    It is the style of comedy.

    That finale was brilliant. The show will deservedly win Comedy series, Director, Writing, Actress and Supporting Actor (Hale) for that episode. Gary at the end literally slayed me…. And I wouldnt be surprised if Anna Chlumsky takes Supporting Actress too. I am gonna miss this show so much.

    The 2017 version of the series finale features Tom James winning the nomination and the presidency due to Jonah taking too long to respond to Selina’s offer to be his VP. In the flash-forwards Richard asks Selina to be his VP.

    I like what they did way more than the originally proposed direction.

    Buddy’s reaction when Selina told him she’d ban gay marriage was a highlight in this episode lmao

    I loved what becomes of Richard Splett (played by Sam Richardson). That was a really good character.

    Could Sam Richardson land a surprise nom?

    Wow. The mediocre lead-up was completely worth this stunning finale. Everyone was on high gear, and I’m now thinking that Chlumsky could take supporting actress after all (and she would be an extremely deserving winner, as that scene where she begs Selina was EVERYTHING). I was just about to move Maisel into my winning slot, but this just clinched Veep’s place. I thought that the first six episodes of this season were depressingly okay, but this last episode was FLAWLESS. I feel as though I got the ending from each character that I wanted, and Selina’s arc was completed flawlessly. Gary and the lipstick at the end was so sad, seeing as how he loved her all the way until the end, but seeing how Selina was torn and alone in the White House was just absolutely heartbreaking. Louis-Dreyfus’ performance in this show is the greatest, comedy or drama, that television has ever seen. PERIOD. She has Emmy number seven in the BAG and WHOLLY deserves it. The writing was phenomenal, and Selina’s scathing rant against Rhea Seehorn knocked my socks off. Selina Meyer is one of the most exquisite monsters ever written. The part where Catherine and Marjorie find out about the gay marriage was HILARIOUS, and it was so cathartic seeing Marjorie FINALLY snap, and I only wish that we had gotten more from that scene. I feel happy and devastated and terrified and in awe all at once, but most of all I feel satisfied. This show certainly had its ups and downs, but overall, it stands as one of the best comedies television has ever produced, and I hope that this finale sticks in people’s minds, as it is one of the best (if not THE best) series finale I have ever seen. Ten out of ten. Bravo.

    Sam Richardson would be a more deserving nominee over Tony Hale and Sam Walsh

    The return of Sue was such a highlight for me

    Sam Richardson has been emmy worthy since season 4, but I don’t think he has a chance.

    Finale was wonderful, but I still think the show should have ended after season five.

    Regardless, JLD earned her 179th Emmy with that episode.

    I think my favorite part was when Selina called Marjorie “Peppermint Patty.”

    Wow.  SO funny, and a emotional punch I didn’t see coming.  This was the best episode of Veep and one of the best series finales ever.  Not just the dialogue and the performances, but it wrapped up the series and the characters SO well.  Selina got what she wanted, but sold her soul in every way possible (each one more stunning than the last!), in the process completely wiping out her inner circle.   It couldn’t have been more perfect.

    JLD is now a stone cold lock for the Emmy if she wasn’t already, clearly her best performance in the series.  The cast as a whole is such a collection of talent, but the one I’m really rooting for to finally break through with a win is Chlumsky, it would be well deserved.

    The series had already jumped the shark when they treated the freeing of Tibet with as much nuance as re-naming a Post Office. But, this final season was complete garbage.

    Did the writers forget that Selina is a member of the “liberal party”? Having Steve King and Mike Pence finish in the top 5 for delegates is quite the creative license. This winning would be worse than the Modern Family reign of terror.

    (I assume from the majority of positive comments here/elsewhere that too many people did not have the strength to hate-watch to the end)

    Season 5’s finale would have worked as a series finale. A cruel one that isn’t as satisfactory as what we got. Season 6 of Veep tarnished its initial faultless legacy.
