Denis Leary’s ‘Rescue Me’ Finale

Denis Leary's 'Rescue Me' FinaleDenis Leary’s ‘Rescue Me’ Finale, After eight years, loved Rescue Me FX is coming to an end. The series finale airs tonight at 10 pm, and many fans have one question in mind for the finale: Tommy Gavin is being killed?

That was a plot twist of the people had in mind even before Denis Leary was a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon yesterday, but after the appearance of Leary, everyone is wondering if he dropped the final spoiler about what will happen on the show tonight.

This is what he had to say (note: POTENTIAL spoiler below):

When asked mockingly Fallon Leary what happens in the final episode, Leary said the final scene involved a funeral, and seemed to suggest it could be yours:

In the last scene we shot … there is a funeral scene, and I was out of the chamber that day. Ooh, could be a clue.

The blogs have been lighting today with a breathless talk about whether or not Leary really gave the fate of his character. After all, the last episode, Ladder Company 62 was trapped in a building that had just been burned in hell for a giant explosion, so not much of a stretch to imagine that Tommy is the man in the coffin.

If you ask me, he’s just playing with the fans. I just I can not believe he had so casually refer a huge piece of history. I could be wrong, surely not the first time I trust issued a prediction that came to be so (I had Jesse Breaking Bad Pinkman die by a thousand deaths in seasons 2-3), but I’m guessing there is another reason Leary was out of the camera to the scene of the funeral. Maybe he’s hurt, maybe this funeral has nothing to do with his fellow firefighters, maybe the funeral is less about anyone in particular and more about the ultimate end of the series and out of Tommy in his head imagining their ghost for a final goodbye.

I used to watch religiously Rescue Me, but like I’ve lost over the past two seasons. Perhaps because there is nothing to match the emotional impact of season 2. (I will not spoil for those who have not seen, but for those who know what I’m talking about: gahhhhhhhhh pass the tissues). The camaraderie of the locker room was always fun, but I got tired of Tommy, Sheila, and Janet entanglements, and of course, those ever-present specters that haunt Tommy’s psyche.

However, there has been a good series, maybe even a great series, and I’ll be interested to see how to wrap things up tonight. Here is my message, although Leary is slip of the tongue: the life of Tommy. I’m thinking that maybe it’s that Lou does not.
