When we’re all gone, Davis, Treme will remain and all this will not be forgotten. Je me souviens.

This IS the Open Thread.
Both Donna’s on Rampart, and the Apple Barrel on Frenchmen, made it into Treme, and sadly, are no more. (Yeah the Apple Barrel still has the name but the new owners have taken away the soul of the place).
It’s so hard watching this, knowing it’s the end of it. Especially that they threw it on this month.
Well, next week it’s Mardi Gras. We’ve been trying to guess what who when etc. But in the end, New Orleans will keep rolling. Until the great climate change changes all of us and everything that’s anywhere near Big Water.
Deep comments from all above. But what keeps me wondering is why is Annie still front and center with her stupid looks and even stupider storyline
This episode hit hard. I lost my father earlier this year, and my daughter moved away from me to live with her mom in New Jersey. Treme is a show I have loved and followed since the beginning, especially loving the music and restaurant background. I see it go with a heavy heart, impressed as always with the quality and love that goes into every episode. It will stand the test of time, and also serves as a beautiful piece of cultural history. Bravo, David and Eric. Take a bow, fantastic crew. I’ll miss you a lot.
Loosa, you’re not the only one who has been impatient with the screen time devoted to Annie, but I think she may have earned her keep in the last episode.
New thread, please? Or were the Saints playing? Confession: Although I love New Orleans, I don’t follow the Saints. Also, I don’t like football because it’s too violent, but I like the Saints.
Beautiful and moving episode. So many scenes that were informative and heartfelt. Albert’s passing and Delmond’s new life. Davis keeping on, Hidalgo doing right by Janette, every scene with LaDonna, “Mac’s on the phone”, Antoine introducing the boys to Mr. Dr. John and the joy of seeing Dr. John himself. Treme is why I felt moved to move to LA, the most wonderful place I’ve lived. Thank you Mr. Simon and Mr. Overmeyer for creating a work of such tenderness and grace.
I cried. A lot.
Great final episode. Life goes on.
In past seasons, I enjoyed the post-episode comments and insights here perhaps even as much as the show. It was much quieter this season. I hope that everyone is well, and I just want to thank Maitri and the Krewe for this.
David Simon has also been known to stop by and if he does again this year, for his benefit, I just want to say I continue to be a huge fan of his. To you, Mr. Simon, please keep making great TV. I will be looking and listening for news of your next show, and then anticipating it with as much pleasure and expectation as I did Generation Kill and Treme.
