It's been renewed for another season since october.

Here is an interview with Terence Winter on the finale and future of show. Also at the end of the interview there's a link for a short interview with Pitt.

I really applaud the writing staff's decision to kill Jimmy.

It seems like there are a few different camps here when it comes to criticizing this show. Those who dislike certain developments because it goes against whatever preference they have and those who dislike certain developments because they think they are bad writing in terms of continuity or mechanics.

I like Jimmy too, but fuck, it's not really affecting to lose a character that's written so no one gives a shit about them. Plus, considering how integral Jimmy was believed to be to the show, having him die serves a really great purpose in terms of mechanics. You now know they are willing to kill off main characters. This creates REAL tension.

Jimmy's death makes sense from a story point of view. He was a terrible gangster and made too many enemies. He was erratic and couldn't stick to his decisions. He was never going to last long in that business.

But I also think he had to die because he was taking over the show, and the show was supposed to be about Nucky. He's the Mercutio of the show.

I missed that during the first watching. Oh, well. I guess we are done reenacting the Oedipus saga.

Were you cooking while the show was on? They made the second shot and its entry wound quite obvious.

I'm more intrigued about what happens post land donation by MArgaret than a post Jimmy AC. What a fucking bitch

I am disappointed. Killing jimmy off turned me off for season 3. Even though he is a "kinda" made up character he gave the show some horsepower. Richard can fade off and so can Jimmy's, slut mother.
Chalky got what he wanted and he simply isn't important. Van Alden fled which is crap because historically he was a key figure in bringing Nucky down.
Once Nucky finds out what Margaret did he will slap her around and that's that. Nucky isn't going to be able to take on the Catholic church.
Slop is right. It seemed like the writing was done in away that said "yup we are finished , fuck you very much. Goodnight".

Great ending to the season. The two previous episodes were just so-so but this delivered a strong finish to the season with lots of "What will happen now" questions. Jimmy's character will be hard to fill.
