Carrie is let free out of prison. Lucas is waiting on her. As they pull away, a blue Dodge Charger is following them. Presumably it is her husband. But, it could be one of a myriad of people who have grudge including Rabbit, Gordon, Chayton, or someone from the FBI. Lucas notices the car, but he does not let on. Lucas and Carrie spend time together. They talk, have a meal, go to a flea market, and they case a jewelry store. Carrie finds a stuffed toy unicorn. It reminds her of a story that she used to tell Deva when she was little. Carrie buys the unicorn as a present for Deva. Lucas spots the Blue Charger several more times, but it turns out to be a false alarm upon investigation. It is just a young homemaker buying groceries. On the way back, they take a little detour. He takes her to the house that they talked about so many years ago. It is a nice little place where they could hide from the world.

Different directorial feel...
15 March 2014 | by (Kentucky, USA) – See all my reviews

It felt like someone was trying to give it an emotional impact through slow motion, stop motion, lots of music with nobody doing anything. Miami Vice pulled it off in the '80s, but not much else has done it successfully since then. This episode failed miserably. It was very slow. However, if you liked the movie Drive (I hated it), then this may be the episode for you, as they have directorial similarities. This episode felt very different than most of the other Banshee episodes, especially the early ones, although some of the more recent episodes are introducing the stop motion editing (I also hate this). Moving car... music... long stares at nothing or each other... this episodes got it all. Perfect for the insomniac.
