Episode Summary

EDIT

A local indian casino reopens and Proctor is on hand to welcome an ultimate fighter named Sanchez who will be fighting to promote the casino. Anna confronts the man known as "the Rabbit" from whom she and Hood stole diamonds from years earlier. We learn he is her father and she makes a deal to bring Hood to him in exchange for her life. Later, Sanchez celebrates his arrival at the casino by raping and beating a local waitress. Hood takes exception to this and confronts him at the casino. Hood and Sanchez beat each other senseless but Hood's rage allows him to come out on top. Proctor confronts an injured Hood and tries to buy him off, but Hood won't be bought.

    7.5
    If you weren't hooked on Banshee before than one of the best fight scenes in recent television memory should do the trick. The episode was action-packed and featured an introduction to just what the bad guy's sidekick can do while teasing a future weapon of some kind.



    Not a lot of drama outside of the action, but if that is your thing, and for me it was, this episode was right up your alley.moreless

    This episode was way better than last week, i can see where it's going now, the "case of the week" was more cohesive with the global story line, the "hero" has more substance, it was ultra violent and i liked it :)
  • Pretty good episode.

    7.0
    As things come further into focus, this show is starting to make sense. Will definitely follow for the rest of the season.

    • 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.
