The411:  Welcome to this week's the 411.  This week kicked off the last season of Oprah and she landed in Kentucky.  This photo was taken by local photographer Rob Gunter.  It shows Oprah getting off her private jet in Pikeville, Kentucky.  She was headed to West Virginia to do a show.  Sources tell The411 that this photo was taken about two weeks ago.  The show was about a small town in West Virginia and their views about a man who was HIV positive.  Mike Sisco jumped into a community pool and created outage within the town.  Some 23 years later, Oprah returned to the town to see if their views were the same or if they were remorseful for what they did.  If you look at both the video and the photo Lady O she's wearing the same outfit. 

There's also another connection to the Bluegrass State when it comes to this particular episode.  Sisco's sister Anna now lives in Louisville.  She says she has been in Louisville for almost 20 years.
