Re: Ray Donovan (Showtime) -- Season 5 Discussion Thread -- premieres 8/6/17

My turn for clarification:

Am I forgetting previous scenes which set up the conflict between Frank Barnes and Avi, and Avi's descent?

Also, is the Smitty character someone we are learning about only through flashbacks this season, or was he previously a character?

Sorry, if the answers are obvious...I really am trying to pay attention.

I think it happened off-screen before the season started. They found the drugs and then some kind of shenanigans happened. Or at least I think - because I don't remember the season ending with any conflict and I don't remember seeing Avi until this latest episode.

I'm sure Smitty is the same deal. He was another patient also going for cancer treatment at the same time as Abby. We never saw any of the cancer stuff with Abby (other than her finding out she had cancer) with Abby - so this stuff happened between the 2 seasons.

Now it's MY turn to get some answers:

Who's the black chick and what did she take from Ray? What's going on there? As I get older, I find it harder to connect things in new seasons since I can't remember stuff from the previous season. Those recaps at the beginning of episodes don't always give enough details.

This season is really weird and disjointed and confusing.

It's like they reached a decision at the last minute to make it the final season and just through together a season and didn't have enough time to go through some storylines, so they just made stuff happen in off-screen and pushed up the timeline to skip all of it.

Re: Ray Donovan (Showtime) -- Season 5 Discussion Thread -- premieres 8/6/17

The black woman was a partner of sorts of that Tom guy, as they both worked for Sam Winslow and the studio. Tom and the black woman each got a half mil cash bag payoff to give back everything at the beginning of the season, which they obviously didn't.

The black woman seem pissed that Tom held out and is apparently getting another payday. What she took from Ray was what Sam Winslow really wanted - The evidence of cover up from the automobile accident that killed Winslow's daughter. But, how the black woman Vicky just conveniently died immediately after the robbery was just beyond contrived.

Man, did Terry do an assisted suicide on Abby?
