It can be games, shows, books, movies, plays, anything, but what is (are) your favorite climaxes and why?
This is inspired because I just finished watching Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood, whose finale is fantastic. It has several well-laid plans from both the good guys and the bad guys come to fruition over the course of thirteen episodes (50-63, from the time the coup in Central starts until Father's demise) and then one epilogue episode that, while not really wrapping up truly necessary plot points, still serves as a great way to wind the plot down. I can't just watch this ending act one or two episodes at a time, it's something that I want to sit down and watch all at once, which I did this morning It just starts out so strong and then keeps building and building and building upon itself in epic happenings, and even carries a lot of character development with it. Perhaps I enjoy this show a little too much but it's so damn amazing and gives me so much joy at the end of it all.
So there's mine; what's yours?
Also, on a completely unrelated note, what is the plural of dénouement? I put an S up there but I'm not sure if that's right or not...
