    Nice turn of events on the show - most interesting point to date.

    I don't think it was the teacher any longer ... but who were they carrying out of his apartment then?

    There is too much involvement in the political race - there has to be a tie-in.


    Did you watch only 10% of the episode? Watch the last 10 minutes again. The tie in to the political race is that she was found in a campaign car, the lead suspect was also a major supporter of a lead candidates social program, and by extension are a reason why the candidate has been battered in the race.

    If the show has any depth - then the Richmond campaign or Richmond's life will have a larger part than just a campaign car and youth activity leader campaign supporter. Richmond's portions account for 30% of the show somewhat - it must be something bigger.

    True but you made it seem like the political scenes are just filler. I'm sure there is a bigger role to play, I'm not really impatient to find out though, it'll come when they're ready.

    it reminded me of when chris beat down michaels father on the wire.

    was thinking the same thing. Hopefully it starts picking up some speed now.

    Until tonight I have never - EVER - had anything on tv make me physically ill. Tonight's episode has changed that.


    The rape of Peg Bundy in Sons of Anarchy was worse, but yea that was tough to watch.

    Seriously. I was trying to figure out if I missed some viciously brutal part of the episode or something.

    You guys are thick. It was brutal because an innocent man was being beaten to death, not because it was gory, bloody. Etc.

    Like Moo said, it was the fact we knew an innocent person was getting beat to death. Also the fact that his idiot wife was sitting at home feeling sorry for her psycho ass just as she suddenly realized that lame shirt wasn't actually her daughters and she said it was because she was seeing/remembering what she wanted to see/remember. I was also sickened by the husband's weakness in blindly listening to his fucked up wife who he should know has no standing to criticize his approach in letting the cops handle the suspect when she nearly got her last two children killed because she was watching TV.

    Pardon us for associating people getting 'physically ill' with gore, blood, etc.

    ^ even taking the innocent person angle into consideration it was still pretty tame.

    I'm not saying Bennett "deserved it", but he certainly didn't do himself any favors by acting so suspiciously and consistently trying to mislead investigators by omitting information he knew was relevant. If he had been upfront from the beginning there's a very good chance that they would have ruled him out as a suspect (which would have saved everybody A TON of grief) and he would have still been able to carry out his little underground railroad operation.

    Mitch clearly needs therapy and I'm not sure anybody outside of Teri knows it or is willing to say so.

    What I thought was messed up was Stan's right hand man punching a giant rock again and again while Stan worked Bennett over.

    Blame all around...

    I'll agree that Bennett didn't do himself any favors by acting so shady and he should have been on the look out after the first run in he had w/ Stan.

    Mitch needs therapy for sure, but I'll settle for her getting a slap. That bitch set Stan on Bennett like a he was a rabid dog. He appeared to have broken away from that lifestyle only to have her guilt him into the beating.

    Linden fucked up by assuring Mitch there would be an arrest without doing her due diligence on the wire tap. Sloppy police work that. She should have probably followed up w/ what was happening w/ Stan after the first time he snatched Bennett up.

    Excellent scene, having him in the background doing that while Stan went to town. The way they framed that shot was genius.

    We watched the last three episodes in a row, and you can really see Linden coming apart at the seams.

    Bold 1: You think the cops would've turned a blind eye? They'd have called child protective services and probably arrested him and his friend for something like kidnapping. He would've been perfectly fine if Mitch and Co. did nothing and let the cops do their jobs. Bold 2: She needs her husband to man up and smack her out of her funk. Bold 3: Yeah, I saw this too. Pretty weird cat. Thanks to the suspect merry go round I now think somebody connected to Stan had something to do with Rosie's death. I'm thinking Stan's old mob family, his creepy rock-punching friend, or Mitch's sister.
