The man who hid behind the law
22 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode brought out the dark side in Vick and proved to many that the show. As of recent the seasons have had more of Vick character with more tolerance for the humanity in others. The violent streak is still there. Way before Anthone Mitchell hit the scene armadillo was Vick real enemy. One who didn't let the anyone but himself pull the strings. He became the one of the strike team worst enemy. Actually showing the ripple effect of what happens when you get to close to the criminal mind. This episode contains some of the most extreme graphic torture scene of the series is one of the most phenomenal episode. That will actually allow you for once not to question what Vick Mackey does but instead watch. This is one of the best storyline from the Shield.
