As the lights go out on this miracle of a series, it’s time to continue our fond farewell and salute the residents of Dillon with the final part of our run-down. Surprisingly, Lyla, Jason, Smash and Luke have all had to settle for a place on the side-lines, as ten other worthy souls have pushed and shoved their way to the top of the list. Life may never be the same again for the Taylors, the Lions, or any of Dillon’s finest – not forgetting mine – but for that we’re all eternally grateful.

Goodbye y’all, thanks for having us.
