Man what a season Cant the final season just start next week Or cant we just fast-forward to March 2008 right now Leave Christmas in just for the heck of itAgain The Shield threw me for a loop I was expecting either Shane or a member of the Mackey family to bite the big one and none of them did I was expecting Vic to get his job back but not by exposing the Mexican mob and I certainly didnt expect him to walk out of his hearing As Ive said before the twists and turns are what make this show so great We start off with a bang right where last week left off with Vic and Aceveda doing a dance I loved what happened between the two of them in this episode Vic tries to blackmail Aceveda by showing him the picture Then David turns around and sends a lawyer to tell Vic hes being sued and will lose everything Then Vic goes back to Pazuela and gets the memory card which forces Acevedas hand But instead of just trying to get his job back Vic teams up with Aceveda t
I know its probably bad to start off a blog about this weeks episode by saying I cant wait for next weeks But its true The last time I remember anticipating a finale as much as this one it was the final episode of Cheers And this is just a season finale I mean jeez my heart My poor tired heart I know my heart cant wait until 1105 pmET next week for it to be over It gets a workout each week and Im sure the ticker is a little exhausted at this point Then again we get to wait nine months for more so its bittersweet Anyway where were we Right we had another heck of an episode leading up to the finale Everything looked kind of calm at the beginning but in true Shield fashion it all hit the fan by the end of the hour Lets talk San Marcos first We finally have some closure on the whole situation Vics goal was to solve the murder case before he got pushed out so he had five days to figure it out which of course he did in one That contractor guy gave
I thought of many ways to begin my first blog for The Shield and I think the best way is for you all to join me in saying two words hell yeah Honestly Ive never been this excited for a new season of a show I certainly havent watched every show in existence but of the ones I have this might be the only one without a misstep somewhere along the way So youll have to pardon me if my emotions get the best of me at points What can I say Im excited But first before we chat a moment of silence for Lem Whew It felt like an eternity between the time we saw Lem take a grenade and the start of this season didnt it Its all worth it though to see the absolute gore the unmatched anger on Vics face and to feel your eyes swelling as the show opens and closes with Johnny Cashs stark cover of Stings I Hung My Head I certainly ran the gamut of emotions with this episode I mean first how can you not feel for Lem He was extremely loyal to his crew and wasnt about t
Question: Any scoop on The Shield? Will Julien ever come to terms with his sexuality? Do the writers even remember he's gay, since it hasn't been addressed since Season 3!?
Answer: That's a good question. I'll look into that. In the meantime, one of these actors will not be returning for the second half of Season 5.
Walton Goggins (Shane)
Michael Jace (Julien)
Kenny Johnson (Lem)
Jay Karnes (Dutch)
Benito Martinez (Aceveda)
CCH Pounder (Claudette)
Question: I need some Shield poop! Do you know who the new captain will be?
Answer: Shawn Ryan was incredibly vague about that topic, saying, "It's somebody new to that role.… I didn't think we could equal what we had, with three years of Benito Martinez and then a year of Glenn Close, so we're taking a very different tone with this year's captain. It's more about absentee leadership than any kind of new leadership." And here's some other breaking Shield poop: Catherine Dent's real-life pregnancy will be written into the show, setting up a "Who's your daddy?" mystery within Farmington; Guiding Light alum Paula Garces joins the force as Julien's new partner; and Ryan says there's a "decent-to-good chance" that Anthony Anderson will be back. Sadly, the same can't be s
