This episode blew me away.
Lem really stands out in this episode as the lead character. He fights to save his friends, and has to take them all on to do so.
Powerful performances from Kenny Johnson, Walton Goggins, and Michael Chiklis, but Kenny Johnson stands out so much. His role in the future of the Strike Team and as well as the show is defined here.
The fear of going to jail is only amplified when Dutch becomes suspecting of the Team. This is the moment everything begins to fall.
The Strike Team at odds, at the verge of prison...one of the best episodes not only of 'The Shield' but of any show I have ever seen.

This was a fantastic episode that really allowed Kenny Johnson to show
off his character and the role he plays within the Strike Team. It's
not often that it happens but when it does it's just brilliant.
It seems to becoming the tradition on The Shield to really amp things up towards the finale, and this season is no different. While this season hasn't been as exciting or groundbreaking as the second glorious season, it has had its moments, the strings of which are tied into this penultimate episode: Lem and Vic seeing Tavon about the fight, Acevada warning Claudette about her future captaincy, the Money Train investigation amping up.
The episode really kicks into gear in the second half and its great to see the effects of the Money Train investigation on the Strike Team, especially Vic and Lem. We see how far Vic is willing to go to get the information he needs. The rising body count, and the latest being an innocent girl, is what finally breaks Lem and pushes him to do the extreme.
The final scene is unforgettable and simply amazing - you think absolutely anything could happen. I even knew what was going to happen and STILL the scene floored me. Now, how will the season finale compare?
