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.

I seriously hope that one of the major arcs this season is rescuing Job from the belly of the beast.

Anyone wise think they've started too many new things for a final season? We've got serial killer, white supremacists fighting Indians, Proctor as mayor, Bunker sleeping with his brothers wife, Job missing, getting the kids back, plus what ever the hell they're gonna show from the last two years and the final showdown of Hood/Proctor. I think I'm even forgetting some stuff.

Normally I'd say yes but I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt; before I binged through to get ready for season 4 I had honestly forgotten how much they managed to cram into season 3: white supremacists, the Indian tribe, Louisiana, Hood's real son, the entire bank heist & aftermath, Proctor's mother + aftermath, Rebecca's power grab & aftermath, and I'm sure there are a few things I'm forgetting. I'm sure that they could have gotten a 10-12 ep season if they had asked.

Edit: I wouldn't be surprised if the serial killer is someone we already know (Burton perhaps covering his tracks because he hated Rebecca?)

Also yeah who was the one handed dude?

Wasn't he one of the hillbillies that ambushed him on a prisoner transport? I thought it was something like he cut off his hand as a warning to the other hillbillies because he was sick of their poo poo and wanted to go home. I think it was in a riverbed.

I watched a bunch of S1, and a lot of what happened is stuff I thought happened in S3. There's so much insanity through all the seasons :stare:

The first time they showed her body, it felt gratuitous to me too. But as it kept coming back, it really became disturbing. But in a way that really underscored the gruesomeness. I understood it was keeping Hood up at night. The more they showed it, the less unnecessary it felt.

This show has never been a letdown before, and I'm assuming they'll make this whole storyline with the serial killer work too.

At the risk of playing Captain Obvious for a second, what's interesting to me is that Rebecca seemed to know exactly what she was walking into, and I think that in and of itself makes it more interesting than your average serial killer plot. Why would she agree to die so horribly, and what does it have to do with Hood?

The montage at the end of a lot of her scenes throughout the show were kind of an underscore of "Hey remember how hot and sexy this girl was for the last 3 seasons? Well good luck remembering her that way now."

Wasn't in love with the time skip and serial killer arc but I guess we'll see how it goes.

Nope, that was a different family (Moody brothers). No hand cutting-off (it was an ear).

Binged through the entire show in the past two weeks or so thanks to Jon Gabrus's podcast selling me on it. Was saying in Couch Chat that the end of season 3 was the best loving thing. So many emotions. Crosscut ammo loading scenes, sniper fights, knife fights, decapitations, fingers getting shot off, Sugar getting to kick rear end, Job getting to kick rear end, them both being hilarious, Gordon's death :smith: , hispanic gangster with eyebrow tattoos cutting off hands and heads with a loving chinese dao sword...Any other show would've had it be a katana, but Banshee don't play that poo poo!

Unfortunately coming down from that, I found the season 4 opener a bit of a disappointment. Positives: Timeskip is fine, Kai being Mayor totally makes sense, Brock is cool, Burton still gets to kick rear end and I find Bunker's brother to be quite an interesting character. Just that idea of some mild-mannered office worker family man secretly being a hardcore white supremacist is unsettling, even before he's crushing heads in vices while ranting about non-whites being on welfare.

But I think the show looks weird. I guess this is the season where they had to change shooting location? I thought it was season 3, but all the new buildings and the way it feels more like a city and less like some little backwoods town just feels really OFF to me. Even Sugar's bar somehow looks different and that's just a set so I don't even know why.

Also it still feels like they don't know what they're doing with Carrie. The resolution of the Dalton thread was real weak, and just reeks of hurriedly changed plans. The serial killer thing does seem tonally jarring for what the show is where it's suddenly gone from Bloodsport to The Killing (but I admit it's unfair to say based on one episode) or some poo poo. Where is Billy Raven? And I know this is the point, but I really miss Job (and Job's outfits). :smith:

Oh, and I'd like to believe that it's part of Lucas Hood's skillset that he can trim his beard down to a designer stubble with a pair of shears and also give himself a professional haircut.

What happened between Hood and the one handed guy? I don't remember that episode.

Rebecca. :(
Her and Dava have unfortunately been the most dead weight characters in the show for me, so I'm not that sad. Rebecca crossed too many lines to be sympathetic and was nowhere near cool enough to be interesting like Kai and Burton are.

It does seem like a bit of a waste, because back when she was left homeless and was basically forced to rely on her criminal uncle, who has her lovers strangled to death in front of her, like some terrifying hostage situation - that was interesting and she was sympathetic. But in season 3 they kinda chucked that out the window and she was just like "ooh, crime is fun".

Oh thanks, I totally missed that. Nice end for the character. But I wonder if that's them writing the actor off the show and we'll never see him or the lady who didn't shoot Chayton ever again...

On a totally unrelated note, given the reveals with Dalton and Hood's backstory at the end of season 3, I was feeling like the only way this show and name-mystery could end was with the line "My name is Michael Westen..."

Given that he's now driving around an old muscle car, I have to assume this is actually canon.

Weird how it only took a year and a half for Banshee to get to the size of Lexington, KY, and get funding for a brand new police precinct.

But then, Kai Proctor, a guy living in what I imagine is/was the only mansion in Banshee, is the mayor now. So upon remembering this, it felt much less weird.

I got the impression that Kai personally paid for the new police station so that he could truly own the cops.

Looks like Jon Gabrus and pals are doing a podcast for each episode of the show, and are promising special guests. (Hoon Lee will apparently appear on a future ep, and I'm scared to hear his real voice without ending sentences with "motherFUCKA")

Season 4 ep 1 podcast:
http://headgum.com/episode/episode-37-banshee-special-s4e1-w-sean-clements-sean-conroy-2/
Note: they've watched a few of the eps and recorded these out of order, so they SPOIL a couple of things - nothing too major, but hey. You also might find Gabrus intolerable, they go off-topic a lot and they misremember story elements and names, so there's that too!
