FX Emmy darling Louie will again come to a close tonight with Season 5 finale “The Road Part 2,” a notably shorter eight-episode run than some of its predecessors. Many assumed the truncated order owed to comedian Louis C.K.’s grueling schedule and past hiatus requirements, but nope! He was just high. Allow us to explain.

The big question everyone has been focusing on following last night’s episode of Louie is this: did Pamela sexually assault Louie? The answer is, obviously, yes. He said no, she aggressively persisted while gently shushing him, an act that felt so intimately real. Louie has treaded similar territory before, in last season’s “Pamela Part 1,” in which the roles were reversed as Louie aggressively forced Pamela to kiss him — it was both emotional and physical assault for Pamela, who resents anything resembling feelings. But in “Bobby’s House,” the tables are turned, as Pamela not only assaults Louie, but thoroughly emasculates him, as well.

Louis C.K. years earlier broke our hearts with the news that FX’s ‘Louie’ season 4 would be pushed to 2014, and while season 5 will have its own caveat of reduced episodes, we’ll have the Emmy-winning dramedy back even sooner than we hoped. ‘Louie’ season 5 has set its official April premiere, while FX has also plotted the debuts of Billy Crystal’s ‘The Comedians’ and 2014 breakout ‘You’re the Worst.’

Ecstatic though we were to have FX Emmy darling 'Louie' back for a fourth season, the controversy quotient seemed higher than usual when a recent episode highlighted comedian Pamela Adlon's character in an uncomfortable struggle with rape-like overtones. Louis C.K. himself has kept mostly mum on the matter, but what does Adlon have to say about the difficult scenes?

Last night's dual 'Louie' installments "Elevator Part 6" and "Pamela Part 1" took the stories to some pretty extreme highs and lows for Louis C.K.'s sadsack comedian character, but regardless of your take on the latter's difficult content, the resolution with Louie's Hungarian-speaking lady-friend Amia (Eszter Balint) proved admirably sweet. Now, after 6 episodes, we can finally find out what the character has been saying!
