Question: You saw the season premiere of The Shield? You lucky man! In fact, I think I hate you. Give up some more goods, or I will sic my Maltese on you.

Answer: Well, in addition to the memorable Mackey-Kavanaugh run-in that I told you about last week, Corrine and new mama Danny also get into a little verbal tussle that turns real ugly real fast. And the haunting Johnny Cash track "Hurt" that FX featured in its Shield promos last year gets used to perfection in a montage that caps the episode.
