  • After serving 15 years in prison, a convicted diamond thief turns up in Banshee, Pennsylvania to collect what he's owed and ends up assuming the identity of the small Amish town's new sheriff.¬† With exceptional martial arts skills and a more direct form of justice, the new sheriff is more than a match for existing crime boss, Kai Proctor.

    • Job: Do you have any speed besides 'slow as shit'?
      Sugar: Hey, I'm recovering from a gunshot wound.
      Job: That's right, you got shot because you slow as shit.
      Sugar: How many times can you bury the same guy?
      Job: We wouldn't be out here if your lazy ass had dug a deep enough hole the first time.
      Sugar: Shut up and grab his feet.
      Job: Motherfucker doesn't even have feet.

    • Racine: Ladies and gentlemen, I'm special agent Jim Racine. You all know Agent Xavier. Let me tell you how this is gonna work. This is a closed federal hearing in which you will be delivering sworn testimony, 'cause everyone knows swearing on a Bible keeps people honest. You do have a right to have an attorney present. And I should inform you that if you exercise that right, you will earn my immediate and eternal suspicion.

    • Racine: I understand your Mayor recently suffered the misfortune of being blown up. This town is something else. I've asked Mr. Hopewell to serve as a witness to these proceedings. As he's married to Mrs. Hopewell, he's not exactly an objective party here. But since he will play no part in the resolution of these findings and since everyone in this town seems to be connected in some way to everyone else, I'm gonna let that slide.

    • Racine: (To Carrie) It's been my experience that when a man puts himself through that kind of hell, it's a pretty safe bet that there's some sex somewhere in the equation.

    • Racine: Local criminal elements are the sheriff's problem, not mine.
      Xavier: But why are they any different than Mrs. Hopewell?
      Racine: Because they are not the daughters of a Ukrainian crime lord.
      Xavier: But the US Attorney's office authorized you to conduct a full-scale hearing...
      Racine: Oh, for fuck's sake. Xavier, I've got bigger fish to fry.
      Xavier: Your fish is dead! You're so obsessed with finding this Rabbit that you're losing sight...
      Racine: He's not dead! You'd have another body to show me. Rabbit's got a fucking river of blood on his hands and you want to waste my time on small-town shenanigans?
      Xavier: How are you gonna explain what you did in there to Washington? It won't hold up.
      Racine: It's Banshee, Pennsylvania! No one gives a shit.

    • Brock: Listen, if there's anything I can do...
      Gordon: Well, maybe there is. I want you to keep an eye on Hood for me. Anything out of the ordinary, I want to be the first call you make.
      Brock: That's pretty much everything.

    • Brock: Juliet, Mr. Proctor here?
      Juliet: Is he expecting you?
      Brock: Oh, I imagine some part of him is always expecting me.

    • Sugar: I just think we need to worry about a high-ranking federal agent who doesn't seem to answer to anyone.
      Hood: Didn't your mother ever tell you? A wise man never looks a gift horse in the mouth.
      Sugar: No, my mother told me a word to the wise is unnecessary. It's a damn fool who needs the advice.

    • Opening Credit Sequence Info

      Ivana Milicevic: A laundry line, a symbol of sweet American home life, strung with sheer black lingerie. The winds of change reveal the ominous masquerade mask. Lucas is back, and it's only a matter of time before Ana's dark secret is hung out for all to see.

      Hoon Lee: When Lucas took the fall for their crimes, Job disappeared just like Ana. He is a faceless, nameless, erased person.

      Demetrius Grosse: Deputy Yawners gave up a path to a promising career in pro football to pursue law enforcement. In times of self-doubt, Emmett wonders what might have been.

      Antony Starr & Ivana Milicevic: The two former lovers share a photo, their lives are now bound together. The man's hand gently overlaps the woman's - but his shadow binds her wrist to the bed linen.

      Ulrich Thomsen: The kobe steak wrapped for Proctor's first attempt at a bribe for Lucas - and his first rejection.

      Daniel Ross Owens: A tree bursting with lush green life - a symbol of hope, possibility and strength. The young Mayor has a new vision for Banshee, but can he make it a reality?

    • Opening Credit Sequence Info

      Antony Starr: The Albino is Lucas' personal nightmare, a hulking symbol of the prison experiences that have left him emotionally and physically damaged. The meat cleaver is emblematic of Lucas' new brand of justice - the first real threat to Proctor's power.

      Ulrich Thomsen: After the casino fight falls through, Proctor is exposed as the man who holds the cards. The carving knife references both the meeting prior to Hanson's death as well as his realisation that his strategy with the new sheriff must be more surgical and precise.

      Ivana Milicevic: The locket in Ana's tiny shrine to the life she dreamed of sharing with Lucas. Although she's content with her new life, she still longs to dream again, to feel that passion that she once had with Lucas.

      Hoon Lee: At the diner, Job smashes a plate on a man's head when he attacks Job over his assumed sexuality. It not only shows his strength, but also his boiling point and perhaps a weakness when it comes to personal attacks.

      Demetrius Grosse: The convictions and symbolism of the neo-Nazi enclave threaten everything Emmett holds dear: his code, color, creed and authority as an officer.
