:thumbsup: Awesome kickass episode once again.

Wanted to post a comment last night after I finished watching, but the website was down.

-eek- The stuff with Hood in jail and Albino Man was some of the most brutal scenes I've watched in this series. The 1st flashback was pretty brutal, but man, the final flashbacks when Hood pulverized him, sliced his Penis off, and then used the weight to snap his neck was just sick.

:lol: and then to top it off that ending with Wicks. I knew he had to do something with him, but I didn't expect that.

But, once Wicks threatened to blackmail Hood, I knew he was fucked.

:lol: at Procter just happen to having sex photos with him and the Preacher's wife.


Why did Carrie sell out Hood to Rabbitt? Is she really trying to protect her life at Banshee and not have Hood fuck things up for her?

That's being generous. Yeah that ep probably topped the one where he beats up the MMA guy at the casino. That albino guy was beyond creepy. Nice to see Levy from the Wire play Jon Lovitz. That's two weeks in a row with a Wire vet in an episode. This show keeps getting better and better.

Spoiler:
Can someone explain the voicemail Hood was listening to in the post credits scene? Was that supposed to be the guy that he shanked in prison on that voicemail?

Yeah I didn't get that post credits scene.

:lol: My comment was an understatement, he actually sliced off Albino Man's Penis.

Great episode! As for the post credits scene, I assumed it was Wick's kid.

I see the prison flashbacks like i see Ollie's time on the island on Arrow. it shows how he became the man he is today.

cut off a man's chonson and break his neck with a wheel, turns you into someone who can kill a man with an A1 steak sauce bottle down the gullet.

Hood reminds me of Scott from Strike Back.

I think the voicemail is from the real sherriff's kid.

Another awesome episode. The albino freaked me the hell out. Really loving the flashbacks scenes on this show. And I figured they let Wicks sleep with the fishes when they were on the boat. Why else would they be out there? Lol.

I assumed the voicemail was Wick's kid. Since they just dumped his body in the lake, Hood must have kept his phone? Odd if it were the real sheriff's kid -- wouldn't expect him to carry his phone around with him -- plus it'd be unrelated to anything else that went on in the episode. The albino kept reminding me of the kid from Powder (though twice as big).

They showed Wick leaving him a message in the final prequel episode on the Welcome to Banshee website.

There's 13 small under 2 and a half minute episodes doing small setups in the 15 year span from when our lead goes to jail and right when Wick gets killed.

The scene in the promos where Deja is asking her mom about her birth father is one of them.

Yes, it's the real Sheriff Hood's son. It was said originally that his teenage son was estranged and wouldn't be a problem. Also, same exact phone (Evo 3D). Wicks had no money (and presumably no smart phone).

Interesting. I was waiting for the crazy albino guy to show up, since he was in the preview for the show. pretty brutal assault on Lucas at the beginning.

For the life of me, I couldn't remember who the fuck "Wicks" was. Then it dawned on me. He was the lawyer for many of the gang members in The Wire.

The dong chop fight was fucking insane. Guess that was the sign for nobody to fuck with Lucas anymore. :lol:

I was hoping it would show how Wicks got the scar on his face.

Yeah, I was wondering as well. I figured the albino would do it before he got his beat down to avenge his 'bitch' getting cut.
