There was always a lot – really too much – to get it sorted out in the finale to your honor, which not only includes completing the trial of Carlo Baxter, but Michael and Adam Desiato to meet and participate paid by Nancy Costello, Lee Delamere, Charlie and Kofi’s little brother Eugene, who is the only surviving member of his family, and it was hard to guess what form justice would take, what narrative punishment would be appropriate for the Desiatos, the much more Deaths have been on their conscience other than Rocco Baxter and could not be expected to get away with it

It is our request, as viewers, that screenwriters be the stewards of cosmic justice, which generally creates an order that almost never mimics real life, and in writer Peter Moffat’s defense, there is likely no end to the equation could make up for here: Kofi’s murder and the subsequent death of his mother and three of his siblings cannot be answered by any machinations of conspiracy, except perhaps for the deaths of both Desiatos, three-quarters of the Baxters and Big and Little Mo (And maybe a mutilation of Charlie or an end to his political ambitions) But Moffat essentially chooses the ending of The Godfather Part III, with the son catching a random bullet and the father cradling him in his arms after receiving the highest price for his It’s not a one-to-one comparison – Adam is guilty, after all, and Mary Corleone is innocent – but the parallels are unmistakable

Before we judge the ending, however, let’s make some judgments on other parts of this rocky finale. One advantage of Moffat, who pulls the strings as relentlessly as he is, is that many of the main characters share the same “What would you do.” do? ”Have to confront Question That Led to This Cascading Tragedy First and foremost, Nancy and Lee need to think at least a little bit before they can sincerely grill Michael for his lies Nancy discovers that the clever alibi is the Desiatos, a veteran who opened the cemetery gate near by Robin Desiato’s grave watched, closely reminding of her visit as it was the day his unit was massacred in Vietnam. Lee also discovers that the blue station wagon was “stolen” the day after Rocco’s death and can make up most of the rest from there

By far the strongest scene in the finale is Lee extracting the truth from Michael in chambers and hearing a full defense of his conduct. “Justice and principle do not take precedence over your child’s life,” he says And if the truth comes to the Baxters would come out, Jimmy Baxter would kill Kofi (“Would the death of another 17-year-old make everything better ?!”) Michael at least asks Lee to allow him to take the tumble for his son, but she didn’t manipulate her to represent Kofi, and now she’s dedicated to finding justice for her client and her client’s little brother who has a damn testimony he’s ready to deliver for the indictment, giving Michael a chance to give a fraction of his To purify soul – and when it is time for him to do so, he re-elects Adam over the Joneses

But let’s take it seriously here: there is no way this jury is not convicting Carlo Baxter of murder. Eugene need not tell you that Kofi stepped into Carlos’ cell to clarify his role in the whole matter. You already have a key piece from Carlo’s testimony collapses on cross-examination and Carlo responds by calling the prosecutor a “stupid cunt.” “Carlos’ lawyer didn’t want her to have a” Perry Mason “moment, and that’s exactly what happened – except here the jury did Perry Mason Doesn’t Bring Victory Though Michael puts his thumb on the scales of justice, the show isn’t enough to make a “not guilty” verdict plausible. Carlo cannot be trained on his hideous impulses

The show also botches the little intrigue surrounding Robin Desiato and her affair, a secret Michael had withheld from his son. Part of that subplot made it into the “Previous On” sequence without ever making it onto the show itself But it’s never clear why Robin’s affair is relevant to the bigger story anyway. There’s a thin thematic thread here about Michael’s other attempt to “protect” his son from the truth, but the whole thing should have been edited out of your honor without losing anything significant. We would have got less Margo Martindale, but Margo Martindale’s time should still have been better used

Now for the end Justice has to be delivered outside the courtroom, and Moffat tries to make it as poetic as possible by having Eugene buy a gun with the money from the signed Mariano Rivera baseball that Kofi got in Michael’s car If it wasn’t already obvious that Adam’s fate was related to Michael’s moral failings, then Michael indirectly pays for the gun that shoots his son and hammers it home.It’s a kind of justice when Adam is killed because Adam never is took responsibility for what he did, despite its repercussions on his subsequent behavior. And of course it is fair for Michael to lose a child, just like Jimmy Baxter – and just like another Michael, Corleone, in the underrated , but significantly reduced last chapter of Francis Ford Coppola’s gangster epic

But once again tragedy has piled on the shoulders of another member of the Jones family Eugene survived his brother’s death at the hands of Carlo Baxter and the remainder of his family’s death in an explosion ordered by Carlos’ father be some consolation to him that his stray ball caught the young man whose hits set all these events in motion, but he will leave provided he missed Carlo and shot an impeccable person and he may or may not become the Desire- Return the gang that prepared Kofi for the car theft job and caused him to suffer the fall for Rocco’s death

Perhaps this is the intended point for a show where most of the loss was piled on a black family not powerful enough to defend itself All Kofi Jones did was get paid for it driving a car that did not belong to him While Michael tried to give Kofi the best defense he could ultimately take no responsibility for an innocent man taking the fall for his son, and he refused to have Kofi’s only survivor Allowing Family Member to Testify on His Brother’s Name As a good liberal judge, Michael had intervened personally to block a false drug charge against Kofi’s mother, but the moment the stakes became personal, his dedication to racial justice left him with that is one solid thematic note for your honor, but it ends instead with another 17 year old taking his last breaths cht and Michael screams and cries It all feels like his tragedy and like his alone

• “I can smell a bluff like a bad whore’s mustard pot. An extremely colorful imagery from Big Mo, although she probably anchored Lee in this scene

Michael, who tells Adam the story of how he broke Robin’s rib for hugging her too tightly, later leads to a tidy payoff when Adam finally meets Jimmy Baxter face to face and gets the apparent Fredo hug

• The Vietnam veteran who spoils Michael’s made-up alibi makes his cover-up efforts a near-total failure Walter White got out of all kinds of jams in Breaking Bad, but even Michael’s smaller and more subtle fibs backfired at some point
