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.

Caution...spoilers ahead. I'm assuming many of the people reading this either saw the episodes on TV, watched the DVDs or both. If you're not one of those people, you may want to read this at some other time.

One thing about the bonus materials on The Shield DVDs...it's always interesting and provides excellent "peeks behind the curtain" for the series' fans. It's made clear that the show would end with "closure" on Vic Mackey...perhaps to avoid the kind of backlash that came with Tony Soprano's onion ring-munching "non-ending" at the final moments of The Sopranos, or perhaps the complexity of the Mackey character demanded closure.

In reality, series creator Sean Ryan is a genius, because whether it's immediately clear or not, Season 7 of The Shield ended with Vic Mackey munching onion rings. Please allow me to elaborate.

The set-up is that Vic is being exiled to a cubicle for the next three years, where he'll crank out a ten-page report every day, five days a week, 52 weeks a year. We see Vic look pensively out the upper-story window as squad cars, lights and sirens in full blaze, head toward some unknown crime scene. And when he stuffs his gun in his belt and walks out of the office...the last shot of the series...we see that VIC MACKEY LOOK. The only thing that has changed is his surroundings. He's still the same coiled snake that's depicted on the Strike Team calling card used throughout the series.

Three years in Vic Mackey time is nothing, and he would game the system every inch of the way. He'd hired private detectives in the past to find his wife and kids...what possible reason do we have for believing he wouldn't do it again? Vic was simply transplanted to a new playing field.

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.
