Seriously, one of the best series finales that I have ever seen. See reviews below for info on the plot and details. I don't have to repeat them
The whole shows works brilliantly as a tragedy, with the Strike team on the road to disaster. Every story is wrapped up in a satisfying way.
As many times as I rolled my eyes at the plots, which were telegraphed clumsily through the conversations, and many times I felt like the writers were clumsy and pulling constantly on coincidences, this final season ended without regrets, disappointments or sadness for this viewer.
Vic Mackey will see his way out of his predicament, I am sure.
After so many horrible series finales (Dexter, anyone) what a relief to have a good one.

Just watched this and it was awesome. The best series finale I have ever seen!! I have swapped all the rest of this series, but may keep this last season, its so good. The actors have given solid performances throughout the whole series, but these last ones were superb. It is definately not a feel good series, but OMG! If you haven't watched from the beging you are missing out. It does have alot of violence, profantiy and nudity, but all within the story line. Very gritty and believable. Get this one!!

The end

"Warning, spoilers ahead:

In the seventh, and final, season of FX's The Shield, everyone gets just about what they deserve to one degree or another. Whether it be crooked cop Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis), who is working overtime to save himself along with working every angle and playing every side he can in the process, or his ex-partner Shane (Walton Goggins), whose plan to take out Vic and Ronnie (David Rees Snell) goes awry, and when he is discovered, amounts to one of the absolute best scenes and moments in the show's entire history as he goes on the run with his pregnant wife Mara (Michele Hicks). In between all that, Vic's shaky alliance with Aceveda (Benito Martinez) hits a bump as he plays the Armenians, Mexicans, Salvadorans, and the Feds all against each other, as well as seeking immunity with the help of a shady agent (Laurie Holden), which leads to a powerful moment of Vic's admition of all the things he's done over the years in the season's penultimate episode. Everything truly does come together as the episodes wind down to the end, and everyone gets what they deserve in the process. There's some sub-plots abound that include Claudette's (CCH Pounder) failing health rearing its ugly head again, Dutch's (Jay Karnes) investigation of a possible up and coming serial killer, Dani's (Catherine Dent) attempting to keep her son out of Vic's reach, and Corrine's (Cathy Cahlin Ryan) betrayal of Vic. Throughout the season, Chiklis is at his top form, and is more magnetic to watch here than ever before. That being said, The Shield as a whole has earned its spot as being a groundbreaking crime drama, and in retrospect, the show comes to a more than fitting end as well."
A Terrific Ending to one of the best TV Shows of all Time

"One thing about "The Shield" is how well the show holds up on multiple viewings. It's probably because of the attention to detail and the numerous story arcs going on in any single episode. This continues to be the case in the 7th and final season of the show.

Season 7 finds Det. Vic Mackey, at the end of the line. Season 6 finished with Vic walking out on his last chance to keep his job with the LAPD and making a deal with former police Captain, now wannabe-Mayor Aciveda to take down the crooked developer who has been bankrolling Aciveda's political career. Meanwhile, Vic's strike team is beginning to come apart at the seams, all of their former bad deeds are bubbling to the surface, and on top of that Vic's ex-wife and daughter are terrified of him. Vic's a dirty cop with a perverted sense of justice. He thinks that if he can nail this crooked developer AND take down the Armenian mob, it will make up for all the horrible things he has done.

The season plays out almost as a tragedy, and is the strongest season of the Shield since the powerful season 3. Watching these episodes again, I'm most struck by the relationship between Dutch and Capt. Wymms. Both actors do terrific work as seemingly the only people in the precinct who seem to care about Mackey's abuses, and the quest to bring him down strains them to the breaking point.

The rest of the cast is solid as always. David Rees Snell, who plays Ronnie Gardocki on the strike team, shows a whole lot more here than he has in the past. But the real standouts are Michael Chiklis as Mackey, and Walt Goggins as his longtime best friend/failed protege Shane Vendrell. Goggins is outstanding in the final episodes. He's done horrible things and he can barely live with himself, yet he continues on to try and help his wife and children.

The show ends in about the only logical place it could end. The last three episodes in particular are shattering. The writing, acting, and direction are all fantastic, and "The Shield" goes out on a highly satisfying and emotional peak. A must own."
A fitting end, full of suprises,complications and just desse

"The Shield's final season is uncompromising as old ghosts continue to complicate lives in farmington. Every moment of this season remains focused on the impending end, and long time viewers are rewarded as the major plot points come to a head and pay off. This was not a quickie rush job to end the story, every member of the cast moves with deliberate and in some cases desperate urgency.
The season is topped off by one of the most satsifying endings I have seen in a television show. It's a credit to the writers and actors involved that I can pity a character I despised an episode earlier, or that a complex character like Vic Mackey can charm his way through a horrific dialogue.
If you've been watching the Shield, don't miss the final season."
