Ashes to Ashes
27 May 2016 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Not nearly as much intensity, but still a great concluding episode. After killing Babe (so to speak), Frankie and Grace have her ashes in an urn they found at a garage sale. As they return to the house, they find two presents awaiting them. Frankie's is a prepaid studio showing of her art work. Grace gets a vibrator that she injures her wrist using. Frankie made a painting called Hitler's Circumcision, a tasteless mess, which she thought had been purchased and collected by Kenny Loggins. It turns out that Sol made the whole thing up to cheer her up. The story, however, has become legion, and now she feels betrayed (Sol has done more betraying than Judas himself). The byplay among the family members, as Grace finds prepackaged gifts that Robert had accumulated for her (so he would have something for every occasion) so he wouldn't need to bother at any time, is quite priceless. This all leads to a wonderful conclusion, setting up the next season. This one was power packed. What a group of amazing people.
