The Shield (season finale) 4/1

Only a little over an hour away...

Spoiler:
DOMINOES FALLING When a gang execution hits close to home for Claudette, Vic, Tavon, and Dutch work together to find the culprit before anyone else gets hurt. Shane, Lem, and Ronnie are forced to choose between hitting the money train without Vic and letting it go. Meanwhile Danny receives some life changing news and Julien's harassment reaches a whole new level.

W-O-W...

Sofer gone, Acevada on the counsel, the money train bust went off, Julien is near death..

I hope Season 3 starts earlier than Jan 6th

I bet one of the big themes for season 3 will be the Armenians eventually figuring out it was the Strike Team somehow.

There's no way any criminal group would let that much money get away without looking for it and/or revenge.

Maybe it's just me but
Spoiler:
did the Armenian goon who shot the 2 guys remind anyone of the crazy, longhaired guy who escaped in season 1 -- happened offscreen after they arrested him
?

Also, at the end, they sure had some weird expressions looking at the money.
Spoiler:
almost like it was fake/counterfeit or just a setup or something.
-- probably just shock and all that.

Great ending. Looks like Aceveda will still be involved, but not directly at the station.

A great episode but the last 10 minutes were really great.

I loved the shot of them standing there with the money. The look on their faces of total shock was great.

I can't wait to see what happens to Julian and Danny.

It's going to be hell waiting for Season 3 to begin.

I really liked that song at the end, I looked it up and it is:

Overcome - Live

Nice episode. With Aceveda on the council and Claudette as their boss, Vic won't be as invulnerable as he was this season.

I wonder if part of that look on their faces was from them wondering just what exactly to do with the money. It's not like they can take that to a bank and deposit it.

I almost thought it was fake money too...But maybe they were in awe as to how much there was...That was certainly a nice pile...

Why did the guy shoot those two guys? He looked a little put off, almost as if he knew it was countefeit...

Yeah, that was weird how they were just standing there looking at the huge pile of money and not doing anything. I wonder if there is a problem with the money, or if they are just thinking that this time they went too far? Next season can't come soon enough.

I gotta say after watching it again I think somethings up with the money. Ronnie and Lemonhead's expressions made it seem like something wasn't right.

I think the shooting at the dropoff by the guy that came late and got out of the car also could have something to do with it

The Armenian who shot the guys is not "Jesus" from season 1.

I was thinking the same thing as well could it be counterfit money they took from the money train? I guess we will find out next season hopefully sooner rather than later. And as for Claudette becoming Captain it won't last I'm sure Vic and the boys will find some leverage over her and Avaceda as well. I hope we see Danny again seeing her get the shaft wasn't right and Julien's blanket party was wrong I wonder how those two storylines will playout?

It's Over Under Sideways Down by The Yardbirds.

I enjoyed Shane's alias, as well. The was a moment.

I though the money was in Rubles for a minute...

Wow what a great finale! The wait for season 3 will be insane.

I also agree with counterfeit theory. This would explain the look on their faces at the end and why that guy went ballistic at the dropoff and shot his own Armenian crew.

A few weeks ago, I broke down and officially recognized this as the best show on television, and how do they respond ... ending the season with one of my favorite songs from my favorite band (who btw will be here in Atlanta in less than a month ... woohoo!).

Excellent finale. The closing montage was very well done. Waiting for next season will be painful.

Cletis Van Damme is my new favorite name of all time.

There was definately something wrong with the money. Those expressions were unmistakeable. What an incredible setup for next season. It's like all of this so far was just setting the stage for the real show to start.

Completely agree that it's the best show on TV right now. Gotta love the lines by Vic when Tevon had the gun at the guys' head:

"Looks like you have five wrong answers left"

*click* "I'm gonna need a raincoat".


This. Show. Rocks.

Great finale!

The final shot w/ the gang and the money was well-done. Their faces said a thousand words.
