HOLLYWOOD—Sunday night’s season finale of “Entourage” left me in a puddle of tears. I cried because it’ll be next summer before we see what happens to Vince and Ari and because it was painful to watch Vince crash and burn in true Hollywood-fashion.
With Mrs. Ari (Perrey Reeves) fuming over Ari’s (Jeremy Piven) angry meltdown the night before, Ari tried desperately to keep a surprise party for her on track. He didn’t count on his bitter sister-in-law to show up and convince her sister to leave the super talent agent. Ari’s a man who is used to getting everything he wants, so this time around, it was devastating to lose the one person he loves.
The guys attempted to stage an intervention for Vince (Adrian Grenier), who has gone off the deep end. Not only did the intervention fail, but Vince ended up getting beaten to a bloody pulp during a party at a famed L.A. hotel. The final scene when the cop at the hospital told him that he was going nowhere until he explained who the cocaine belongs to that they found in his clothing, was one of those “gotcha” moments for sure.
Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) scrambled to find investors to save the tequila business. Begging everyone he knows around town only made him more of a pariah in Hollywood. Eric (Kevin Connolly) received an unexpected request from Sloan’s (Emmanuelle Chriqui) father, Terrance (Malcolm McDowell), which led him to consider Scott’s (Scott Caan) business proposal. It was an offer, he could not refuse.
“Entourage” ended in a bang. It was a fun-filled night of excitement as only Hollywood insiders know about, but all the viewers love to see. The episode was written by Doug Ellin, and directed by David Nutter.
“Entourage” was created by Doug Ellin; executive producers, Mark Wahlberg, Doug Ellin, Stephen Levinson, Rob Weiss, Denis Biggs and Ally Musika; producers, Wayne Carmona and Lori Jo Nemhauser.
