  • The Shield really knows how to close out a season! Once again, they pull out all stops for a perfectly paced season finale that makes you wish Season 3 started tomorrow.

    Dominoes Falling indeed! The stakes are upped for every major character in this sizzler of a season finale: Aceveda's surprise win in the primary means he will be around for a while longer; Claudette deals with more family issues and rethinks her refusal of the chief's offer to promote her to Captain; Danny receives shattering job-related news; Julien tries to deal with renewed (and escalated) harassment on the job; Vic and the Team take down the money train, but at what price? And Dutch? Well, he's still Dutch.

    The Shield has perfected the formula it developed in Season 1. The writing, direction and ensemble action are perfectly in sync, creating a singular viewing experience that I haven't seen the likes of on television. Bring on Season 3!
