No last scene with Sarah Silverman or follow-up with the baby? Bartram getting with the radiologist guy was interesting. The writing could have set that all up more gracefully. He resigned from his job a few episodes back over the bar fight, and that looked to be the end of their arc. Now they’re a couple? Hmmm. I miss Allison Janney. I doubt Beau Bridges makes the cut outside of guest and into supporting actor. Not sure what I think of Emily Kinney’s turn or if she was right for a role like this. I honestly thought that that religious nut guy would blow up the clinic after he met Virginia at the elevator. Not another mention of Henry. I was expecting to hear about his fate in Vietnam. Such a poor and misguided season, and it’s all in the writing. I really don’t know about returning for next season.

No, he is not getting a nom and he isn’t good because the character and the show’s writing ultimately has been pretty horrible, the guy is a good actor, could be name checked but won’t be deserved.
