Before we get into this, take one of those deep, cleansing breaths they talk about in yoga class so you can calm down. You may in fact still be reeling from the last episode of Shades of Blue, in which Sap (Santino Fontana) proved just how far he'll go to protect himself now that Woz (Ray Liotta) suspects that he's the rat on the team. As the episode ended, Sap's life hung perilously in limbo — and things get even more intense this week.
First, Woz pays a visit to the hospital and continues to be frighteningly creepy as he looms over Sap's literal deathbed, admonishing Sap - yes, while he's in a coma - for not being honest about his true motives. Harlee (Jennifer Lopez), meanwhile, comes out and admits that she's not a good person - and provides proof. And Loman (Dayo Okeniyi), our lovably (if slightly annoyingly) naive rookie, now finds himself caught deeper in the web than he might've initially thought.
As for that deep breathing you did earlier, take another one. The next episode ends with a literal bang, in the form of explosives planted by someone on the team who's going way too far to hide a secret. And it results in the death of a major character.
Terrified of Woz? You're not alone. Check out this video featuring Shades of Blue cast members, including Hampton Fluker, talk about how much they're legit-scared of Woz - and Ray Liotta too.
Shades of Blue airs Thursdays at 10/9c on NBC.
