So what is Lucas Hood's real name anyway?

This poll is stupid and undermines the thematic point being made by keeping Lucas Hood's real name a secret.

That's not even including what I'd call 'action' scenes (weapons, explosions, etc.) With those you need to include the S1, S2 & S3 finales, the Assault on Precinct 13 homage (everything involving Cheyton, really), the Hospital shootout in S2, everything else from A Fixer of Sorts (the Nola/Burton fight episode which included the strip club shootout and everything with Brantley), the field sniper...

Note: if you're looking for a reason to not watch Banshee again, I'm not going to make it easy for you :)

I'll admit I was really excited to finally see Hood vs Burton. This show gave me the greatest fight scenes on TV, ever, and they produced THAT. Did they have to fire the fight coordinators?

It wasn't what it could've been but still pretty good. Burton's drop kick was great. Good setting in the water.

Good finale to an amazing show.

Yeah, it was a really weak last season. They didn't even really have enough plot to full up the 8 episodes they had. Could have been wrapped up just fine with a movie.

I, too, was disappointed in the season compared to the others. And like other posters, I was also REALLY disappointed in the Burton/Hood fight. I had an idea that the killer was Burton, but kind of shoved it out of my mind and said it couldn't be him, it had to be the red herring Satanist guy. At any rate, the fight was really short and the editing was off. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who, throughout the entire run of the series, wanted really badly to see Hood and Burton fight. When we finally did get it, it's the final episode of the series and it ends up being a pretty big letdown. I wasn't bothered as much by how Hood just woke up with rage and will fuel--in fact, I thought it was fitting to have him flashback to his previous fights (Albino, Sanchez, meat packing plant fight with Proctor) where his willpower, rage and stubborn, dogged refusal to quit brought him out on top to win those fights. I even turned to my wife while Hood was slowly fading, in disbelief: "I'm really surprised here since this is what has kept him alive in fights like this where he was pretty much outmatched." She was reading an Outlander (another great show, haven't read the books but the show is pretty well-done) book for the 16th time and wasn't paying attention because she doesn't like the violence in the show, but that's beside the point. The point is, the fight seemed half-assed and not well thought-out, when I was expecting some brutal bloody fight that lasted for a few minutes. What we ended up getting was Burton pummeling Hood for what seemed like less than thirty seconds, and then Hood waking up and pummeling Burton for maybe ten seconds.


That said, positives:
  • Bunker vs Calvin
  • Brock and the RPG
  • Proctor presumably going out in a blaze of glory like an old-school mobster, complete with a drum-fed Tommy gun (Kai and the Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day)
  • Job's exit
  • Final scene with Sugar leaving the bar with the money

Also, does anyone remember what was up with the arrest report Eliza Dushku left on the bed while Hood was asleep? I thought it was the one that Hood had buried or something in like Season 2, but don't remember really.

I think it was her telling him she figured out who he was, but left the file for him to destroy. At least, that was my take on it.

The Hood vs Burton literally had Hood coming back from the dead (with ultra-strength), thanks to the power of his daughters love. And then Kai awkwardly stroked Burtons hair afterwards.

Also, Proctor assuring Burton was a :five: character moment for the two and the season. Kai was heartbroken and his dragon dying in his lap was doing so for a folly in his love for his master. It was beautiful and perfect imo.

EDIT: Also how is a homegrown Indian terrorist group not getting utterly crushed by three letter agencies like, hours after they murdered the convoy?

EDIT: Live posting S3E04 - Burton and Rebecca make a hell of a loving team. She is pretty badass now. The whole loving her uncle thing is still pretty god drat weird though. Also, why hasn't Burton tried to hit that yet? She fucks anyone with a dick and he's looked at her with them creepy eyes since the first time he saw her.

Just finished the episode where she tells him to resign but since I know there are four seasons I'm not giving her much chance of surviving the crazy Indians. Jesus Christ this show goes off the loving rails sometimes. It's so loving glorious. Also, holy poo poo crazy loving Indians. Jesus Christ. I love how this show does this stuff mid-season, most shows jut give us this level of tension and excitement in finales.

"I don't want to die tonight," said a character about to die. gently caress man I really liked them together. There's no way she lives after that line. Although this show likes curveballs so maybe Brock dies? I'm not sure.

EDIT: Oh my God she is forgiving him loving no no no non nononononono

Watch the full season, then watch the origins for that season. They're fun but not necessary and I don't know if there's a good way to know when they fit into the season and/or if they have spoilers.

The Saga version is all of them in chronological order so definitely don't watch that.

My God has Hood ever not hosed everything up? He can't even kill a sleeping guy. Get it the gently caress together.

Predicting that Rebecca kills Kai and become the kingpin. That or her attempts to earn daddies approval get her killed. I'm also giving it about 50/50 that she kills Brock's ex.

Kudos to the show for keeping me off balance. The season 2 premiere is slow and steady, setting up all sorts of things. There's a car chase that's pretty impressive, but the episode is mainly concerned with exploring the consequences of season 1's batshit finale.

And then episode 2 unleashes. Rebecca is kidnapped, Hood attacks security guards left and right, Siobhan beats her ex with a bloody bible, Carrie gets into a vicious prison fight literally minutes after arriving, and cows are blown up.

This show. :)

I'm going to go ahead and assume Samuel L Jackson's "BMF" tweet stands for "Banshee Mutha Fucka". I fee like that's a pretty safe assumption.

Anyway, just watched the finale. Yeah, the season was weak, but it send off was pretty good. I might have missed it, but did we ever find out Hood's real name? I think they decided to keep that one to themselves.

IDK if there's a thread for this, but did anyone catch Outcast last Friday?

It seems pretty compelling so far, the pilot was really good and creepy, and they got enough character development in for Patrick Fugit to make him interesting. The pilot was basically all the decent-to-good movies about exorcism condensed into one TV episode and done much better and creepier. It WAS pretty dark, with little to no humor involved given the main character's past and the overall plot, but if y'all didn't see it but are interested in having another show to watch in place of Banshee on Friday nights (and you're not creeped out by horror shows like this and can handle the dark subject matter), you could do worse than Outcast. I'm going to keep it in my queue, at least, unless it just gets dumb and lovely, because I like dark and brooding shows like this. Apparently Data was in the pilot too? I must have missed him.

Also, as an aside, though the series is over now, The Last Panthers was pretty good.

They didn't reveal it, and I'm fairly sure they let all the viewers know they didn't plan on it. I actually would have been pissed if they revealed his real name, and it didn't matter anyway. He was Lucas Hood to us all.
