Capone’s Seen Tonight’s
Game-Changing SHIELD!!

I am – Hercules!!
Tonight’s episode of “The Shield” is the best and most gripping installment of this series I’ve yet seen. Let’s see what Capone makes of it …

Hello again everyone. Capone in Chicago here in Coaxial. After this episode, there are five episodes and counting in "The Shield's" Final Act. And as of this writing, I've now watched all but the final two episodes of this freakishly great show (these two will not be sent in advance to critics). This is actually going to be one of the most difficult episodes of the season to preview since so much happens that is critical to the final five episodes. This is the staging area, the launch pad, the place where we wait to hear the starting pistol...literally. Title? PARRICIDE [Here's the definition I found: "The act of murdering a person who stands in a relationship resembling that of a father." Considering where Shane's head was at the end of the last episode, this definition shouldn't come as any surprise.] Writers? Kurt Sutter and Gary Lennon, who wrote the first and second episodes of the current season, respectively. Sutter had written something like 17 episodes of the show prior to this one; Lennon was the writer/director of the 2006 crime drama .45, starring Milla Jovovich; this is his second time writing for "The Shield." Director? Guy Ferland, director of 10 episodes (including the premiere episode of this season), as well as episodes of "The Riches," "Sleeper Cell," and "Prison Break." Where did we leave off? Shane recruiting the pimp whose jaw was broken by Ronnie in the last episode for an unknown task that isn't so unknown. Where to we pick up? Shane is prepping for something big at home, wearing a baseball cap and gloves while stuffing guns into a small duffle bag. His anxiety level is clearly elevated. He goes over his alibi (which involves a food delivery man) with his wife. Since it's already evening, it's clear that whatever is going to happen in this episode, it's going to happen early and not at the end of the hour. Where is Vic right now? Vic is meeting with Pezuela, who wants to get a little use out of his new employee by getting him to eliminate a drug dealer in the community, a white priest named Father Morton (played by Silas Weir Mitchell), who Pezuela says is letting drug dealer operate out of his church. Vic figures out quick that the church also happens to stand in the way of a major Pezuela real estate deal. Vic does confront the priest and asks him to shut down, which he refuses to do. So Vic turns his attention to more familiar territory: the drug dealers who operate out of the church, who reveal to Vic that the priest has a secret that they know that makes it impossible for him to say no to them. How is Aceveda's campaign financing going? He meets with Pezuela, who tell him he'd like him to be mayor with his help and influence. He also tells him this is a one-time offer. How and what is my favorite hot FBI agent doing? Vic works with Agent Olivia Murray on using the priest to secure racketeering charges against Pezuela. Vic also takes the opportunity to lobby for a job as an inside man the feds can use in the future. Later in the episode Vic is back at the FBI office when Aceveda arrives to tell them of Pezuela's offer, which the feds tell him to accept. Vic also figures out that someone higher up than Pezuela in the Mexican cartel is in the city watching Pezeula's movements. Where is Ronnie right now? Ronnie is returning home from a hard day with a little honey on his arm. Just as he puts the keys in the door, shots ring out. Where is Shane right now? Not at Ronnie's place. He's hiding in the dark at Vic's place, waiting for Vic to come home. Does Vic make it home? Yes. Does Vic find out about what happened to Ronnie? Just as he gets home, seemingly to meet a similar fate, Vic gets a call. What happens when the bullets stop flying and the dust settles? The shooter is quickly ID'd thanks to partial plates, and Shane appears to be in the clear for Ronnie since Ronnie and the shooter had a previous beef. In a fantastic turn of events, Shane and Julien area assigned to find the shooter. At first, Shane uses this assignment to his advantage, but uniformed officers pick up the shooter first, throwing off Shane's game plan. Dutch and Billings go at the shooter first. That must be one hell of an interrogation. You bet it is. Shane does manage to get a few seconds of alone time with the shooter to find out where his gun is and retrieve it. Does the shooter give the cops Shane's name as the guy who hired him to shoot Ronnie? Yes. Is Shane in The Barn when this happens? If the front door hitting him in the ass on the way out counts as "in The Barn," then yes. Where is Shane's wife, Mara, when this is going down? At Corrine's house delivering a message that involves the murder of Terry Crowley and the money train robbery, as well as detailed instructions on how Corrine will keep the cops far away from her and Shane. What I liked. I like that I haven't told you half of the cool shit that goes down in this episode, but what I've given you is so fucking cool. This is that episode of the show where everything changes and nothing can go back to the way it was. The Strike Team is done. You will not believe the tension during the interrogation scene with Ronnie's shooter, especially when Shane sees where things are headed. Once again, the editing team cut that sequence together so beautifully, you can't help but be impressed. What I didn't like. I may never have anything to put in this slot again. How does it end? And truly do not read this if you don't want to know what happens to certain major characters. Corrine makes a deal with Vic--she'll help him if he stays away from their kids forever. Claudette tells Mackey that she wants him chained to his desk until his time on the force is done. She doesn't know where his loyalties lie with Shane, but she suspects he'll try to find him and kill him. Vic laughs in her face and says, "If this is all that's left of the job, I don't want it." His gun and badge land on her desk, giving him full permission to rogue out. -- Capone capone@aintitcoolmail.com

    by dancinggopher01

    I really hope Mackey doesn't go out like that. Though it would be a pretty powerful way for Vic to die, I think it would be sort of a cop out. He should go down guns blazing if he goes down.

    "Shane is going to get it in the end" Shield Slash fiction?

    Slash fiction - for people not talented enough to write porn or imaginative enough to write their own characters. Hate to be that way but i gotta be that way.

    Street Kings reminded me how good The Shield is

    by JackRabbitSlim

    I'm a huge fan of the devil-dog James Ellroy but ... The Shield has taken Ellroy's redefining of the corrupt cop archetype and amplified it through anguish and greed and goddamn good writing to heights and depths even the maestro never envisaged. Watching Street Kings mangle it just makes me appreciate the grime-ridden genius of The Shield all the more.

    this ep blows forest whitaker's whole season out of the water

    by belledame

    I can't believe that was just one hour. It was the mother of all "Shield" nailbiters. Like they only allowed the writers of the ten best episodes into the room on this. The ending was perfect, the perfect "just when you thought it couldn't get any wilder." Were she a real person, I would insist Claire Bennet take notes on this as vital primer on how to hunt prey and recruit all allies to your quest for vengeance/justice. This finale is one for the ages!

    Since EP 1

    by PoorOLtinTin

    I've seen every episode of this show from the pilot at air... I always said the only 2 shows that could make me scream out loud at the TV were The Shield and The Wire. With the loss of the Wire, I haven't had a chance to raise my voice to the living room walls in over a year. This episode of The Sheild finally made me scream in shock and pure excitment. I too am glad I didn't swipe that final spoiler, even though my kid is awake and I'm cleaning piss out of my couch.

  • Oct. 21, 2008, 11:25 p.m. CST

    That was fucking amazing

    by TheLastCleric

    This show owns me in a way few things ever have and ever will. Each episode is usually better than the vast majority of films and that particular episode was quite simply superb. Shane's exit from the Barn, coupled with that look on his face when he realized the house of cards had finally fallen, was about as genuine as it gets. Vic's confession to his Ex was pretty emotional as well. I've also got to say that Vic is easily one of the most complex and layered characters I've ever come across in fiction; he's done some very bad shit yet there is a decent person struggling against the darkness, though it may be too late to save much of anything. I am a little shocked that Danny's move wasn't even mentioned, though I'm sure they'll get to it. Regardless, five episodes left and as so many of you have said, I have no idea how this is going to end. Great episode.

  • Oct. 22, 2008, 1:28 a.m. CST

    So much fantastic stuff in the episode...

    by Pops Freshemeyer

    Billings stepping his game up. Ronnie watching Shane watching Dutchboy and Vic. Vic's line about how Pezuela would hire him to take care of Aceveda. Mara's conversation with Corrine. Tuesday nights will be dead to me when the series ends next month...

    Spike ran some amazing new Watchmen footage, tonight. That that wasn't the highlight of this evening's teevee viewing is a testament to the god-awesomeness of The Shield. <p> Never saw that ending coming. I am, however, compelled to assume that Cassidy heard Mara's role-call of Vic's major crimes.

    Only 5 left. It sucks to see this show end, but I'd rather have it exit at the top of its game rather than hanging on too long. This episode turned up the wick so much, I can't imagine how the remaining episodes are going to be. And heck, even Herc is saying nice things about the show. I won't bother to speculate on how it will end, but I don't think Vic is going to be a Fed...

    by The Tao of Joe

    ...I have to wake up at 4 a.m. to buy this show off of iTunes so I can watch it before work. And with the quality of the last three episodes this week, it was definitely worth it. That final interrogation scene was so intense. The look on Shane's face, and the way he had to make a petty decision like what his jersey number would be in the team's baseball league. Meanwhile, Vic, Ron, and Jules are making making their way out of the barn, guns drawn. It was intense. A total pay off for all day one Shield fans like myself.

I have been a Shield fan from episode 1 and I will miss this show big time..My hat goes off to everyone involved in this series for giving us a complex morality tale and a realistic look at the shit that is out there that needs to be cleaned up..Mackey I'm gonna miss ya!..

    by MachThree

    The quality of the show doesn't matter a darn to the Emmy voters. In fact, history shows they're more likely to vote for something the crappier it is. Hence this, and all other episodes of The Shield, has less chane of winning an Emmy than Dutch has of getting laid before the show ends.

    Why this episode did what 24 does better

    by Guy Who Got A Headache And Accidentally Saves The World

    Because it actually meant something. On 24 people die, change sides, go rogue every god damn episode. It's lost all meaning and it's hard to get excited over the same shit 100 times later. 24 needs to forget the saving the world bullshit and go back to the personal season 1 style.

  • Oct. 22, 2008, 10:49 p.m. CST

    Damn. Sweet, sweet damn.

    by ChildOfMen

    This show is just continuing to raise the bar. I've always thought the Shield was an excellent show, but damn if it isn't just going into the stratosphere now. Two of my other favorite shows, Homicide and the Wire, seemed to sort of lose some of their magic in their final seasons, but the Shield seems to be avoiding those problems and is amazingly just continuing to increase in excellence with each episode of this final season. And we've still got 5 episodes to go...... if they continue at this pace, I'd be hard-pressed to argue that this show is not in fact the best show of all time.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 5:18 a.m. CST

    I watched it again, and

    by The McPoyle Clan

    the look Dutch gives into the interrogation camera as all hell breaks loose in the Barn is priceless. These last 5 are going to be intense. With the Strike Team now dissolved and Shane on the run, I think the case-of-the-week stuff is done, and it's all just going to deal with the the shit that just hit the fan.<br><br>Mackey vs. Jack? I like 24, but no contest. On one level, Vic would mash Jack's face in before he has a chance to ask Chloe for a lamo CTU backup team. I have a feeling that the "redemption" theme 24 is going to attempt this season is going to feel more hollow than an empty warehouse.

    by Cobbio

    Go get him, Vick! F him up bad.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 3:22 p.m. CST

    Great ep., but one problem...

    by MachThree

    The guy who took a shot at Rahni is a pimp and a crook. He accuses Shane of setting up the hit, and everyone buys it immediately. I can understand why Vic and Ronnie believed him, but why did Claudette, Dutch, Steve etc.? Not that any of them think Shane to be an angel, but that they are that easily convinced that Shane is capable of trying to have another cop killed, all based on the word of a low-life scumbag? IMHO, this requires quite a suspension of dis-belief.

    MachThree...

    Dutch initially seemed to be a bit surprised by the allegation, Claudette had caught Shane with the suspect earlier and probably suspected that something was amiss, and everyone probably had a WTF moment when Shane disappeared immediately after he was implicated in the crime. Not a lot of suspension-of-belief is required.

    excellent

    one of the best hours of tv I have seen in years. All those years of stuff going down in Farmington has led to an explosive season.

    I'm sorry but...

    Vic is a complete bastard that deserves whatever he gets. He destroys everything in his path. Just go back an look at Danny's face when Vic tells her he's glad they were finally able to work things out. Right there she knows he's all kinks of fucked up in the head. We should all know that now. Corrine gave a hint, she told him he had to pay. Vic will pay big time.

    You're right, Billy...

    Vic is a bastard, but I'll be goddamn if he isn't a lovable bastard! Maybe not lovable, but certainly sympathetic and a character you really want to see redeemed. Credit the writers (and Chiklis) for that! Even so, he will have to pay.

    Capone, if you've seen all the eps except the last two, can you please tell us (but just put the 'spoiler' is cap letters for anyone not wanting to be spoiled) what happens in the 3rd last episode ?
