In Season 01 Episode 05 "Blowback", writer Kurt Sutter also plays the enigmatic (and psychotic) blond Armenian drug dealer. See more »


When detective Mackey is placing the two bricks of cocaine into his bag after the Armenian drug dealer raid, he says "I don't want my kids going through that UC Northridge hell." The college in Northridge is part of the California State University system, not the University of California system. So it is "Cal State Northridge", not "UC Northridge." A streetwise experienced detective in Los Angeles like Mackey would certainly not make that mistake. See more »

Blowback (#1.5)
12 August 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a pretty great episode. A lot of action and story developments which make one wonder what is next. The whole looking for the truck and who will find it first was pretty well done.

Julien now witnessed Vic and his guys taking drugs from the crime scene I am actually surprised he told it to David Claudette said he should ask himself if the crime committed was worth it. I thought he would just let it go as it was just drugs. Wonder if this means that Julien will be out soon as well.

I like the idea that he is gay and that religious. If the character stays longer hope they can develop it better.

And Vic and Danni making out in the end! That was also cool
