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.

Absolutely superb deviation from the Banshee norm
9 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

This episode is everything you wouldn't expect in an episode of Banshee

  • and yet it enhances and reinforces the show's premise and allows a

deeper look into the main characters' "what is, what was, and what may never be." Outstanding directing, camera work, color, music, writing (and knowing where verbal communication is to be purposely omitted), and acting. I am a huge fan of intelligent movies and films, and I am in constant search for stories and films that are brilliantly presented to exceed anything I have seen before. I did not see this episode coming, and I love every second of it. Back to Banshee basics next week, but thank you for this week's deviation into not only the characters of Hood and Carrie, but into the depth of their story.
