THE FOLLOWING season two finale put aside the show’s normal routine of ridiculous situations and rollercoaster thrills to achieve perhaps the best episode yet.
Ryan sparing Joe Carroll’s life was inspired as was the strange “intervention” type dinner conversation where the psychotic twins, Joe, and even Claire chimed in offering Ryan advice on how to break the cycle of revenge.
Also great was Luke’s description of Joe Carroll as a failure. Epic fail indeed.
And for once a main character didn’t die which was okay as far as I am concerned.
Now going forward....
My predictions for next season....
Ryan vs Mark will be the principal battle of the first part of the 3rd season as his niece killed Mark’s twin Luke and he will be after her.
Joe Carroll will be in prison but will escape either towards the middle of the season or more towards the end of the season. There will of course be new followers. His escape might not be so dramatic this time. He may be needed on a case and then he engineers his escape or a condition of something happening (like a kidnapping) is his release.
The driver of the car that picked up Mark at the end of tonight’s finale will be revealed as someone important – Perhaps Ryan’s sobriety sponsor (played by Keith Carradine) or the Head of the FBI (played by Charles Dutton) or the boys’ father whom we’ve never met.
The question I have is what will Claire’s role be in all of this? If the actress is returning to the series, how will she be involved?
