Anastasia breaks into her father's extremely secure home to make a deal for her safety. She gives him the diamonds that she originally stole. He tells her that she would me set free if she turned over her partner. Proctor and Chief Longshadow make a deal to build a hotel on the reservation. However, the chief's son is not happy with the decision. He does not trust nor like Proctor. Despite the misgivings, Proctor and Lonshadow decide to host a fight of mixed martial artist. The DA invites Lucas to his home for his a cook-out. His conversations with Anastasia do not go very well. He ends up leaving and going to back to the bar where he runs into Rebecca, an Amish girl. Sanchez, the fighting champion, ends up beating and raping a waitress. Though Proctor and Longshadow wants the fight to continue for business purposes, Lucas arrests him anyway. The arrest was a knockdown drag-out fight between Sanchez and Lucas. This was the type of beat down that you would only see in Banshee. Written by Axe Pagode

Baskin Robins newest TV flavor: CRAZY
8 August 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Gotta love Cinemax. On the heels of their success with Strike Back (a remarkably elegant little series, with a cinema-quality feel, hindered only by the fact that the strongest character was gratuitously killed in the first season, and the predictable weekly plot device is that NO MISSON EVER WORKS PROPERLY) they dug deep in into the talent drawer (Alan Ball for one) and produced this "dirty dancing" version of Justified.

With no apologies.

As professional critics have noted, where the series lacks a mushy marshmallow core, it substitutes a generous dollop of pure and simple "crazy." Works for me.

This, only the third episode, telegraphs to the viewer that, if the series is allowed to continue (and it was, 3rd season now in production) you're not in Kansas anymore.

The newbie viewer would be forgiven for being duped by a premature emotional high early on, when Anna drops her gentle housewife act and takes out a bunch of big city pros in order to deliver an ultimatum to the "real" series protagonist, played brilliantly by Ben Cross.

That's just the teaser. The climax of the episode, with Sheriff Hood, overage and underweight, delivering a can of whoop-ass to a professional UFC fighter, meets or exceeds the kick from the very first episode of Person of Interest, the latter generally acknowledged as setting the bar for getting the attention of the otherwise jaded viewer.

Good stuff.
