The ending was so satisfying, that it could work as the conclusion not just of this upcoming season, but the entire series. But I hope that's not the case.
Along the way, we have real surprises and turns in the plot, and some of the best writing in the series, coming not only from Hank's mouth but the Runkles. As I said in my preview review yesterday, this season has a kinship with Entourage, and Curb Your Enthusiasm as well. Although Hank was always a writer and Runkle his agent, the business part of that relationship is well presented in Season 4. There are also some superb courtroom scenes - funny and serious - like a Law and Order on crack.
I know - you'd like to know if Hank and Karen stay together. All that I'll tell you is that the ending seemed right, deeply so. Hank, despite his self-admitted flaw, always had a good heart.
You're in for a treat starting January 9.
