All talk and no action Thats usually not our buddy Vic Mackey But last week I clearly heard him say to Shane If I see you again I will kill you Vic saw him again and Shane is still walkin and talkin as far as I can see I mean I hoped it would happen I hoped Vic would pull up to Shane and pop him one but I also knew it couldnt happen that easily Shanes no dummy we all knew that I always considered Vic to be the more cunning of the two but Shane has really upped his game this time It was hard to tell up front what Shane was going to do with his documentation The episode started off with him writing all about Terry and we saw later its Tavon the money train and everything else they did I wondered if Shane thought the only way he wouldnt get killed by Vic is if he implemented Vic for everything so I figured Shane might take the offensive on this one But that doesnt do much for him since his name is all over those items as well Hes clearly smarter than
I wish I had the time to go back to the beginning of this series and watch the whole thing from the start again Id love to see the point where Shanes life started spiraling out of control Maybe it was the money train or hitting Tavon over the head or even all the way back to the first episode when the strike team killed a cop Theres got to be a dozen other moments as well but whatever moment it is one thing is for certain Shane has no control over what happens now This whole season has been a mess for him I guess its karma coming back to bite him the butt Nothing is going right for him and in reality he deserves it all But it was a shocker to see him get beat down If that was me I would have been crying like a 10-year-old girl No wait I would have been dead But for Shane eh no big deal And the real twists came when we learned that the beating was from Tillies stepdad and when Mara found out there were condoms in his personal items not to mention w
A big hearty handshake well not from Shane goes out to Alex OLoughlin aka Detective Kevin Hiatt as he begins his tour of duty in Farmington Boy he has no clue what hes being thrown into This was a nice semi-setup episode to get us ready for what we saw in the preview For the first time this season chasing Lems killer wasnt No 1 on the list We saw new drama unfold and even got back to the slaughterhouse briefly while the Lem situation still stewed in the background a bit Of course thats not to say that the strike team was thinking about Lem at all Corinne brings him up with this dream of hers more on that later and a box of books that Lem bought arrives at the barn Plus the new guy is a painful reminder that the team is one short Right away Hiatt learns how Vic operates when hes told to stay down as Vic storms a house This doesnt sit well with Hiatt but butting heads with Vic is certainly not the path to go down I love the fact that Claudette is still
He killed Lem Dont you remember his body his face You think you could just forget that huh Dont you think he deserves to die for what he didThose words screamed at Shane Vendrell by Vic Mackey helped mold a scene that had to be the most powerful one of the entire series Wow You knew Vic was going to do something harsh to Guardo if he found him but wow I mean wow I know Im saying that word a lot right now but that one word wow really sums up the boldness the intensity the determination the shock the brutality the hatred I could go on forever trying to describe the meeting of Guardo and Vic but nothing could do it justice so I choose wowThis whole season you could see the anger in Vics eyes and you could smell the revenge coming but despite everything thats happened over the previous five seasons even my eyes were wide open in shock this time around Guardo hung by a rope getting brutally beating by Vic with a monstrous metal ch
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.
