TV show description:
Newly-risen star Vincent “Vince” Chase (Adrian Grenier) depends on his close circle of friends from Queens, New York, to help him navigate the shark-infested waters of Hollywood.
Eric “E” Murphy (Kevin Connolly) is his level-headed best friend and manager. Has-been actor Johnny “Drama” Chase (Kevin Dillon) is Vince’s older brother and personal chef. Childhood friend “Turtle” (Jerry Ferrara) is Vince’s driver and mostly ineffective assistant.
Vince’s high-strung and abrasive agent is Ari Gold (Jeremy Piven) who would prefer that Vince dump his hometown pals. Other characters include Ari’s wife (Perrey Reeves), Ari’s often mistreated and openly gay assistant Lloyd (Rex Lee), and Vince’s hot tempered publicist, Shauna Roberts (Debi Mazar).
Episode 96 — The End
Vince delivers big news after spending a night with Sophia. Ari makes one final attempt to save his marriage, and when it dawns on him what his mistakes were, he quits the agency.
Drama and Turtle do their best to get Sloan to reconcile with Eric, as Vince makes an effort of his own with Terrance. In the end, Vince, Sophia, Turtle, Drama, Ari, and Melissa fly off to Paris for Vince’s wedding while E and Sloan fly off together.
In a final post-credits scene, Ari is in Italy with his wife when he receives a call from John Ellis (Alan Dale), the CEO of Time Warner. He tells Ari he’s retiring and that he wants him as his successor. The episode ends with Ari pondering the offer.
First aired: September 11, 2011.
