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.

Remain in awe of the production team
8 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

Since TV, the medium, arrived, there have been over 500,000 hours of airtime to fill. This challenge has been taken up by 10s of 1000s of broadcast stations all over the world, each picking and choosing among 100s of 1000s of hours of pre-packaged content, as the mood strikes them.

TV drama is only one segment of that mix but proportionately it is the largest. People like to be entertained. Who knew? If you are producing a TV drama there really is only one goal that supersedes all others, the holy grail of drama if you like.

Keep the viewer interested. Keep the viewer wondering what comes next. Let the viewer get so connected with the characters that the viewer jumps when the actors jump.

The irony -- and you can see this is the scatter-pattern of the other reviews for this episode -- is that Banshee prior to this had nothing to prove. It was already known to be one of the most engaging and satisfying dramas on the dial.

But the producers don't do "easy." This is a change of pace episode where the tension builds so well that by the 25:00 mark the viewer is starting to chew the furniture waiting for something to break.

And indeed it does.
