Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Mayor Dan Kendall (credit only)


Lucas rushes Carrie to the hospital after that mega-battle she had with Olek. She survives her injuries, but she wakes up disorganized and disheveled. She knows that Rabbit has figured it out and is on his way. She checks herself out of the hospital and rushes to find her children. She is too late. Rabbit kidnaps her son Max. Rabbit shows up at the Hopewell house. He fills in Gordon and Deva about many of the lies that Carrie has been telling. Deva learns that Gordon is not her father. He gets Max's medicine and leaves. Lucas goes to Proctor for help after Rabbit shows up. After asking Lucas if he ever slept with Rebecca, Proctor begins a banshee style beat down, but Lucas holds his own. They end up making an agreement that Proctor will watch Lucas' back and Lucas will never see Rebecca again. Written by Axe Pagode

Used to think JUSTIFIED was as good as it gets..
29 September 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

... and then I found Banshee.

My bad.

In this, the second to last episode of the first season, we have another episode so tight, so suspenseful, that even while you are watching it, a part of your brain goes, gee, this is better than most of the movies coming from Hollywood lately.

And you reply to that small part of your brain, yes brain, you are correct. The craft and precision built into this series -- everything from casting to writing to direction -- is nothing short of astonishing.

I like that the writing team went to all the trouble of creating a local villain (who in this wonderful episode gets to show that his boast of being a "dangerous man" in an earlier episode was not an idle one) just to distract the viewer so that, when the real baddie finally arrives, the viewer would be caught off guard.

I like that the character of Anna is written so powerfully that she not only leaves her own hospital bed to rescue her son (very macho), but when her husband demands one-on-one time to discuss some inconsistencies in her backstory, she simply tells him "later." And most of all I love that, just as you get drawn into one story arc, they jump to another arc that is just as engaging, if not moreso.

The mainstream reviewers had one word for this show.


That one they got right.
