OMFG, that was the best episode of the season and possibly series. I was laughing so hard.

That was without a doubt the birthday party from hell. Hangover Cam on Ray and him dancing to Walk this Way was fantastic.

Pretty obvious the gym was a front for all of Ray's dirty money.

at Bunchy saying "I'm not gay". That was pretty telegraphed his "friend" had a massive hard on for him.

Awesome episode despite Abby's annoying shenanigans.

Their accountant mentioned it an episode or two ago - so it wasn't supposed to be a surprise except to Terry.

Yea, it was obvious from the start.

Awesome episode despite Abby's annoying shenanigans.
While she has every right to fuck another guy, I just feel sorry for the other guy having to put up where her shit now.

And then some.

There's always this double-standard in shows where the leading man does whatever bullshit he wants (Don Draper, Walter White, Tony Soprano, etc), but when the wife of one of these assholes has her fill of said bullshit, there's always this backlash against her being a bitch or a slut or something.

For me, its the wife/gf/etc knows their man is dirty but sticks around to benefit from it, be it money, big house etc. I know the characters are there to put some sort of constraint on the anti-hero, but it's still annoying.

Awesome episode and I've seen that shit in real life. I don't know how they do it. Is the material stuff really worth it?

The dancing at the end was great.

Ray Donovan will continue without its creator.

Ann Biderman, who launched and served as the showrunner of Showtime’s hit fixer drama for its first two seasons, is stepping down for the series’ recently added third go-round, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Multiple sources involved with the show attribute the departure to hefty financial overruns on the series, though Biderman still will be involved as a creative consultant.

Sources say Showtime, which also produces Ray Donovan, has begun negotiations with David Hollander, another writer/executive producer on the series, to step in as showrunner. Hollander penned the current season's highest-rated episode and his credits includes A&E’s The Cleaner, TNT’s Heartland and CBS’ The Guardian. Ray's second season finale airs Sept. 28 and its 12-episode third season will begin production early next year.

When the Liev Schreiber vehicle premiered in June 2013, THR’s chief TV critic Tim Goodman raved that Biderman had “created the most testosterone-fueled, rough and intelligent drama in ages,” and other critics agreed. Viewers tuned in, too, providing Showtime with the biggest premiere numbers in the network’s history. Though the second season, which launched in July, no longer has Dexter as a lead-in, it still has managed to average 1.4 million same-day viewers for its initial broadcasts. On a weekly basis, Ray delivers 5 million.

Mark Gordon and Bryan Zuriff will remain on the show as executive producers. Brett Johnson will remain as a writer/producer.

The Miami-born Biderman has built a brand predicated on dark, gritty, male-driven dramas. In addition to an early stint writing on NYPD Blue, for which she earned an Emmy, she created the critically beloved cop drama Southland, which moved from NBC to TNT. Biderman, however, did not remain on that series either.

Sounds like she was being let go because of the show going over budget. That's one way the network will let you go.

This show can definitely cut a little fat if they are having budget problems.

Except for the cast and guest stars, it doesn't look like a particularly expensive show to make.
