It's good, but the worst of all five IMO.

Each episode has flashbacks scenes telling the story of the young Enoch mixed with present day ones and characters, which is sometimes confusing and all the characters that made it through the first four seasons are dropping like flies.

It really feels like the writers had so much more in store and got just 8 episodes to wrap it all up and kill the series.

Yeah, although I think it has been great so far, some really powerful scenes in season 5. Although only 8 episodes!?!?

Spoiler for spoilers:
Well the recurring theme of killing someone off when their storyarc reaches its conclusion has just taken its final victim. I guess nobody was walking away intact from this season anyway. Except for the historical figures I guess. Imo death shouldn't have been the way to end it for Nucky after he does a complete 180 back to the way he was in season 1/2.

But I guess they wanted to end it the only way they knew. By someone losing their brains. SPLAT.

Still mad about about Richard "No-scope" Harrow too.

EDIT: I guess I just really like the character Steve Buscemi "created". The sort of tragic, anti-hero person he sort of played in the Sopranos and in Resevoir dogs. He certainly isn't a one trick actor always playing the "Scummy" underdog guy people hate who gets killed in the end.

Well, I didn't see the end coming. Considering the story was going down the melancholic route, it was kind of fitting.
