So much for subtlety on this final installment of Writer Props for the "Entourage" series finale. We're throwing out that part of the rules just like Mrs. Ari threw away her cocktail dresses and other wardrobe choices in favor of that bikini.

Yes, it was wildly gratutious, massively unnecessary, and greatly appreciated.

On a show known for its eye candy and sex appeal, Mrs. Ari's appeal was almost always understated. So we appreciate the last-chance statement . . . with an exclamation point.
