Season 11 of Curb Your Enthusiasm Originally Ended with Larrys Death: Scene Shot as If Series Lasts ...

Curb Your Enthusiasm's most recent season centered on Larry David trying to avoid putting a fence around his pool and being blackmailed when a burglar who had robbed his house fell into the pool and drowned. The last moments of the season finale ended with Larry David following the burglars footsteps and tripping and falling into the pool of a town councilman, as originally shot and completed as if it were the series' last one.

When David was asked whether or not he always knows where a given season will take him, it was revealed that events throughout the preceding episodes are almost always bringing the whole thing together at an unexpected point. (The Season 3 chef with Tourettes, anyone?)

It's sometimes obvious. With the season before, we knew that spite store would die in some way. But this one, I just felt right. I know I say this all the time, but every season is the last one. We actually have a shot after he's fallen into the still pool with just the envelope floating in the middle, and maybe adding one bubble, David said.

We shot as if it would be the finest lastone ever. I had to at least prepare for it, he said.

This season, David admitted, lent itself too well to his possibility of dying. Last season could have also posed an out with the conflagration of Davids spite store.

David said of the Season 11 conclusion: We just got high and wide on the pool, with one light shining on it and the envelope floating in the middle. And we said, OK, if this is how we go, this is how we go!'

Schaffer stated that he was not ready to die for the last-minute decision not to murder Larry after all.

David says he's particularly proud of this Season 11, from incredible arguments between Vince Vaughn and Larry, to Larry taking shoes from the Holocaust Museum, which is one of the top five funny things that were ever recorded there, to Woody Harrelson and Larry making a fantastic call.
